Elanna | 31 comments Hi everybody,
I've been around for a while reading posts and taking inspiration, then I found out I've never written an introduction post... shame on me...
Well, I'm Anna and I'm quite spaced out most of time.
Italian, Galway based, full-time waitress/part-time teacher, in love with Ireland and with loads of other things, including reading, Tai Chi, food, cinema, languages.
Top ten fictional books in my life (not in order, never in order):
Divine Comedy
Ulysses
Heart of Darkness
Treasure Island
Moby Dick
The Never Ending Story
Odyssey
The History by Elsa Morante
Remenbrance of Things Past
To Kill a Mockingbird
Genji Monogatari
I know, they are 11.

Hi Anna,
Good to meet you (saw your post re. my intro). You certainly have a diverse background. Glad you don't mind the Irish weather. I love Ireland and go back to see family in Belfast every other month. Love all the Mediterranean countries: weather, food, lifestyle. Still, it's not too cold here today. To my shame I gave up on Ulysses but enjoyed The Dubliners.

I really don't mind! Can't stand hot summers, love colourful woollen accessories... so here I am!


thank you everybody!

Oh yeah. I studied it at high school, partly in original. Poetry & adventure all in one :D
