New Year, new start

2 Jan
It’s not a New year’s resolution even if it looks like one. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a while now, but couldn’t put myself into it. Why now? And what happened with last year?
Well, life happened. Me happened. Or, to be more precise, you happened.
I’m thinking about all those film scenes where two are breaking up and one of them says to the other: “it’s not you, it’s me”. Only, in my case, it’s not me, it’s you.

Who are you? I kept wondering who I was writing for. I mean, I’m a Romanian girl living in Italy and writing in English and my experiences are, well, thrice lingual and thrice cultural. Can you relate to me in any way? Is relating so important?¬†Will I be able to find my own ‘voice’ and be true and honest to myself?¬†Could my point of view give you some insight or writing for you might lead me away from myself? Is it ‘myself’ worth knowing with all those travel blogs out there?

It took me a while to realise something pretty simple: if I write for myself, there will be at least one reader if not happy at least content with the result. Me.
I’m not sure yet what shape my blog will take, but I hope you’ll also like it enough to stick around.
