ciao Max e benvenuto. I totally agree with what Massimo has said. Do not be afraid to ask questions.

I hope you don't mind bu I have made one or two corrections to what you wrote:

Why viaggiare and not itinerante? Because viaggiare is the verb we use for travel, viaggi is the noun. Itinerante refers more to people who move from one place to another - I think the word is hobo! And when you want to say you like something like travel it is more common to use the verb - mi piace viaggiare, mi piace mangiare gelati, mi piace bere il vino rosso italiano etc.

Also with studio in your last sentence, you must use the infinitive studiare. I am not sure about the preposition before studiare - it may be da - even after all these years prepositions are still a bit of a minefield for me personally! :)

Anyway, keep it going and any questions simply fire away. However, if at all possible have a crack at something yourself before posing the question. That way you should learn a lot quicker. :)

Benvenuto ancora
