Let's grab a virtual coffee

and i'll tell you about me

My name is Antonella Machet. I am an italian journalist and a content creator for websites and social media. I like to tell stories with words and to capture magic atmospheres with my camera. 

Born in 1984. I live with my husband in Turin, northern Italy, where I am still looking for my dream home. But I have a love nest, and it is in the Aosta Valley, the place where I was born.

I never liked to "be a tourist". When I travel I always look for small accomodation that make you feel at home. Looking for the most hidden streets, those with refined shops and restaurants frequented by locals. Vintage markets, to find pieces of the past and to bring home memories. Village markets, where you can discover local products. Artisan creations made by "modern makers". Each trip becomes part of me, a piece of my life, a small dream that turns into reality.

I couldn't live without dreaming. Although I am aware that happiness must be of the soul (I'm working on it!).
