My name is Hellen Akinsiku. I am from Nigeria and I’ve been living in Italy for 4 years and counting.

I briefly lived in Palermo, Sicily – the southern part of Italy – for 7 months. Over there, I experienced the delicious Southern Italian cuisines and beaches.

I have also lived in Turin, Bologna, and I’m currently living in Padova.

If you are an ardent follower of my blog and social media pages, you can tell of how much I greatly enjoyed my time in Sicily as I still whine and compare the city to Milan and other cities I’ve lived in.

My blog was started out of my inherent passion for writing and sharing my experiences. I also had one back while I was in Nigeria.

I have a Masters Degree in Corporate Communication from the University of Milan, and I’m currently undergoing a Global MBA programme in Food and Wine.

So yes, expect some interesting wine and food pairing recommendations on the blog soonest!

I have been featured in international travel Magazines like Localeur, Spotted by Locals and local newspapers like Il Fatto Quotidano.

Do subscribe to my newsletter and follow me on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter to stay up to date on useful tips for living in Italy.

Thanks for stopping by.
