Hello! I am Rossi.
I live in Vicenza, Northern Italy and I am originally from Varna on the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast. Prior to moving to Italy I also spent 14 years in England, so at present my mind is a mish-mash of trilateral cultural expectations and norms which I am only too happy to break.
I used to be a journalist, a translator (English, Spanish and Portuguese into Bulgarian), an editor and currently I am a stay-at-home mum. So, I write and take photographs to show you the beauty of this world and also to let you know what exactly makes me pleased and/or cross with it.
My blog Rossi Writes was started in November 2014 and currently has over 350 articles on several topics: from what to do and how to settle in Vicenza, in particular, and Italy, in general, to travel diaries and personal thoughts on a variety of themes – expat life, food, travelling with a baby/toddler, dealing with life as it is to name but a few.
Feel free to get in touch here or, if you want to work with me, please, scroll further down for some stats and other details.
I try to update my Facebook page and my blog almost every day, so read on and let me know what you think.
Best wishes 🙂
Work With Me
Rossi Writes is a storytelling travel and lifestyle blog in English with the focus on sharing personal experiences and viewpoints on living and travelling in Italy, England and Bulgaria (plus European travel).
A new article is posted on average every three days with a lot of care taken to provide well-researched and evocative copy combined with inspiring photography. The blog’s readership is mainly Italy-, US- and UK-based and comprises generally English-speaking people either already living in Italy or planning to move to or travel around the country and Europe.
I am always happy to explore blogging opportunities related to cultural travel, travelling with kids and one-of-a-kind experiences in either Italy, UK, Bulgaria or across the world. So, I am looking to connect with:
- brands with a story to tell;
- artisans and craftspeople;
- small/independent producers;
- interesting people; and
- other bloggers.
For example, currently I would love to hear from:
- artisan gelato makers;
- artisan food companies;
- museums and cultural organisations;
- antique shops/dealers;
- and anyone who has a passion, a hobby and/or a story to share with the world.
So, please, get in touch here.
I have experience collaborating with travel and tourist organisations and operators and my writing style is objective, original and engaging.
Here is a sample list:
- A series of four blog posts following a collaboration with Turismo Torino – the Tourist Office of the city of Turin in Italy: Taking in Turin, Exploring Turin: Palazzo Madama, Exploring Turin with a toddler, My Turin highlights
