Andiamo, dai: 8 traslochi in giro per il mondo

Author: Annamaria Imberti

Language: Italian

Summary: Si parte così, in due, pensando che sia per un breve periodo di lavoro in Asia, e poi non ci si ferma più. Si finisce col traslocare otto volte in dodici anni attraverso tre continenti, dall’Italia alla Tailandia, poi Panama, Stati Uniti, Svizzera e Giappone. Con due bimbetti multilingue e giramondo, che a tutt’oggi non saprebbero proprio dire esattamente da dove vengano. Questa è la vera storia di una famiglia in giro per il mondo, dell’amore che li ha tenuti uniti, e del senso dell’umorismo che ha fatto tutto il resto. La storia di come il vero viaggio inizi là dove finiscono le certezze. Ovunque nel mondo hanno ricostruito la loro tribù, contando su persone sparse per il mondo come loro, con la stessa abitudine a sentirsi fuori luogo e la libertà un po’ infantile che ne deriva. – Source: Amazon.it
