Weird facts about me :,)

Enlightened ?

Hello everybody! みなさまようこそ! Herzlich Willkommen! Bienvenus chez mon blog! Benvenuti a tutti ?

First of all, let me state clearly that I am a human: two legs, two arms, brown hair etc (yep, everything is at its place) and then, I am Federica from the corrupted and mainly-famous-for-pasta-and-mafia country, otherwise known as Italy. I am a temple geek, I totally love temples, every kind: from Buddhist, to Taoist, to Shinto ones ? Other thing I am fixated on are anime (my God, I watched so many that I lost the count), pasta (of course, I am italian), ramen ? and travelling. You can even figure out on your own this passion of mine from the main theme of my blog. I am really interested in travelling and discovering the world, I can say, it is my greatest passion and I try to persue it, everytime I am not busy with studying or attending some lessons at university….ah! yeah…in my freetime, I am also an unlucky university student in Siena, whose degree is about linguistic and cultural mediation stuff. In my articles, I will illustrate my clumsy adventures around the globe, the way I see the world but also tips about reaching places or what to see, do, eat and, sometimes, even explanations regarding cultural aspects of that country 😉 I hope you all will enjoy my blog 😀

Why La Dépaysée? The adjective comes from the French noun “dépaysement“:


Ever go on holiday, only to experience a strange sensation of disorientation at the change of scenery? Dépaysement is a French word which refers to that feeling of disorientation that specifically arises when you are not in your home country.

      1. Thank you for your kind words. Well I’m stuck in Dubai right now. My Emirates connecting flight to Brisbane was supposed to leave at 2:45am this morning, in the end the plane was grounded and we were shuttled to a hotel at 7:30am. Flight postponed to 3pm now – another blog to follow! 🙁

        1. Oh my God really??! With emirates?! It is the only airline I have tried so far and with me everything was fine ? it is horrible when you have this bad adventures with such long flights, it makes you confuse as u have to pass much time inside the plane and because of the jet lag! I really hope you will not be forced to experience such bad adventures but after all they are still adventures ? one day u will tell to someone who will listen amazed ahaha like my bad experience on the plane that was shaking so much that the flight attendant fell down ahaha

        No ma dai sei stata a KOLDING?! incredibile! Comunque davvero sono fantastiche le tue foto e i tuoi post sul Giappone mi hanno fatto venire gli occhi a cuore, è una delle mie mete top nella mia bucket list! 🙂

        1. sono stata anche a Padova 😀 ho visitato la capella degli scrovegni, molto bella <3 sii veramente strano perchè non credo che molti abbiano visitato questo posto xD Ho fatto un programma di scambio con la Danimarca e vivevo in questo paesino vicino a Kolding :,) siii il giappone è troppo bello, se hai la possiblità vacci! io ci torno a dicembre. Se cerchi bene, trovi anche molte offerte con compagni come emirates 😉 Kyoto e Tokyo sono dei MUST :3

  2. Hi Fede: I’m so happy and honor you nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award, that means you like my blog, and to me that’s already an award. After all we write for others to enjoy it. Thanks again and I will be more than happy to accept the nomination and answer any questions. Keep in touch 🙂

    1. I am glad u appreciated my nomination ? I think that we do need awards like this since they reward our work on the blog and at the same time it also advertises less known but beautiful blog ? I look forward to your post then 😀

  3. Hi Fede,
    Thanks for letting me discover your blog! Your “weird facts” page is very cool: I was smiling the whole time. Btw, I also LOVE ramen. I love noodles in general hehe.
