Welcome to my blog! 


My name is Agnese and I am originally from Galatina, a small town in the South of Italy very close to the sea.

After high school, I lived in Spain, Ireland, Austria and then Ireland again, where I stayed for a while and from where I travelled around Europe, until one day, in 2017, I decided to quit my job to go see other parts of the world. And this has definitely been the best experience of my life! 

Currently, I’m based in Dublin again, where I work for an environmental NGO. I am passionate about dance and circus and I spend most of my spare time training in these disciplines, but I also like going to flea markets, playing with my lovely dogs, drinking coffee and hiking.

What I look for when I travel is being as close as possible to nature and trying to really get to know a culture and talk to local people. My current mission is to explore ways of travelling in the most sustainable and environmental-friendly way possible.


While I was backpacking in South, Central and North America, I started collecting all my favourite pictures, stories, information I learnt and tips in a folder on my laptop that I called “Travel Notes”. Later, more and more friends (and friends of friends) started asking me for tips about places to visit or itineraries to follow, and so I decided to publish all my notes in this blog.

Moreover, Travel Notes us a way for me to talk about my two biggest passions: travels and sustainability, and all the possible connections between these two. This why, in this blog, there is a dedicated section to travelling sustainably and ways to be more eco-friendly.

I created Travel Notes to share my stories and pictures with other people, but, above all,  to try to keep the memories I make while travelling forever!
