I am currently living in Amsterdam, Netherlands, where I ride my bike and work as a freelance writer.

I spent some time in Italy for the holiday and came back by bus. It was a long ride, but I saved a flight.

This month I am working on a series of Central Asia-related articles for Matador Network and on a number of copywriting projects that are far from worth reading.

I am recording the new episodes of Cemento, a travel podcast I am running with Eleonora Sacco from Pain de Route. This month we are talking about Soviet Champagne and crazy Central Asian dictators. I am researching the concept of "New East" for a university paper as well.

I had finalized a group tour in Iran for summer 2020, but given the current situation, it's probably not gonna happen. I am looking into alternatives, probably Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, and Tajikistan. Feel free to get in touch if you are interested in joining.

I'm reading Violence by Slavoj Žižek. I just finished A Horse Walks into a Bar by David Grossman, great book.
