Join me on my journey to learn languages, eat amazing food and travel the world…

Hello! Ciao! Bonjour!

Sam’s the name and language learning is my game.

For me, there’s nothing better than pouring over a good book, watching a film or playing video games in the languages I am learning, and I want to show you how easy, fun and rewarding it can be.

I’m an avid traveller and love sharing my adventures with you… the locations, the stories, and most importantly, the food!

  • 🇬🇧 I don't often go out late at night (because I am an old man already) but when I do I remember how nice it is to live in the countryside. On a clear night you can see all the stars and the full moon in the distance (not in the picture because it was too bright to photograph).
Maybe I need to become a night owl 🦉. What do you think?
.
🇮🇹 Non vado fuori alla notte spesso (perché sono un uomo vecchio già) però quando vado mi ricordo come bello è per vivere nella compagnia. A una notte chiara si può vedere tutte le stelle e la luna piena nella distanza (non la è nella foto perché era troppo Luminosa per fotografare).
Forse ho bisogno di diventare un nottambulo 🦉. Che cosa ne pensi?

  • 🇬🇧 After a successful early morning trip to the grocers I now have a fridge full of lovely fresh local fruit. Strawberries, pears and grapes. The grapes are my personal favourite snack.
What's your favourite choice at the grocers? .
🇮🇹 Dopo una gita mattutina al droghiere adesso ho un frigorifero pieno della frutta fresca e locale. Le fragole, le pere e l'uva. L'uva è il mio preferito spuntino.
Quale è la tua preferita scelta al droghiere?

  • 🇬🇧Yesterday we finally booked the hotels for our honeymoon. It only took 4 hours!!! 🤯🤯
To celebrate I decided to decipher and translate some articles from La Republica. A big challenge but very rewarding. I had to ask for a lot of help but I got there in the end. And now I continue!
How was your weekend?

Come è stato il tuo weekend?

It's so nice to see progress, isn't it?
