Friends help you discover new places 

Once I was traveling through Andalusia, I was in Seville and I was staying at some of my Erasmus friend’s place.
Obviously when you have friends welcoming you and sharing their time with you it is easier to discover and enjoy in the best way a city. I remember about all the nice places, the typical restaurants and the music coming from all over around. I remember about an “unconventional” (let me use this term) pub that was hidden from the sight, where we spent amazing nights meeting very kooky people.

The real experience begins exploring

After few days in Seville with my friend Filippo, we decided to move to Cordoba, and we did not know anyone over there.
We spent our first day walking around and visiting all the touristic attractions like “la mezquita”. It was amazing and the food was really tasty in every corner, but something was missing.
We decided to set up our minds and we started to walk around randomly, with no destination and no plan.
Anyone that has been at least once in Cordoba knows perfectly how much it is easy to loose someone self in its arabic streets. You cannot see the end the end of them and you feel like you are in a giant labyrinth.

We were lost. Hungry. But faithful

Travel is a matter of people

We knew something amazing was about to happen. We heard some good music coming from not so far from where we were, we followed the sound. After a while we came across a special place that we did not know and we would have remember for the rest of our lives.

A group of people was eating and dancing in a private house. They invited us to enter and enjoy the dinner with them.

Here, there was a bar and working in there there was a girl. Her name was Eleonora.

This fantastic young woman was from Rome and she was spending her Erasmus in Cordoba, and she became our guide in that city’s labyrinth.

We shared amazing days and experiences together.

She is an amazing photographer and through her eyes she has been depicting me imagines and pictures that I am sure I will make treasures forever.

Filippo, Eleonora and I were dotters for causality, and it has been great.

Being a dotter

Being a dotter means exactly this: it means to be full of friends ready to welcome you in every corner of Europe.

It means being part of a big story: a story that you will keep on writing and enriching.


Let the dotter’s spirit be with you everywhere in the world, whether it is bright of magic or dark of mystery.

In the wild jungles, full of nature, and in the jungles of the mind that are full of inventiveness.

Just pack yourself up !

It is not a matter of setting limits and overcoming them, it is a matter of friends.

It is about living and cherishing every single moment.
