Back after a looong break. 19.11.22
I'm originally from Tirana (Albania) but I grew up in (Trieste) Italy. I have also lived in Spain, Belgium and I spent relevant time in France and UK. So, multiculturality is my first feature.
After 7 years living in Brussels, I decided to relocate to Canary Islands for a while.
I love traveling around the world, not just to explore different cultures and countries but also to experience different ways of living/thinking and trying to be as close as possible to universal values.
My background includes musical studies, humanities, education, political sciences and international relations. But I think I spent more time and energy trying to understand the world around me and the human being. I have explored many disciplines like philosophy, anthropology, psychology, religion, physics, arts, neurosciences, etc. When I had enough about "official" knowledge, I started learning more about holistic disciplines and oriental philosophies/religions.
I love wild nature, animals, children, singing and dancing and every situation or people with positive vibe and full of life. I dance Argentinian tango and I practice Yoga and meditation.
