  • Follow the models style for example it might help reading  fashion magazines like Vouge or imitating the way actors dress

If you follow fashion, will you be more popular in marticolar social group?

  • Yes, If I followed the fashion, I would be more popular on facebook for example

Why do people travel?

  • I don’t know why people love to travel,  but I could tell you why I love to travel. I travel to met people, to learn their mores and customs, their culture, to know new languages too.

What mores and customs did you learn in Spain?

  • In Spain I noticed a difference in the hours of lunch and dinner. People have lunch at 2.00 o’ clock in the afternoon and have dinner at 10.00 o’ clock in the evening, they say hello to others moving the head from right to left unlike italians.
  • In Catalugna an ancient tradition is that of the Castellers that are human castles. The castle is build starting by a base of a lot of people. Other persons go up this base, creating several levels to ending with a kid on the top.
  • Another tradition is that of “Running of the Bulls”, during Sanfermino’s Day the bulls are left loose to run in the streats while people try to avoid them.

Why do you like to learn new languages?

What do you need to do to travel safety?
  • Depends (on) how you travel. If tou travel by car, you’ll learn is important to fasten your seat belts, drive slowly and above all don’t drive when you are drunk.  If you travel by airplane you’ll need to bring with yourself your passport.

What mustn’t you do when you travel?

  • Follow unknown people only why seem interesting or nice. Don’t trust of anyone. Bring cash money just in case your bancomat doesn’t work. Bring your passport with you to garantee of being identified  in every times. If you are in a foreign country you must respect the laws of that country. For example, here in Italy you can walk with battles of alcoholic drinks in your hands without the danger to be arrested or have a fine, in Spain you can’t. This to avoid that people dirty the streets for vomiting.
If I travel low-cost, will I travel safely?
  • Yes, you will. Why not? The only difference is in the fact that you have to pay more attention to not spending more than you have brought with you.
Why do people always try to make more money?
  • If you have money, you can buy a lot of  things, you can  travel more often and for faraway places. Without considering you can study in famous and prestigious Hight School and University. For example if I had had much more money, I could have studied at Unviversity like Oxford  or Cambrige.

Why do people work?
  • The people work to gain money to buy food, clothes, to rent an house. Instead If I were rich,  I would work to have something to do during the day or make more money to travel
What obligations do you have to your job?
  • I have a flexible time entry, I can enter starting by eight o’clock until half past nine, but I don’t have to enter after half past nine because in this case I need to justify my late. Everytime I need to go to  the specilist doctor, I have to have a permission. Everytime I leave my work position I don’t have to leave my computer desktop not locked.
