Hi! My name is Chiara, I grew up in the land of good wine and peará. When I am not studying Law, I like to imagine myself in some remote place in the middle of Nature. I don't have a great sense of direction, so I often get lost, but most of the time I find wonderful alternative routes. I love to travel because I like to discover familiar places and faces. Why not searching them while taking care of the environment? It's worth it, I guarantee it.
