a spoonful of wonders

Hello! My name is Chiara - welcome to my little universe :)

I have legit been traveling since I was four months old. I started planning my own adventures at 15. From 2013 to 2016 I have lived in the US, China, France and back to China - eventually to return to Italy, where I am from, in 2017.

Although a piece of my heart will always be in Shanghai, which I consider my second home - heading back did not stop me from wandering around: between 2017 and 2018 I visited 25 cities in 8 different countries.

Throughout my journeys, I have met wonderful friends from all over the world; I have seen breathtaking views and lived big city lives; I have taken long haul flights, local flights, trains, buses, taxis and tuktuk; I have collected a whole lot of travel hacks that I keep experimenting and improving each time I embark on a new adventure.

I have become an advocate of slow traveling, and I am trying to incorporate more and more sustainable habits during my journeys.

After all, I love and cherish this beauty of a planet we live in, and I wish to make you fall in love with it too!

Follow my journeys on instagram & polarsteps - and hope to see you soon :)
