Thank you so much PedroL!

There’s no such thing as a small act of kindness, they say. That is so true. This is something I always associate with myself and my way of living. I believe in kindness and this world would be so much better if everyone remembered that. I admit that when I receive one of these beautiful acts of kindness I am always surprised, and when I did read one of the latest posts by PedroL I found so kind of him that he mentioned me among the bloggers in his article. So let me introduce PedroL, one of those special kind people that luckily I met thanks to this blog and my instagram account. First of all, please go and meet him here (at https://worldwidepedrol.com/) He is an excellent writer who collects stories around the world to share them with us. Dear PedroL, as promised, here there are my answers to your questions:

🌀First things first: what would you say about yourself that can be surprising? It might be the fact that I am a twin, something that I’ve (weirdly) never mentioned here in my blog. I do not know why, maybe because I miss my twin sister too much since at the moment we’re not living in the same country. She is my best friend and family. I might also have missed here that my second name is Kiwua, a name that no one else got because has been invented by my father (like Iki, my twin’s name, and Tjuna one of my older sisters’ name)

🌀 Where do you live and what are your 3 favorite things about this place? I am living in Cambridge, in the Uk. I love: its parks; the love, protection and respect for dogs the people have here; and the thing that everything is always so organised (in comparison to all the chaos around my place in Italy ..)

🌀If it wasn´t the pandemic and you could be abroad, where would you be at this moment and why? I would be in Spain, because I love its culture, its people, its language and art. Also because I would love to be in a warmer country. Maybe even because my boyfriend would be from Spain. 😁

🌀Either on blogging or arts or maths, what are your biggest inspirations and how do they inspire you? My inspirations are mostly photographers and filmmakers such us: Rodney Smith, Julie Waroquier, Margaret Durow, Sejkko . Recently I’ve been also looking at some different kind of youtubers such as Sorelle Amore ( I love her energy, and her ability to do everything by herself with the camera), or Francesca Ruvolo with her Wildflowermood. Among my favourite writers, Haruki Murakami.

In any case I am always looking for new inspirations, I like to see how artists express themselves and how they show us their view of life and all the shades that not always you can immediately see.

🌀 What are your tips to have a successful blog? I believe that the main tips are: always being yourself, spreading positive, inspirational and motivational messages, and for sure the consistency on posting is crucial for the success of a blog (still working on that)

🌀 What are your goals for this year and how do you imagine yourself in a decade? By the end of the year I expect first of all to be happier than ever. Also to be in a new place, with clearer ideas on myself, my life and future. In ten years I see myself overjoyed in a beautiful place that I feel properly mine, with clear ideas on myself and my life.

🌀 If you had the chance, what would you ask about me? (and I promise to answer in a future post! ahah) Dear PedroL, what has been the latest act of kindness you have received? What are your favourite writer and biggest inspirations? and what are your objectives for this year too? 😜

[Again, thank you so much. Writing is always very beneficial to me]
