aikido and me... ;-)Just a few words about myself..

I’m an Italian man that after an exchange student experience in Trondheim, Norway, moved back up here for research and work..  I lived in Stavanger for 4 years, after 7 years in Trondheim and 2 years in Oslo..

After that, in April 2010, I moved to China, for starting a new chapter in my life. Some new stories, to add to the ones I dream..

I’m an electronic engineer (..booooooring, uhm?) playing around with laser and other photon beams (**cool**!)..

My main interests are Japanese martial arts, photography, travelling, chat/penpals from East Asia, knowing those cultures, learning Japanese language.. yeah, my head has been turned to East for a long time.. the body catched up with the head for a few years.. 🙂 Now (Sept. 2013) it has become a dream again

Mi chiamo Tania Bolsi e collaboro con il webmagazine italiano http://www.mollotutto.com, che si occupa di raccogliere storie di italiani che hanno deciso di mollare tutto, cambiare vita e trasferirsi definitivamente all’estero.
Penso che la sua storia sia adatta allo spirito del nostro sito, così Le chiedo la sua disponibilità ad avere un’intervista via e-mail.
Le invierò brevi domande, le chiederò dei motivi alla base della sua scelta, del lavoro che fa oggi e che faceva un tempo e dei consigli che si sente di dare a chi vorrebbe mollare tutto.
Sottolineo che tale intervista verrà da me pubblicata sul sito http://www.mollotutto.com senza alcun pagamento da parte sua.
L’opportunità per lei sarebbe ottima: il nostro sito gode di una buona visibilità, anche presso altri mass media, grazie ai numerosi iscritti e visitatori quotidiani.
Spero vorrà cogliere quest’importante opportunità di condivisione e visibilità.
La ringrazio in anticipo della sua cortese attenzione.
Nella speranza di ottenere una risposta affermativa le invio i miei più cari saluti,
Tania Bolsi
