Buongiorno, Torino!

While Europe remains a cold destination this March, Italy is everything warm and cosy from the sights, the people and oh, don’t get me started on the food - or am I just been cliche? Well, let’s just say Mi sto divertendo molto (am having a great time)!

After a rather stuffed couple months, my soul was in need of a breather so I decided to board a Flixbus into Torino for 2 days where I met a really lovely and kind Italian from Sicily who took his time to show me around the city. His name is Gianluca and I met him on Couchsurfing.

Heres one thing you need to learn quickly about Europe - she’s not fancy nor decked with fragile skyscrapers. You’ll need to tune your eyes into artsy lane to appreciate the rustic museums, unique trains, sprayed cafes, marbled sidewalks, peculiar food and a raw display of art.


A quick tour of Turin would start you off right at the city center with the opportunity to walk around the city in a long stretch with gorgeous sites of the shopping malls, street magicians and musicians, statues, fountains etc. don’t get me started on the city square - the city center has over 4 of them with interesting history behind each of them. while Torino is one of the smallest cities in Italy, its still one of the best places to live and work.
