I was in Japan May 2017 and thats one of the best times of my life. I also travel a lot in my country. Started to a challange about it actually; at least 1 country per year 1 city per month
Amateur Photography
In 2015 I decided to buy a camera as I was traveling a lot. My searches end up with a Sony rx100 m3. Actually as it is not seem like a brillant camera, I am pretty satisfied with the results. Most important thing is it makes me discover my surroundings and search for beauty in everyday life and ordinary things. Instagram: fototropi
I love experimenting new things. I am pretty new on this definitely need a course and and more practice. Still without talent it makes me calm, focussed and amazed with the beauty.
Another experiment of mine, playing piano. Just started it actually and moving slowly. One day I want to see myself playing "Appassionata", one of my favourite.
Sometimes especially if my job begins to be repetitive, I keep myself busy with trial and error style mini projects. Tried Forex with MQL4 programming, machine learning with basic principles, lately discovered Gym on OpenAi and looking forward to experiment on that too. Beside these interesting topics abandoned several nontrivial projects, mostly written in PHP.

If I am in the mood I read a lot. Besides on daily reads of technical articles, I like to read popular science, futurism, utopia / distopias, antropology, alternative economies... Sometimes even writing sci-fi / utopia mini stories.

As I am living very close to a cinema, I have a routine of watching popular films, mostly 3 times a month. I prefer horror, science fiction, action and comedy films.

Being a travel lover I also like trekking. If the place I go is in a reasonable distance, I prefer walking. That gives the opportunity to see neighborhood, maybe take some beautiful shots and burn some calories as we grow belly easily. :)
