Sister Story - Veronica (P)

Name: Veronica

Age: 26

About: I have always been confused about my future..and I am still..but the only thing I always wanted to do is to travel,  meeting people,  exploring places and cultures. One day, while I was living in my own town, working in a boring position,  I said to my self: Do it!  Do it Now!  So I did. I started traveling in Spain (the beautiful Santiago way) and then Portugal,  Senegal,  India,  Nepal,  Myanmar,  Cambodia, Thailand, Indonesia and Australia..where I am at the moment, traveling alone. I still don't have any plans for the future but the only thing that I know is that this is not my last destination!  😉

Why did you decide to travel? Because it is in my nature! I can't stop!

Where do you come from? Italy....but I have never felt Italian

Where do you want to go next? Maybe New Zealand,  South America, California.. All over the world!

What is your number one tip for travelling? Investment in travel is an investment in yourself. So,  never give up during difficult times!

What has been your biggest challenge to overcome? I've done a lot of difficult things like hiking a volcano, Himalaya trekking, swimming with sharks.. But the biggest challenge was finding happiness travelling alone!

What do you miss about home? Of course my family, puppies and friends..but also the real Italian food!

What have you learnt about yourself? Now I know who I am, that I can do everything that I want in my life and that the happiness is inside me..not in a place.. Not in other people.

Favourite Quote? I rather have a passport full of stamps than a house full of stuff.

Favourite new thing? (i.e. food you have tried, skill, tradition, place) Hang out with people that I've never meet before.

What advice would you give to other girls wanting to travel? Just be positive and open to the world. All the problems are only in our mind. So,  take a big breath and do it!  Now!
