Last day of the year, two friends  are coming from Sweden to celebrate the New Year’s Eve all together in the beautiful Rome! Whoohooo! But here is brrr-cold-brrr.  We will celebrate, no matter what.

We hope we will find a nice cafe-restaurant and going to see Rome in the most confusing and fascinating moment of the year. A lot of Christmas lights, a lot of people, chaos and beauty.

As usual   I will try to figure out, in the end, how was this 2014:

this last year it has been fast and amazing. I did many things, sometimes too many. I met a lot of new people, some of them are friends now, some are already gone.

It has not been a bad or good year, there have been happy moments, and bad too. I have been traveling and I working. I relaxed and I ran and ran and ran. But in the end I felt so alive! In the end, I worked to build my future. I tried to enjoy friends, family and my city and I want to  thanks all of them to be there with me, every time.
