I am passionate about travel and tourism. I believe that our lifestyle has truly modified the way we travel and visit places, making lines blurrier between travelling, visiting, being a local and a being a tourist. I want to keep exploring these great travel opportunities and report back on them to a wider audience, beyond the more 'classic', academic research I usually conduct. Here's what I have been up to.
I write articles about Swiss tourism and lifestyle for the online magazine Newly Swissed. Check out my articles by clicking here.
Dear Railway (Sept 2017-): In September I launched my own podcast channel, Dear Railway, which focuses on some aspects of railway travel, with one big mission in mind: to make train travel attractive again.
BBC Breakfast, 25 September 2017: I was invited onto the legendary BBC Breakfast sofa to talk about the decline of postcards and the history of tourism in general.
BBC Radio, 25 September 2017: I gave three interviews on the decline of postcards and the history of tourism.

I contribute to major digital platforms to spread knowledge online: I am a regular contributor on Wikipedia, I am a Google Local Guide (currently level 7), and I am part of the Google Translate community.
