The word “attraversiamo” became famous after Elisabeth Gilbert’s “Eat, Pray, Love” was published. The meaning? Let’s cross over.
Besides loving how it sounds (as Julia Roberts shares in the movie version of “Eat, Pray, Love”), I love the sentiment behind it. Let’s cross over can be taken very literally. Let’s cross the street, country, ocean, world. More importantly, let’s cross over from our fears, pre-conceived notions, the unfamiliar. Let’s grow and experience something new.
This blog is dedicated to my travels, most of which are with my husband. To crossing over – whether it’s trying a new restaurant in my hometown of Toronto, or exploring a new city across the world. Hope you enjoy it!
