About Me

Hey everyone, this is Giulia. Giulia Cimarosti, full name.

This travel blog was born in 2010.

As for me, I was born in the mighty 80’s and I’m Italian by birth. However I have lived in the USA, in the UK, in Egypt and Honduras. Now I am back in Italy but… Who knows for how long?

Traveling is my oxygen. As simple as it sounds, I get high on discovering what’s going on on the other side of the world, and meeting new people on my trips.

I travel solo because I love taking time for myself and think. I’m probably what is defined a socially awkward person (You tell me).

Some background

I’ve spent a looong time in Egypt, mainly in Cairo, living and working there. I was there during the Revolution and all, but after about a year I forced myself to leave as my everyday life was not as enjoyable as it used to be anymore (more details about this on my blog!).

Now I’m back in Italy where I used to have a full time job, but in 2019 I finally took the leap and quit my job to become a full-time photographer and tour leader. Of course the blog is part of the project too!

About me

I like looking at the sky. The stars.

I like sleeping until late and going to bed late.

I love all things nature (except spiders and mosquitoes but I don’t kill them). I’m also a vegetarian and a wannabe vegan.

I’ve always been a somewhat melancholic person and I am ok with it.

People say I look good. What I know is that I get skinny to curvy and back all the time. So I’m always different.

I graduated with the highest marks. Here, I had to tell someone. This has never made any difference in finding a job in Italy, as sad as it can sound.

I take photos because A) I love it and B) it makes me feel good.

I like driving and I’m good at it!

Sometimes I practice meditation but I get distracted sooo easily! I should practice more.

Since I came back to Italy, I finally had time to do some things I didn’t have time for before when I was nomadic: playing bass guitar (I’m a metalhead!), working a “regular” job, and I even bought a house. Whoa!

Yeah but what does Giulia do for a living?

Photographer, blogger, tour leader. I also make websites, sometimes. How can I help you? :)

Got more questions? Ask me anything! My email is [email protected] and I’m waiting for your messages.

  • Giulia, thank you for your help. Your website really helped me making the most out of my trip. Finding the places you recommended was like finding a treasure while on a treasure hunt. Looking for the picturesque bar in El Dokki or going up to the Pizza Hut for the best picture in Egypt, is help gotten from your website that made my trip extremely memorable.

  • Thank you so much for all your advise Giulia. It was so nice of you to take the time and help me out with your knowledge and experiences of Egypt. We were a little insecure about visiting Cairo as it was our first time to an Arabic Country and on top during Nov 2012 when there was another wave of unrest. You made our trip much more easy as all of your answers to my (partially trivial) questions put my mind at ease. We also appreciated the suggestions about the things we thought about seeing and the ones we did not know about. You are a great Travel blogger and a very helpful person. I wish you many more great adventures and look forward to keep following your stories on your blog. Thanks again!

  • I had a 6day trip to Reykjavik (Feb. 10-15) and your blog is by far the best stuff i could find on the internet… articles really helped me a lot.
