As a non-Christian, Christmas didn't have much of a meaning to me but this time I decided to have it the local way. Turns out it was quite a memorable experience.
Couch-surfing in Turin
At least half of my time in Turin revolved around the girls. I followed them to supermarket, chatted with them during breakfasts, stayed longer after dinners for a drink or two, and walked with them to school in the morning.
Egyptian museum, Italy’s national treasure
Egyptian museum is a must-visit when you come to Turin. Spending half of my second day there, I can’t stress enough how comprehensive and mind-blowing it was. And if I ever return to this town, the museum would still be on top of my list.
Turin – where the adventures begin
Turin is best known as the former capital of united Italy and also the birthplace of its first King Vittorio Emanuel II. But one can learn that by staying at home and reading guidebooks. We all travel to learn something new. For this reason I decided to go slow to get the essence of each place I visit, and try to stay, or at least meet up and talk with locals as much as I can. Couch-surfing is one of the best ways of doing so.
