Travel has been a part of my life since birth. With expat-parents from Italy, I spent a lot of my childhood globetrotting. I was born in Hong Kong and lived in Japan where I spent much of my childhood exploring South East Asia. As a kid I returned every summer to the city of Milan and Lake Maggiore where they were from. At the age of 11 I moved to the US to New York City and Connecticut and have been here ever since. Being exposed to all these old villages, languages, cultures, cafés and foods ignited a passion in me to travel. At the age of 24, I currently work in the publishing industry and have worked for magazines such as DEPARTURES and Women’s Health. However, I devote my free time to traveling and sharing my experiences with the world via my own personal photography and insider travel tips on where to go, what to see and where to eat.

I am Italian and American and speak three languages, including Italian and French. In 2016, I decided to pursue my interest in travel, sprinkled with a little bit of lifestyle and fashion, and share it with the world. Since my name is Sveva and I absolutely adore everything travel and lifestyle, my blog SVADORE was born.

To share a little bit of myself..I love rosé and red wine, european culture (you’ll find that I have a particular soft spot for the Italian culture), traveling, shopping, a clean and organized house, architecture, the smell of my Coco Mademoiselle perfume, the bitter yet sweet taste of a Negroni Sbagliato over ice, sushi, I have a soft spot for pastries, and Cappuccinos and croissants for breakfast (of course..).

SVADORE endeavors to inspire readers’ next getaway or experience revealing the hidden gems and off the beaten path experiences only an insider can uncover. From affordable to expensive experiences, travel can be enjoyed no matter the budget–one just needs to search! When readers turn to SVADORE, they are looking for the small, one-of-a-kind experiences they can’t find in any old travel guide.

So sit back, get comfortable, grab a cappuccino and a croissant and let SVADORE inspire your next travel destination or experience! As my favorite character Miranda Priestly would say in the Devil Wears Prada — That is All.
