JULIANA DE BRITO
Who am I?
Hi, my name is Juliana, and it’s nice to meet you!
I’m the blogger of Wonderful Marche and an independent communication & events specialist. Travel and tourism are my favorite areas to work.
I feel like a citizen of the world: I’m a mix of Brazil, China, and Portugal, but my heart is “marchigiano”.
I moved to Milan, Italy, in 2006 and some years ago I left a carrier as PR manager in a multinational company to live with my family in Le Marche. It was a life choice!
Why did I choose to live in Le Marche?
We didn’t have parents or friends here. We imagined our ideal place to live in Italy and we decided to search for it for one year. Fortunately, we found it: Le Marche makes us happy!
Why do I write about Le Marche?
As you can imagine, the first reason is because I’m passionate about it.
Moreover, I think it could be useful for travelers to find an external point of view of this wonderful region. Often, when we’re a local, we’re so used to living the local life, that we perceive our own territory in a different way. Everything looks so normal for us.
For example, I’m from Rio de Janeiro, and I visited the “Christ the Redeemer” once in my life. Not because it’s not an incredible experience, but because I knew it was there…always. And if you go there now, you will find just tourists in line for this reason.
In Le Marche, one of the most beautiful things I’ve seem are the sunflower fields. Many local friends were surprised with my opinion… just because they were used to seeing it and this wonderful landscape was quite ordinary for them, even if they deeply love their territory. We’re all like that.
The influence of so many different cultures in my personal life helps me to see Le Marche with different eyes. My goal is for it to be useful for others as well.
- I only write about things in which I believe and love.
- I think, research and check the information using reliable sources to learn new things. I visit places, live local experiences, taste local food and wine and I ask advice and information from my local friends and people.
- I only promote things I trust myself and I’m always transparent about it.
Why do I write in English?
I write in English because I would like to share my experiences in Le Marche with foreign travelers.
Writing in English is an effort for me, as it’s not my mother tongue. I hope you will appreciate my efforts and find useful information here nonetheless.
I also speak Portuguese, Italian, and Spanish.
- Traveling around the world
- Meeting genuine people who inspire me with their spirit and happiness
- The beach at sunset, breeze in my hair, waves touching the coast.
- My family and my friends
- A good glass of wine and good food
What about you? I’d be happy to hear from you here! Have you ever been to Le Marche before?
