Italo Nguyen

We had a friend. His name was Italo. Italo is no longer our friend. Italo hates us. I don’t remember which one is his real name to be honest, maybe Alessandro or Antonio. I don’t know. He called himself Italo Nguyen on Facebook, as he was an Italian guy travelling in Vietnam (Nguyen is the most common vietnamese surname). We…

Sweet potato. Vietnam begins.

After 3 weeks riding all over Cambodia I had to drop my plan to go to Laos as the border is apparently closed. To do that I should’ve done a little detour through central Vietnam mountains, which would have taken me at least a couple of days. So better to change a bit the itinerary doing Cambodia-Vietnam-Laos. Under a fairly…

I just wanted to buy a sim card…

“Excuse me, where can I buy…”“A motorbike!?”“A sim card”“A motorbike!?”“I mean, yeah… maybe I’ll get a motorbike as well at some point, but I need a sim card now”“Ok, my friend have motorbike”“Oh fuck…I give up…what motorbike?”“He be here in 5 minutes!

Photography Course…for free

“Hey new girl, who are you?” “Chantelle” “Chantelle is your name…I’ve asked who you are.” The girl quite intimidated by this strange individual bows her head looking straight at her breakfast without saying a word. The guy starts to laugh and so do I with him. I like him, he’s an Australian DJ and surfer, in his forties, with long…

Digital Nomad in Canggu

After 3 weeks in Sri Lanka, I flew to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Where I stayed only for few days as the weather was not the best, pouring rain every afternoon, all afternoon. After all I knew that. I did my research before leaving and wrote everything in a spreadsheet called When to visit, you can have a look at it…

The trip begins

So eventually I decided to leave. 6-7 months of travel. That’s the maximum I’m a allowed not to break my continuous residency in the UK, permitted that in this period I would continue to work and produce invoices. I spoke with an immigration lawyer before leaving and that should be fine. To start I went for about 3 weeks to…

Should I stay or should I go?

I decided, I’m going to travel for at least 6-7 months in Asia. I’ll be working remotely as freelancer from exotic locations. If things work out I can even stay longer, like a year or who knows. I want to be free. Why not? After all the only things I need are my laptop and an internet connection. I found…

2016. A year designing and travelling

My 2016 has been characterised by the focus on my freelance activity. During the first months I’ve been updating my personal brand. While from July, I started working properly as freelancer. At the same time, after more than a year stuck between university and full-time job, I took advantage of the new freedom to travel a bit around. JANUARY: The…

Facial Recognition App works out identities with 70% reliability

About a year ago I realised a speculative design project on face recognition, which might change people relationship and ways to interact. Well that’s no longer speculative design, it exist and it was predictable. Surely it might be seen as something creepy, but as the FindFace (that’s the name of the app) co-founder Kabakov says we can’t stop technological progress,…
