An announcement about the restart of the football league, a Sunday brunch with an avocado toast, a coconut milkshake with strawberry & cream and steamed ice cream!

What are you talking about?

You should be asking.

I am telling you only few of the things I see in my Instagram stories feed, every day.

Enjoyable moments, food experiences, travelling vibes or raising awareness campaigns for a cause, these are all expressions of people’s feelings on social media.

And they are real, authentic, unique to their likes or dislikes.

Instagram stories exist since August 2016 and have countless features and functions, making it one of the most effective forms of both organic and paid media. …


Here’s what. If you’re making a dollar, you’re doing something good.

Ask yourself two questions:

What works?

What doesn’t work?

The power of choosing your final outcome

It’s like a thriller movie. Or at least like an actor that is put in a position where he’s evolved in a series of events till he finds a solution.

Let’s say this actor is you (and let’s say me as well, because I enjoy thrillers : ) )

When all the pieces starting to form a puzzle, what’s going to look different to you?

Wherever the effect it will have, you’ve got your story. I’ve got mine.

And you now what? …

Your face can make money.

People love when they see someone they know in a video on social media, it creates that mystical relation with the person and it generates curiosity and engagement.

You might think it’s hard to get it right with the right content or you need some kind of preparation to be in front of the camera and be able to express yourself.

Every time is different but there are some techniques which might make the process smoother and easier for you.

Tip #1 — Start with a Great Opener

Imagine you’re walking through a car dealership that is daily visited by dozens of people. You notice a car out of the corner of your eye inside the place. You walk past it, stop, do a double-take, and then walk back toward it and check it out. …

Normally at this time of the year, my mind is usually turning to summer vibes, dreaming in being relaxed on a beach and enjoying a well deserved vacation.

But it feels completely awkward to think in leaving the state of isolation and go to another place and still being alert….

Well, pandemics have these things. They don’t leave you indifferent.

What I can say for sure is that, after living the last months in uncertainty, confusion and despair, I realise that I need a holiday break.

But to actually make a holiday possible and achievable, my instinct tells me that I won’t be going to any destination, stay at any hotel and do my holidays like I would do last year. …

Trust the Wait. Embrace the uncertainty. Enjoy the beauty of becoming. When nothing is certain, anything is possible. Mandy Hale

I would say it’s easier said than done 😊

But the truth lies there. When we can’t really influence how things are going in our lives, then there is a trend to be confused, irritated and maybe fed up with everything.

It becomes hard to accept the scenario we’re living and not able to do the things that we need to do for our emotional stability and even for our survival.

In these circumstances we tend to see the world in our own eyes and avoid to work it out how to rebuild trust in the system, in life and even in ourselves. …

It’s incredible how some countries are restarting their activities in baby steps and others still seeing the curve going to peaks which we would never expect.

Is this delusional? Is the coronavirus reacting differently in each country? Are people reacting differently? What is driving to stop the virus to spread? What are the factors making more people sick?

The thing is no one can really absorb everything that is going on right now in each country specifically to make a standardised action plan at a global level, but there are some best practises which lead to some countries to re initiate their day to day activities and rebuild trust by lifting some of the restrictions. …

For the ones not very familiar with Ramadan, it’s the 9th month of the Islamic calendar where Muslims around the globe don’t eat or drink and abstain from worldly pleasures during the hours of daylight. This is called fasting . Children are not expected to fast until they reach puberty, usually around the age of 12.

Ramadan remembers the month the Qur’an (the Muslim holy book) was first revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings upon him). …

In uncertain times like these, health safety and economic stability are 2 life aspects that never been so connected.

But is it too early to talk about what to do when things start to look better? After all, many countries are just starting to introduce more stringent physical distancing measures as COVID-19 crosses their borders.

Well, since I was born I have never seen entire countries being converted in ghost destinations, people fearing for their lives in every country on earth, social distancing taken care so seriously and a pandemic that hit entire multi billion dollar industries. …


Planning your holidays on a postcoronavirus era will require a bit more effort, in my opinion. This because the world is in constant adjustment due to the virus outbreak. Nevertheless, as avid travellers that we all are, I believe that we will also adjust to the new times, because travel is our passion and that won’t change so easily

One thing is for sure, the queues at the immigration will be longer than before. …
