No hay fecha que no llegue ni plazo que no se cumpla

IMG_3735

Bien dicen que no hay fecha que no llegue ni plazo que no se cumpla. El 15 de agosto del 2012 comencé una increíble aventura al dejar mi país para venir a Italia a cumplir un sueño. Por fin terminé mis estudios, tengo un diploma y un nuevo idioma dominado. Conocí mucho más de la cultura italiana y de su historia. Logré entender el dialecto napolitano y hacer un verdadero Tiramisù. Hice amigos que se volvieron parte de la lista de las personas más importantes en mi vida. Tuve la oportunidad de estar cerca de la persona que amo durante casi 11 meses. Me llevo 83 kg de equipaje físico y toneladas en el corazón. Hoy llega el día que trataba de evitar ver en el calendario. No me quiero ir pero la situación es así e che possiamo fare? 

Hace una semana dejé el departamento; quedó como aquel 17 de agosto, con sus paredes blancas y un gran espejo en la pequeña sala. Sin cojines, sin sábanas ni almohadas, el baño sin cosméticos y el perchero ya no tenía ningún abrigo colgando, ningún paraguas. Le di las llaves a Vera y me fui a casa de mi amiga Andy a pasar la noche. Después de eso fui a pasar los últimos días con Lorenzo en Nápoles. Cada tanto, me salían las lágrimas y solo me quedaba en silencio pensando qué será de nosotros. El futuro no está escrito. Pero no hay persona más fuerte y más positiva que él. “Mal que vaya, nos vemos en Diciembre, voy para año nuevo.”

 

Espero encontrar la oportunidad de estar pronto de regreso aquí y sabemos que mejores cosas están por venir 🙂

I really don’t know how to translate the saying in the title of this post. Maybe: there’s not a date or deadline that will not be complied. In august 15th I start the incredible adventure leaving my country to come in Italy following a dream. Finally I finished college, I got a diploma and a new language was learnt. I met a lot about of italian culture and history. I’m understanding Neapolitan dialect. Got friends that become family and the most important people in my life. I had the chance to be near the man who I love for about 11 months. I’m carrying 83 kg of physical baggage and tons  in the heart. Today is the date I was trying to avoid in the calendar. I don’t wanna leave but this is the situation e che possiamo fare? 

Last week I left the apt; was empty just like august 17th, white walls and a big mirror in the little living room. No cushions, no linens or pillows, the bathroom without beauty supplies and the coats were not in the rack, either the umbrella. I gave Vera the keys and I went to Andy’s to pass the night. Then I went to Naples to spend my last days in Italy with Lorenzo. Once in a while I cried and in silence thinking about us. The future is unwritten. But no one is stronger or more positive than him. “At the very least I’ll see you in dicembrer for New Year’s Eve.”

I hope be back soon and I know better things are coming 🙂

Once upon a time in a Royal Palace…

Once upon a time there was a girl traveling with a memory keeper and a notebook…

IMG_3601

I confess I am obsessed with the royal life, well not the current royal life, I am talking about the royal life of the XV or XVIII centuries. Today we finally visited La Reggia di Caserta, a beautiful and huge palace just a few minutes from Naples. Kind of Versailles, this palace was constructed for the Bourbon kings of Naples and actually, is the largest palace in Europe with more than 2 million m3.

This amazing palace has 1,200 rooms, including two dozen state apartments, a large library, and a theatre, some of those still furnished by original pieces (Bed heads and linens, bathroom furnitures and a huge collection of antique books in the library). The gardens and fountains are pieces of art. Such a great place to visit, as a museum and gallery inside of the rooms (expositions changing once in a while) or just walking or riding thru the gardens.

Unplugged

IMG_3574

Well, now I am trying to enjoy my last days in Italy. It’s been so hard to say good bye to my friends cz I know will be so difficult to meet again those who live actually in the other side of the world.  Now I’m in Naples spending all the possible time with him and his family. This week we visited a little town called Palena about an hour by car from Naples. Small and very quiet, the perfect place to be unplugged from everything.

PS. There is not a place like Palena to sleep very well! Good night.

Vespa girl

Una vez más posteando algo de lo que hago como diseñadora. Desde que vine la primera vez a Italia amé las motos Vespa. ¡Son divinas! y a decir verdad he querido comprarme una pero soy demasiado miedosa y no se si podría manejar con este tráfico tan loco. Ya falta poco para regresar a casa y decidí hacer una tipo postal con los lugares representativos de este hermoso país acompañados del ícono del medio de transporte italiano, Vespa.

Again posting about my work as graphic designer. Since my first time in Italy I fell in love with the Vespa. Gorgeous! and actually I’ve been wanting to buy one but I am fearful and I really don’t know if I could drive with this crazy traffic. It’s just about a couple of weeks to come back home and I did this postcard with the italian highlights places and the icon of the italian transport, Vespa. 

Viareggio

IMG_3002

El clima está perfecto para ir a la playa, ok no si estuviera en México, pero después de estar a temperaturas bajo 10ºC ahora con unos 20º no hay nada mejor que agarrar el primer tren rumbo a Viareggio y dar un pequeño paseito con amigas.

The weather is perfect to go the beach, ok not if I were in Mexico, but after been but after being at temperatures below 50°F now with a 68ºF there is nothing better than take the first train to Viareggio and take a little walk with friends.

I really enjoyed this little vacation with my boyfriend and other two friends. Unfortunately we couldn’t visit Anna Frank’s house because we had just a couple of days and the line were too long. However we visited the Heritage where we could see Vincent Van Gogh’s works. Was quiet a fast trip, we tried to visit all the possible places and trying to do it I got very sick from the second night. But doesn’t matter when you are in a place as lovely as Amsterdam is.

My first spring break out of the beach. Not sun, not hot weather; just cold and an amazing city. I loved Amsterdam, I think I could live there, it’s such an incredible city. Full of art, shops, history, canals and coffee shops (Oops!). We flight from Napoli to Milano and then Amsterdam, quite tired, cz we got at the airport at 5:30am but however was great.

This time I’d like to share with you photos taken with my fav app in iPhone: Hisptamatic. Since we are flying until we flight our last day in this beautiful city.
