CIAO & WELCOME
We are the Miljian Family: Julien, Miki, Teo and Lia. This space is the diary of our adventures around the world!
On a hot summer night in beautiful Florence, we found ourselves sitting on the ground under our kitchen window when we decided it was the moment to realize one of our greatest dreams. We switched on the music, laid down on the bed and gazed upon our big friend: an immense map of the world hanging on the wall right above our heads. There and then we bought a one way ticket to the other side of the world.
Starting September, we will not have bricks and walls to call a house anymore, we will become full time travellers and call the world our home! First stop, Bali! Before take-off, this space will be the diary where we open up about us making the arrangements in anticipation of the Big Day, about the memories left piled in storage boxes, about our organizational adventures. This space is our Family Diary.
The diary of a love story between a young Frenchman, talking without a rolling R, who meets a young woman who just stepped off a train from Milan, dreaming of a new life in the city of Renaissance.
The diary of our memories ever since we first fell asleep while our eyes wandered over the Florence skyline, from the eighth floor attic terrace towering over the city’s roofs (rigorously missing an elevator).
The diary of our departure far beyond the Alps all the way to Paris, following the "Ville Lumière" dream.
The diary of our Parisian life, which was supposed to last “six months to a year at most before moving back to Italy", but in the end it became the stage of our growing roots making us believe that maybe, in that sixth floor 30 square meter apartment with a view on the roofs of Paris (again, rigorously without an elevator), we could stay forever.
Instead, something changed.
This space also is the diary of a young Frenchman, now rocking a full beard, who becomes a daddy and of a young woman, with all her dreams still intact, who becomes a mommy.
This space is the diary of a Family welcoming a new member under the shadow of the Tour Eiffel and decides to change scenery to eat gelato while looking over Ponte Vecchio. The diary of a Family that loves to multiply, growing from two to three and then four, when yet a new member who smells like strawberries joins the Family. Life rolls on until that memorable hot summer night in beautiful Florence where we finally decided to turn our lives into an extraordinary story.
This diary is the story of a big amount of love, of a couple d’amoreux who decides to enroll their son and daughter to the school of life, to jump on a plane and call the world their home.
And now a little bit more about each of us:
Born under the sign of Pisces, his long beard is mostly needed to hide the tears he sheds while watching cartoons. Entrepreneur with an excellent aestethic taste, lover of good cuisine and anything that is beautiful (and tasty). He is the "babbo ballerino" (dancing daddy).
Fan of Michael Jordan and vietnamese bo bun, enthusiastic hats collector, loves to write and is a born storyteller. As a child she used to wait for the sun to set so she could see her dancing steps reflecting on the window panes from within her room. Vintage soul, summer is her season and the sun is her best friend.
Curly blonde, reaching the height of one meter. He decided to arrive during the Oscar’s ceremony. Knows the names of all the animals in the world by heart. Loves meatballs and pasta with tuna. Often busy with hiding stuff into heaters. Great observator, no detail gets past him. He is the Lion of the family.
If a strawberry macaron could spring into life, rest assured it would look like her. She knows any strategy in the book when it comes to being held and cuddled and with her never-ending smile she could melt anyone’s heart. Sweet and tenacious, she is the warrior princess carrying the sweet scent of cream puffs.
