There should be no reason for a young Italian with a job who lives at home without a mortgage to say things to me like “ma non c’é niente in Canada” or “non mi sembra niente di speciale” (riferendo al bellissimo Lake Louise che si trova a Banff National Park). Il nostro mondo è molto più grande di quanto pensate e ogni paese ha la sua bellezza. Aprite la mente all’opportunità, alle culture diverse, magari imparerete qualcosa tipo...cosa c’è da vedere in Canada. Go, see with your own eyes, and report back.
There should be no reason for a young Italian with a job who lives at home without a mortgage to say things to me like "but there's nothing in Canada" or, referring to beautiful Lake Louise, "it doesn't seem like anything special to me". Our world is much bigger than you think and every country has its own beauty. Open your minds to opportunity, to different cultures, maybe you'll learn something like...what there is to see in Canada. Go, see with your own eyes, and report back.
(I wrote this because I personally think it’s unacceptable if you are financially-able, to be ignorant of the world that you live in. This applies to all young people, not just Italians. We are fortunate to live in a world where commercial air travel is more or less in the reach of the middle-class. Use it. See this great, big, wonderful world of ours and learn to speak from experience, not presumption or assumption.) xoxo.
