This article was long due (like...3 years long due!) But you know me, I'm a super slow writer!Everyone knows how much I loved the Philippines and my visit to Palawan was certainly one of the highlights of the 4 months I have spent in there.
However... before flying to Palawan, it took me like 1 month (no kidding) to decide whether I should go to El Nido or Coron (2 of the most amazing places in the Philippines).... well well... so glad in the end I decided to visit both and now here I am, trying to compare them.
So who will be the winner between these 2 paradises? You can read it or even just look at the pictures/video to decide for yourself!
#Philippines #Palawan #Coron #ElNido #Paradise
Barattare Leoni con Cammelli? Sacrilegio! E invece no, anche con il ricordo del mio viaggio magnifico nel sud dell'Africa, sono rimasta affascinata da Marrakesh, capitale del Marocco. Sicuramente piu' accessibile dall'Italia ma non meno meravigliosa di altre località remote dell'Africa.
Se vuoi farci un salto, leggi i consigli su cosa non perderti in questa citta' coloratissima nell'articolo che ho scritto per Smazing Life, un portale con articoli che spaziano dai viaggi ai consigli di bellezza, come rimettersi in forma e tanto altro. Scritto da donne...per le donne! <3
Have you ever been to Rome, if so... what was your reaction, HATE OR LOVE?
No matter how many times I visit Rome, I have lived in the eternal city for 3 years and, more than 10 years later, I still feel my heart skipping a bit when I finally see the sign "ROMA TERMINI".
Rome has something magic I can't even start to describe, it is the only city in the world who has its own soul, and not everyone can feel it.
Your approach to Rome it is going to be black or white: either you'll love it for life or you'll hate it for life. Mine was, and always will be, Love: At first sight and forever.
No matter the crazy traffic, the dirt on the streets, the crowded touristy sights.
Rome will remain the most beautiful city in the world to me.
Especially when totally jet lagged you find yourself walking at 4 am in it's deserted and unusually quiet streets just in time to get to Castel Sant'Angelo to admire the sun rising over the Tevere river. MAGICAL! <3
Thanks, Nomadic Matt for the feature, it's always a pleasure to recall my story, my misadventures and to tell people that they might be the next one to do something crazy as I did almost 5 years ago! #DreamBig guys! ALWAYS!
"The moon is the first milestone on the road to the stars"
13/10/2016 - 13 /06/2017 = 8 full moons here in Mexico.
From that very first night, looking at the gigantic blue moon to now, the last view of its beauty in Mexico. Time has passed in a flash, hard to believe that 8 full moons would have changed me so deeply.
Forever thankful for having chosen Mexico as my home, I will miss it very much, but if there is something I have re-learned in Mexico is that living in the here and now is the key to happiness so I will enjoy every single moment away from the place I love...until we meet again! ♥
I can't even count how many people asked me about Thailand! Well then, here we go, Not only you can read a super detailed guide on all you need to know before packing your bags, but thanks to @ultimateclassairfares you can also travel in style! <3 If you have any questions, or more things you want to know about Thailand, let me know so I can also add them to the article ;)

The magic of a cloudy sunset in #sardinia 💙
The rock you can see from the distance is called "Pan di Zucchero", literally "Bread made of sugar". The panoramic view from Cagliari to Masua/Nebida, in the south west part of Sardinia, is one of my favorites, especially at sunset 😍
Check out & follow me on my new account @welovesardinia for more Sardinia inspiration!

I'm going down my memory lane of my times in Koh Tao, another great place to try! if you are headed to Thailand, check it out... it's a super comprehensive guide on how to get your license and get close and personal with whale sharks & turtles <3

Check it out if you have the same dream <3 #Drooling
Sometimes a relaxing day in a lovely location is what you need after days of moving around non-stop! Here I'm in Tulum, and...surprise, even if they are quite fascinating, there are no picture of the famous spot at the ruins :D I would have rather stayed in the swimming pool and chill all day long <3
I love Tree Houses, no ... I'm actually obsessed with them! So here is a piece about my favorite tree houses hotels around the world that I will be definitely checking out!
Soon to come I will make another list with just some private tree houses, to drool over a bit.
What is your favorite?!
Let's start the new year by affirming who we truly are, without fears, expressing our opinions freely. If you feel like your behavior is significantly different from your real self, then it means you are in the wrong "relationship" (with your job, friends, partner...it doesn't matter).
The right things are the ones that allow you to be yourself, no matter what. Here is my take on why you won't see any change in me because I have this job. Same old clumsy, quirky, weird Clelia as usual ;)
#Namibia was the first country I visited in #Africa, I couldn't have started better. Surreal is the closest word to describe the beauty of this place! Have you ever been there? If not, you are missing out BIG TIME!! <3
Wild Dog Safaris Thanks for the incredible experience!!!
Since I moved to Mexico I had the opportunity to visit amazing places (a lot more coming soon on this page so stay tuned! This one is a mini video of the day trip I took from #PlayaDelCarmen to #Akumal to finally swim with the turtles and manta rays.
In here you can just see the turtle as I'm putting together a bigger video and a blog post on how to visit Akumal responsibly as I think it is very important to respect these lovely creatures.
We are in their home after all, so we should pay extra care to avoid destroying their habitat just for our own amusement <3
Have you ever been to Akumal? Or swam with the turtles? If so, share your picture or video! To the next adventure.... Ciao!!
A mini tour of my flat in #Mexico! I hate being in videos but here we go! Talking in Italian, welcome to my lovely house 😍
My interpretation of the super Moon yesterday evening in Playa but... in blue ;) Turns out that the first stable habit I have created so far in here is a nice long walk on the beach every night! <3
Food for thoughts in here! I still haven't found the perfect place to settle down (but I'm working on it right now!)
Everything that Lauren Juliff says in this article is so true. Of course, each one of us has his/her own reasons for wanting to find some more balance in life, and travelling full time, as I always repeat, is not for everyone.
Heck, after a few years is not even for me. I will always love travel and will never stop for good, that's for sure, BUT ... read the article and you'll have a good idea of what I'm talking about ;) (one day I will add some of my reasons too).
Freedom is not necessarily being able to leave your routine but also being able to create a routine that makes you feel happy and accomplished. That's what freedom is all about to me.
So, what do I do when I am not hanging from the edge of the highest waterfalls in the world, looking completely nuts? I try to look nuts on a deserted beach, waving to invisible people :D For the records, no, I'm not nuts! There were a few friends in the water too :)
Literally, this was the highest moment of my African trip :D I did this at the end of 3 spectacular weeks camping with Wild Dog Safaris, an overland adventurous journey from Namibia to Zimbabwe and then I decided to cross the border to get to Zambia to try this crazy adventure <3 Would you do anything like this? Have you ever done something really crazy?!
Why Traveling to the Philippines is a MUST! (and I loved it so much!) Have you ever been??
There is no place like home! #Sardinia <3

This is what happens when you try to be cool! :D
Today I spent the whole afternoon doing one of the things I love the most (even if I'm not a professional, or maybe because of that!): creating videos!
I have so much footage from my 2 incredible months in Africa and today I decided to put together a quick video with some of the highlights of my time in Uganda and Namibia.
Landscapes AND people, it doesn't get any better! This video is just an appetizer... I had to choose and cut a lot to avoid creating a full 2hrs movie!
So many of you have been asking me when I'm going to publish my articles (I know...I'm super late, but oh... words are so hard to come when it comes to Africa! I guess everyone knows that by now <3)
I'll dedicate the whole month of August writing about my incredible adventures in Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Kenya, Tanzania and the Seychelles!
I'll try to give some practical advice based on your questions as well as an emotional recap of my journey (finally!).
Thank you so much to all the people that made this once in a lifetime trip possible. I have no words to express how incredibly awesome and professional you all have been!

Rome to me is more than a city. I always say that it's a place with a "soul". Everyone probably knows the main sites as St Peter's Basilica, Fontana di Trevi, Piazza di Spagna and, obviously, the Colosseo, but what about the less known places? Do you have any other to add to the list?
If someone asks me which article on my website I'm more attached to, I wouldn't have any doubt about it. It's definitely the one I wrote about my visit to Auschwitz - Birkenau.
Traveling doesn't always equal stunning places but it also means understanding our history and most importantly, trying to avoid doing the same mistakes again. This is why it is so important for everyone to visit Auschwitz at least once in their life.
Have you ever been there? If so, what was your reaction?
No matter what they say, keep trying, chase your dreams if you can. Life is one, make the most out of it!
Want to learn from my mistakes? here are 10 travel hacks to help you plan a stress-free holiday... Halleluya!!! :D

QUAL'E IL VOSTRO SOGNO PIU' GRANDE?
Questi giorni mi avete fatto capire quanto anche una persona semplice e normale come me possa nel suo piccolo fare qualcosa per gli altri.
Ho ricevuto tantissime lettere e messaggi stupendi, di persone semplici, un po come me . Spaventate dall'incerto ma che cercano il coraggio per cambiare. Quello che voglio dire e'... Non Mollate! Non esistono fallimenti, soltanto lezioni di vita che ci fanno crescere.
Voi mi avete detto che sono una fonte di ispirazione, ma non avete idea di quanto voi abbiate fatto per me!
Grazie a tutti di cuore <3
The more I travel, the more I realize that people can really make or break a trip. It doesn't matter how awesome a destination is, the single most important factor to transform an average trip into an epic one is interacting with the right people. Is it true for you as well?
I'm almost done (It's taking me soooo long to finish this but it's going to be worth it!)
