Who am I, where am I going and where do I come from?
Ah, such philosophical questions! Well, first things first, welcome to my blog.
My name is Iris, I’m Italian and I’m currently attending university in the charming city of Venice, where I’m graduating in history and philosophy.
My life goal is to travel as much as possible, ideally as a journalist and this blog is thought to be the coffer of my thoughts and my travel experiences. I want to share what I find and learn on the way, so why shouldn’t I take advantage of the amazing possibilities the web offers?
The blog’s name comes from songs related to both the Scottish and Irish cultures and it refers to my passion for traveling, the celtic culture and the fascinating world of sailors and pirates with its perils and freedom.
The blog features several sections: some regard specific travel adventures – see Italy and UK-; then you have the photography section and, last but not least, the “Maieutics” section.
What’s “maieutics”? Maieutics or the Socratic method “is a form of cooperative argumentative dialogue between individuals, based on asking and answering questions to stimulate critical thinking and to draw out ideas and underlying presumptions.“
I’ve chosen this title because Socrates has always been my favourite thinker and because I’d like this section to be as open as possible, therefore feel free to share your ideas and suggestions or to stimulate a debate!
This said.. go and have a look!
