Travelling with last money than you need

20140418-232951.jpg

I decided to come to Italy for two weeks right on the Easter time, of course I knew nothing would e actually cheap since it was terrible to book hostels. Then I tried to go for couchsurfing but since I’m traveling with friends it’s hard to find a place for all of us.

So I needed the money for the hostels. And that’s I got, also it isn’t cheap to go from one city to another. The trains are between 7€ and 60€ and even the buses are not that cheaper.

Firstly I went to Venice (the flight was really cheap then to Verona and Bologna. Now I’m writing from Florence. Till now I got two rides for 5€ from the Blablacar and one train. And since I was really excited about Italian food in the beginning I ate more than I should pay for it. So it’s the third day I’m going to the supermarket looking for deals and eating less.

It’s kind of sad not eating as much as you should in Italy. But ok, it’s necessary. I’m in Florence and I could stay three days without eating just to see all the museums and lovely stuffs they got here.

When you travel you kind of start to summarizing your life to eat, sleep and walk. You take off some of the usual a necessities and make everything as simple as it can be. From that I learned I didn’t need to buy more cream and I didn’t need a dessert. Also I didn’t need to stay with a good hair all the time and to do nail polish.

I need to eat, especially lasagnas and gelatos. I need to walk, the streets are unbelievable. I need to drink water (because we all need). I need to laugh and stay in the line to see Dante’s museum. I also need some rides because the train ticket to Rome is fucking expensive.

I have the money for the hostels, 10€ for food for each day. Some for museums and way less than I’m gonna need for the transport. But that’s ok. Believe me, you can do a great job if you pay attention on your on needs.

Make a list of what you really think is necessary and start to cut off some of the things.

I also realized I need a internet and this is annoying me. You know, most of us now can’t even walk around without looking at the screen. I need to look at my phone from hour to hour.

It shouldn’t be this way. I couldn’t changer this from nothing. But for now I can at least stop checking what’s app.

I have to check something else. I have to check Rome and the food for tomorrow.

For the right to listen to One Direction

I was coming back from a Makeup shopping when I met a friend in the streets, I didn’t realize I was singing one direction before talk to him.

He stopped, his face was terrified and he said in a really disappointed that he didn’t expect that from me. Firstly, I was like “what?” And then I understood it was because of the teenage song I was singing, the kind of music he thinks it’s terrible and only dumb 12 years girls listen to it.
But well, I don’t know you, but I kind of like to listen to this kind of songs somethings. It’s not my favorite, it will never be. It’s not the song I play in the night while I’m trying to find myself. But it’s the once I sing coming back from a shopping day. Is it that bad?

Even so I have an amazing background about music in my family. I think since I was 15 I didn’t spend one single night without listen to some progressive rock songs. Actually, I already proved I knew more about it than this friend who was disappointed with me.

So I think music is like any other art expression. Somedays you want to watch a really funny movie and you don’t turn to Godfather, somedays you just watch American pie and you are good with it. This friend loves American Pie. But well, he never thought about how bad it’s the movie if you think about acting and production stuffs? Don’t know. You might like everything or nothing and even so watch everything you want.

With music, it’s the same. Music is expression, it’s human. The problem is not if you are listen to one direction, it’s if you only listen to it. Music should be free, should be freedom. You must listen to everything and try to know all about it. You will never do it though. But you can’t stay in the same kind your whole life. It’s sad.

It’s sad how some people keep listening to the style, complaining bout how music were better 50 years ago. But that’s not true. I believe music changes as humanity does. And all you have to do is look for it. You might find really good stuff, you’d rather stay listen to old famous and complaining about the new famous?

It’s just numbers by the end. You cannot, you must not stop in time. As all the art expressions music can also be with you. Should also be with you. and how could that be possible if you only stay by one station? Thinking that you are right and everything else wrong?

In the 50’s or 60’s, old people were complaint about rock n’roll. It was an evil thing from young and dumb people. Do you really want to look like somebody from the 60’s? Isn’t better to pfree your mind from it?

I’m not saying we all should listen to boybands. I’m just saying we all should listen to something new, good or not, at least once. It’s bad to read the same kind of book every year, you lose more than you gain.

Italy, Venice and Ice cream.

Venice is the First stop from my third eurotrip, which isn’t actually eurotrip since I’m gonna to stay only in Italy. Well, this country is amazing and deserve more than one week around. Actually, two!

Venice, Verona, Florence, Pisa and Rome. Unfortunately I’m not gonna be able to visit my lovely Corneoles, but I’m gonna be back for then ASAP.

This city has the most amazing ice cream I had in life. You should try the venezziano and lemon. Maybe Nutella or whatever, I’m sure anyone should be good.

Firstly, sorry about the late, but spring break is here and we are back to road!

Some stuff that I found for now: if you come to Italy, eat! Try most of the pizzas, lasagnas and ice creams. Do not leave without eat! Don’t go to mc Donald’s or BK! Eat local food, it’s amazing (and not that expensive).

I have way more things to say but for now (typing from the iPhone since I have no free wifi in the hostel) the good is the first and specially subject. I’m coming back asap. And if you are around, let me know.
