Who is Clelia?
Hey! I’m so glad you stumbled upon this page to know a bit more about me. This website is entirely dedicated to YOU, but in order for you to trust my advice you need to know a bit more about my background, right? 🙂
As you can see from the title, my name is Clelia, nice to virtually meet you! I was born in Cagliari- Sardinia and lived with my family in Assemini, a town 20 minutes away from Cagliari and (lucky me) at 10 min drive from the main Sardinian Airport “Cagliari-Elmas”
My family was quite poor so we couldn’t afford any vacation, but I’m so grateful for that because we had the time to explore every corner of our beautiful Island. I know Sardinia very well and I love it to pieces. You should know that Sardinian people are very proud of their roots, and I’m no exception here!
my life before blogging
At 19 I left my island and moved to northern Italy to study at the University of Turin, then I found a job in Rome and, at age 30, I relocated to the UK to learn English.
After 8 months of living and working as an Au pair in a small village one hour away from London, I could finally speak properly and I got a permanent job as a Sourcing Coordinator at Burberry.
The Perfect Job, Right? Not quite!
I was very unhappy, and all I did was dreaming about traveling the world. One day I realized that life is too short to wait and during my summer break in Sardinia I decided that I would quit my job and save enough money to finally realize my dreams.
The 10 of February 2013 I was on a flight with no return ticket, headed to Thailand. In the meantime I opened a blog just for fun, Keep Calm And Travel, and after 7 years here I am, a full time blogger (with another website work in progress: Cleliamattana.com and still traveling the world. As you can see..everything is possible if you really want it 🙂
