May I welcome you on my blog!
For those who are wondering: no crime was commited when my parents recorded me on the civil registry, because Surply is not my real name.
Surply is just a giggly nickname my father gave me when I was a child. It was something funny to pronounce and since I was pretty freaky in my childhood years, it particularly fitted me. That’s all about it.
Talking about the person behind the bizzarre nickname, my name is Valeria, I was born in the Halloween night of 1996 and I my passport agrees with identifying me as an Italian.
Even though I like to call myself a citizen of the world, I can’t deny my recognition of being an Italian creature. To me it’s not about citizenship, it’s about a way to live and approach to life: I have travelled quite a lot around the world, I have interacted with tens of cultures and immersed myself in different lifestyles; I have learnt 5 languages and I was taught their mental process and way of thinking, but my Italian soul is still predominant and I can’t possibly conceal it.
This is the main reason why I decided to open this blog: I wanted to combine my love for travels and my culture to create a personal space on the web where I could share through writing and a dollop of irony my experiences around the world.
I hope you enjoy your stay here and I wish you a nice day, web voyager!
