Welcome to my Travel Diary
Dear wanderer, my name is Anita. Welcome to my expat and travel diary.
Actually based in French Guiana, I regularly escape in the amazonian rain forest that surrounds us, or enjoy the cultural activities that French Guiana offers. I’m a travel lover, so you’ll also find my travel experiences from all around the globe (35 countries visited and 4 continents explored).
And last but not least you can find my hotels reviews.
…Enjoy the read !
Want to know more about me? Here is my story
I was born in Massa, a city between the mountains and the sea in the lovely Tuscany. Since my early years I’ve been educated to embrace diversity, stimulate my curiosity and being independent. These qualities shaped my personality and by the age I obtained my high school diploma, I knew I wanted to explore the world, to be a global citizen.
London was my first stop. For two months I breathed and lived in this extraordinary city that has so much too offer. But my fate wasn’t to settle there and I moved home again. After a short travel to Ukraine, I’ve found myself again on a plane, this time to cross the Atlantic ocean and land in French Guiana.
This wild region of France stole my hearth, that’s why today (after 9 years!) I still live there with my husband, our son, two dogs and a cat. Since 2016 I work at the Guiana Space Centre. Today I’m a planning manager of the ground segment for the electric, air conditioning and optical systems.
