Who am I...?
My name is Elena, I’m 29, I’m Italian and since January 2015 I’ve lived in the Canary Islands… exactly in Lanzarote.
How come I end up here…? Simple!
At some point in my life I realized I was no longer happy.
Too many things were not going as I wanted, and I was falling in a vortex of sadness and apathy.
Furthermore, in the last few years Italy did not offer much in terms of work and personal growth, even if you graduated.
And so… after a hard summer of seasonal work, I’ve been searching for a warm place to spend my vacation in autumn, hoping to enjoy a shred of sunlight.
And… I fell in love.
It was love at first sight with Lanzarote!
Once I came back in Rome, nothing was the same.
I tried to live my “normal” pace of life, but it seemed so inconceivable to me.
I couldn’t get used with all that stressed and resigned faces in the street.
Even Rome, the city I always loved, it was not my home anymore.
So I dropped everything and came back in the place that made me so happy just few days before, enchanting me with its extraordinary nature and with the warmth of its land, its people, its 300 days of sun.
I’m here for years now, with a view to discover all 7 islands of this wonderful archipelago little by little!
How Vita da Canari was born?
It’s not every day you wake up in the morning, go outside and find yourself in a foreign reality, living your everyday life in continuous amazement.
So I’d like to tell what my eyes see in this piece of heaven, left outside the Pillars of Hercules but still european; located just in front of Africa, and contaminated with South American culture.
The blog VITA da CANARI was born to share my experience, to tell about landscape, excursions, relax moments… wishing it could be an asset to find tips and advices when organizing your trip to the Canary Islands.
Are you in your office / store / home, imagining yourself in a dreamy beach, or backpack exploring new places?
I can not ensure that it happens, but I can give you a window to look out and travel with your mind.
…and maybe give you the input to make this journey real!
I really hope you appreciate the content.
Have a good read… or a good trip 😉
