• Semplicemente… donna

    Sara Luna e Claudine
  • me and my girl :-)
  • Mi sento unicamente una "Cittadina del Mondo"
    figlia, madre, amica, compagna, donna...
    Ho viaggiato lungo rotte conosciute ed altre ignote, per lavoro ma anche per curiosità o solo per il desiderio di scoprire nuovi luoghi!
    L'esperienza a contatto con altri popoli, religioni e culture, mi ha insegnato a venerare Madre Natura ed ogni forma di vita che ci conduce a valutare precetti inconfutabili, ma che purtroppo troppi ignorano nel più assoluto egoismo.
    Vi apro le porte del mio mondo virtuale... seguitemi lungo l'itinerante scorrer d'acqua lasciando traccia di vissuto.

  • What to say about Claudine? She is passionate about living a present, balanced and authentic life, with a healthy dose of humor! She loves to travel the world, explore new places, people and food, but equally loves to retreat into silent solitude. She is a writer who follows a hidden path, into an unfamiliar world. If you just surrender and go with her on her eerie journey, you will find that you have surrendered to enchantment, as if in a voluptuous and fantastic dream. She makes you believe everything she sees in her fantasy and dreams. But as well you take a journey to the frozen mountain peaks of the north of Europe, to the crowded sweating streets of Mexico or Africa. Her characters are wonderfully real and wholly believable perfectly situated in her richly textured prose. She’s a lovely person and she writes with exquisite powers of description! She’s simply great! R. McKelley

    Chi è Claudine? Lei è appassionata nel vivere al presente una vita equilibrata e autentica, con una sana dose di humour! Ama viaggiare per il mondo, esplorare nuovi luoghi, persone e cibo, ma ugualmente ama ritirarsi in solitudine, nel silenzio. E' una scrittrice che segue un sentiero nascosto, verso un mondo sconosciuto. Se solo vi arrendete e andate con lei in questa spettacolare avventura, realizzerete che vi siete confidati all’incantevole, come in un sogno fantastico ed avvolgente. Vi farà credere ad ogni cosa che lei vede nei suoi stessi sogni e fantasie. Ma inizierete anche un viaggio verso le cime ghiacciate del nord Europa, verso le strade affollate del Messico o Africa. I protagonisti sono magnificamente reali e totalmente credibili stupendamente inseriti nella ricca trama di prosa. E’ una “grande” persona e scrive con uno squisito potere descrittivo. E’ semplicemente magnifica.

Sri Lanka: a leap into the ancient history

The intense desire to travel and do some good deed, does not leave me and from this Sinhalese’s adventure we learned something new.

L’intenso desiderio di viaggiare e di fare una buona azione, non mi abbandona…  e dall’avventura cingalese abbiamo imparato qualcosa di nuovo.

more pictures and the whole reportage  *  leggete la storia e guardate le foto

  1. Claudine, what a wonderful glimpse into your family’s recent adventures! From animal retreats, to a school visit (?), tea fields, and colorful cultural sites, it looks as though you had a rewarding and busy trip. I cannot wait to see (and hear) more from Sri Lanka. Hugs from both of us.

    • It was a great experience, dear Tricia… especially the visit to the orphanage has affected me a lot: how can you give up a child in the desperation of not being able to look after her?
      Without specifying that I cried too much seeing all those poor dogs (strays and with owners) in terrible heath conditions… Hugs and kisses from all of us! :-)c

    • Aku baik-baik, terima kasih!
      Ini, Sri Lanka sangat bagus … tapi aku sedih untuk sebanyak anjing liar diperlakukan. (hope I wrote it right, with the help of Google translator!)
      Serenity to you, Ramliong :-)c

      • Ia, mungkin mereka tidak suka hewan. apakah anda masih di srilangka? maaf saya tidak menggunakan bahasa Inggris, bahasaku sangat jelek. Apakan ini putra sulung anda? https://claudinegiovannoni.files.wordpress.com/2013/08/p1070307.jpg?w=600

      • Indonesia adalah bahasa, tapi itu tidak buruk.
        Saya mengunjungi Indonesia selama dua bulan, bertahun-tahun lalu.
        Ya, dia adalah Yosua dan Emmanuel berusia 17 tahun, adalah seorang pianis yang baik.
        Kami adalah umat Buddha dan kami mencintai binatang begitu banyak.
        Saya berharap Anda a nice day :-)c

      • wooww…serang pianis, itu adalah hobi yang tidak biasa. Kapan anda ke Indonesia lagi? Saya mempunyai foto-foto tentang leluhur kami, semoga anda senang…

        Dirumah Saya memiliki beberapa hewan peluharaan seperti Kucing Dan Burung, mereka semua berpasangan. Saya sangat senang, anda bisa berbagi.

      • Saya mengunjungi Borobudur dan Prambanan, mengesankan!
        Tapi aku mencintai Dieng Plateau … di sana saya menemukan diri saya sangat baik dan saya senang!
        Jika kita akan datang ke Jawa, saya pasti memberitahu.
        Terima kasih untuk berbagi,
        melihat Anda segera! 🙂 claudine

      • Jadi, jika anda akan ke Jawa harus menambah satu rute ke arah timur yaitu Situbondo, Jawa timur, Itu desa saya, tempat saya tinggal.

        Saya akan menunggu kabar dari anda.
        Dieng Plateau benar sangat mengesankan.

  3. Adoro i blog di viaggi, letture, scritture… che bella scoperta. Le foto, poi, restituiscono l’intensità delle tue parole.

  4. Oh goodness me, what a fascinating place, I was riveted by all your pictures. I loved the shrines and the archaeology and enjoyed seeing all the monkeys, they remind me of the ones we have just seen in Bali.
    How sad to hear of the poor dogs and the deer, wherever we go we unfortunately we see the negatives along with the positives, but it’s still hard to see. I’m glad you had such a memorable experience. Thanks you SO much for your postcard, it was such a lovely surprise to receive it. You are a sweetheart.xxxxxx
