We’re back! In this weeks Humans of Euroventure we caught up with Paolo, one of our Italian Trip Planners! Paolo is all the way from the sunny coastal city of Bari, way down in the south of Italy. Read ahead to find out about how he found Euroventure, What he does back home and his travels around the UK!
Hi! My name is Paolo, I’m 26 and I’m from a town called Terlizzi, near Bari in the south coast of Italy. I would recommend everyone visitS Bari – it’s a beautiful city, with amazing food and good weather!
Good question! I’m studying Financial banking at the University of Bari. My last university exam is on financial mathematics and it’s the hardest one in my course (?). I can’t wait to start the football preseason and finish my dissertation though!
I’m doing an internship in accounting and I’ve been learning a lot of new things that no book could really teach me. I work with Phil, who is literally a genius! He always has a solution for everything and has definitely broadened my horizons with his knowledge. I love it here – everyone in the office is kind and always ready to help with their different skills.
I’ve always been a curious guy- so I like reading online newspapers to get news from all over the world, and I love watching documentaries. Like most guys of my age, I also like going out or catching up with friends over good coffee. I also love being active so when I’m not training for football, I ride my bike or go on jogs!
I’ve always wanted to visit the UK because of its rich history, busy cities, and picturesque countryside. I think that everyone who lives abroad should visit the main cities of the country they are staying in and I’ve definitely tried to do that!
I’ve visited Birmingham, where I got free tickets for the Aston Villa v Norwich football match by messaging a Norwich player on Instagram asking if he wanted to make my dream of watching an English football match come true ? I’ve also been to Liverpool which I thought was a really vibrant city and was way more beautiful than I expected. I’ve also visited York, Manchester, Cardiff and Belfast where I went to the famous Giants Causeway.
Next on the list are Sheffield, London, Dublin (with my German colleague Freddie), Skipton with my friend Angelo who is coming to visit me, Newcastle and Edinburgh with my girlfriend. Fingers crossed I’ll get to visit Oxford too!
