Welcome to Serentravelty!

I’m Sira, I’m an Italian travel addict from Rome, and I’m the founder of this website about travel and local tips for expats.

A Little Bit About Me

Me in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote

My love for visiting new places started when I was just 15, when I traveled to St. Raphael, France to improve my French. That was my first experience abroad without my family – I was with an international school and it was one of the best experiences in my life.

I think it was the first time in my life I really stepped out of my comfort zone, and from that year, I never looked back. Every year I’d pick a new destination and I’d travel to a new place to learn new languages – or to improve the ones I could already speak.

I’ve traveled to many countries, including Spain and Italy – which are the ones I know best since I lived in both for decades. Other countries I’ve visited and explored are:

  • United States
  • Canada
  • Germany
  • Netherlands
  • France
  • Malta
  • Portugal
  • Morocco
  • Austria
  • Switzerland
  • UK
  • Ireland
  • Mexico

I’m talking a lot about myself here…but it’s important to mention that I’m not alone! There’s a team of other travel addicts and local experts like me who help me with the content you can find on this website.
