Anna

Milan, Italy (Western Europe)

Anna was born in the very south of Italy and despite she's proud of her origins, she couldn't wait to be 18 to start discovering the world. She studied near Venice Public Relations and in France she graduated in International Humanitarian Law. Since then, she fell in love with journalism, especially with war journalism, reason why she's a completely untypical travel as for the choice of uncommon destinations. Traveling has always been her first passion, and she has been lucky enough to transform this passion in her job working previously for the travel search enigine Movolo and now as adviser at Triptrotting. Anna's favourite quote is: Travelers never think that they are the foreigners by Mason Cooley.
