My name is Elena and I was born in Udine, in 1991. I work as a Marketing Specialist but my dream is to live as a writer. I dream of a world where everyone says Mandi and where frico is as famous as pizza.
Nothing makes me feel better than hiking and being surrounded by woods and nature. Fortunately, Friuli Venezia Giulia still preserves wild and uncontaminated places. That's where I like to wander and that's where I'll take you with my blog.
I love books and I love to talk about books. Books have been my best friends for a long time and I don't regret it one bit. Books can change us for the better, they can inspire us and change the way we see the world. Discover this hut's bookshelf.
Sometimes, writing is the best medicine. I write to become a better person, the person I don't have the courage to be. I've never been into short stories, but sometimes the urge to write is just too strong. Here you can read some of my short stories.
I created The Writer’s Mountain Hut to achieve, at least virtually, my dream of owning a cabin in the mountains. I still don’t know where I would place my virtual cabin, but I know what I would fill it with.
Lots of books, a fireplace, cats, good food, a record player and vinyl, some frivolous chat, and some discussion on life’s meaning drinking grappa.
Outside the window, there’s my beloved Friuli Venezia Giulia who, I’m sure, will make you fall in love too.
