Hello everyone! My name is Mirko and I come from Italy.
Since childhood, I have been passionate about geography, flags and languages. This passion has affected me deeply, pushing me towards learning languages and travelling to those countries I had read about as a child.
University and work brought me away from my hometown Arezzo in September 2006 and since then I have been living abroad, first in France (Grenoble and Bordeaux), then in Belgium (Liege), after that in the UK (Southend-on-Sea) and finally in the Czech Republic (Prague) where I am currently based.
I love building trips by myself – from purchasing the airplane tickets to planning the itinerary, from making research on the country of destination to choosing the best way to get around – and meeting locals to have a full travel experience.
Mirkontinental is a collection of travel tips, road trip itineraries, descriptions of places and meetings I want to share with fellow travelers.
I cannot forget to mention my great travel companions in recent years, my partner Marta and my parents Gigliola and Salvatore.
Feel free to contact me in English, French and Czech for any comment, suggestion or project cooperation.
Hope you will enjoy the reading!
