La porteña with an Italian heart
Giselle from Buenos Aires, Argentina
My name is Giselle Pronesti, I am Argentine by birth, Italian by blood and Mexican by adoption. I was born and live in Buenos Aires, although most of the time it seems that my life takes place in a small piece of Italy. My four grandparents and my mother are from Calabria and I grew up with stories of immigrants, homemade food and dialects.
As a child I thought that when I grew up I would be a writer or a hostess. Life took me to other paths, but I still love airplanes and writing travel journals.
My life in Buenos Aires
My passions are traveling, learning about new cultures, trying foods and learning languages. I love to dance, cook, plants, model pottery, decorate, recycle things and take pictures.
I am very lazy for sports, but if it comes to walking in a new place I can beat even the most athletic of companions.
I like nature, but when I travel I love getting lost in the cities.
I am convinced that what makes you fall in love with a place is its people. And thanks to the trip, I can say that I have met my most precious friends.
