Autumn is the season when most people think to travel: with nostalgia for those of the summer just passed, and with a certain pleasure to those to make preparation for the extra long week-ends that will be or the Christmas holidays. The ideal time, then, to read the advices of an expert as Lucrezia Argentiero that for three years, with the inseparable friend Isa Grassano, on the site “Amiche si parte!?” suggests tailored routes for those who want to live the journey without problems reserving her attention especially to women.

For all, however, the reading of her first book “Around the World in 80 islands”, Iter Edizioni, in which she tells of the fascination that the shards of land surrounded by the sea has always exert on humans. Perhaps because “life is an island in an ocean of loneliness” like writes Kahlil Gibran. Lucrezia has chose 80 islands: those to reach at least once in the life, very very distant and like a dream, to those in which we return again and again. And every time there is no shortage of charming, reserving next to the marvels of all time, new discoveries.

The author recommends to dock at Ischia for its miraculous thermal waters but also for its beautiful beaches and the medieval charm of the Aragonese Castle. She tells us his emotions in Reign of Fire of Eolie: Stromboli, Lipari, Vulcano, Salina, Panarea, Filicudi and Alicudi, enchanting reefs for colors, sea and fragrances. Staying on the subject Pantelleria, land of Moscato, the dammusi and lava beaches. And then the Elba, where the protagonists are the wild headlands, the long sandy beaches and the craggy shores of plastic granite. From here the course then touches the other islands of the Tuscan Archipelago, Montecristo, Pianosa, Capraia, Gorgona, Giglio and Giannutri. She could not miss the landing in Capri, the island of Tiberius that after centuries is as tempting with its coves and caves, but also with its “movida”. But after all these dips in the sea Italian Lucrezia was bound for the rest of the world to join us on a journey that reflects what in the tourist imaginary evokes the word island: the charm of exotic destinations, Greece, the Caribbean, the ocean atoll . So we smell the sweet scents of Djerba, Antigua, Zanzibar, Mauritius, Seychelles, not to mention navigating between the islands of northern Europe, with a special charm bring on the wind and drawn by the ice.
And Lucrezia does not forget its origins, apulian of Ceglie Messapica and Bolognese of adoption, sailing for Tremiti, the favorite islands by Lucio Dalla that in those landscapes found inspiration for his best songs.
