About me



My name is Vanessa Marenco. I was born in 1980 and Turin has been my home for a few years.

I travel as much as possible: at times, I cross the world; others, I jump on my bike to discover a new part of my city I don’t know yet.

This website is my treasure box, from which I can pick moments and places that have come to hold a special place in my heart, along the Journey.

I have written two travel books, so far.  The first collection of travelling stories (Racconti d’Irlanda) was published by Polaris Editore in 2016 and talk about my 8 years in Ireland, a country I love and always will.

The second book (“L’atlante dell’insolito. Un viaggio tra i luoghi del divenire”) deals with the fragility of our planet and describes places that are changing or disappearing and which, though beautiful, are often left outside the common routes. It was published in August 2019, by Alpine Studio.

I also write travelling articles for e-magazine, Latitudes Life.

You can follow my travels on Instagram and Facebook – my nickname is Skandorina!

To travel is to live twice.
