About me!

I am a black cat who loves travelling, wandering and exploring.
I am curious about life, people, places, food and history. I may seem a bit shy and withdrawn, but I am a good observer.
My favourite place in the world is Great Britain, and not only because there black cats are considered lucky.
I totally have a soft spot, or rather an obsession, for British places and I try to go there as often as I can.
That's why every first week of the month you will find a post dedicated to this country and the things I love about it.
But I also like getting to know new places: I love cities with an old fashioned charme that makes you feel like you are stepping back in time; but also breathtaking natural landscapes, exp. of the Nordic kind.
Every second week of the month I will tell you my personal Top 10 about a place I've visited or some aspects of my travels.
But, since I'm lucky enough to live in one of the cities I consider among my faves, every third week of the month I'm going share with you some tips about what to see and visit here in Turin.
What else about me?
Whether I'm travelling or not I'm spending most of my time reading, writing, crafting and daydreaming... so you will also find some little evidences about this every now and then ;)

All the photos you will find in this blog are made by me, unless otherwise stated.
Feel free to use them but please credit me.
Thank you!

  4. Hi beautiful black cat! I am the keeper of three kitties and miss them buckets when I go travelling. But when I went to Great Britain, I too became a fan. My favourite parts--the Outer Hebrides and the great cities of London and Edinburgh.

    1. Hi!! Great Britain is awesome, isn't it? I haven't been to Hebrides yet, but they're definitely on my list. I love London and Edinburgh a lot, they are my two top favourite cities ever.
      Cuddle to your kitties and happy travelling!!
