First post: welcome to my brand new travel blog

Riccardo Mazzolo aka Solo Around

Welcome to SoloAround travel blog’s first post.

First of all, thank you very much for coming to my website. It’s a pleasure for me to welcome you in my virtual home.

If you are here you probably already know something about me; if not, let me introduce myself.

About the author

Riccardo Mazzolo AKA SoloAround
Riccardo Mazzolo AKA SoloAround

My name is Riccardo Mazzolo and I am 28 years old.
I’m an Italian guy that lives in the North East of Italy.
Talking about job titles, I am an IT expert and I’ve worked in this sector for almost 10 years.

I always loved tech stuff and web related things: my first own website was online when I was 10 🙂

Just after my high school I started working and I was very happy about that, because in that way I had the opportunity to save money for my travels. Since that time I’ve travelled often, making almost 40 trips in 8 years.

In May 2017 I had the opportunity to quit my job and since that day I’ve started to plan my lifetime dream: become a professional traveller.

In order to do this, I’ve put together this travel blog and after that I’ve designed my new goal as the first project in the editorial line: discover my Country on the wheels of my bicycle during a 40 days journey across 14 regions.

A brand new travel project

This travel plan is named BIT • Biking Italy Tour; it’s starting in September 2017 and it will make me ride my bike for 2400 kilometers.

BIT – Biking Italy Tour

In these days I’m working hard in order to get the website ready to host my articles with photos and videos from the Italian peninsula. But I’m hopefully training harder to get the right physical condition and ride safe without any kind of problem for the whole itinerary.

As I mentioned before, in my whole life I’ve travelled a lot, but I never thought about how tricky could be a one month planning for a trip that has to be published with a high level of content making. It’s really challenging over here and I never felt so good before.

So, I hope that this first post of my brand new travel blog was good for you.
Maybe it has even inspired you to

  • plan a new holiday
  • make a long bicycle ride
  • take a trip to Italy
  • or even start your own brand new travel blog

Life is a long journey but, hey, always take your time to do what makes you feel really alive!

Come back soon to read my stories 😉
