      Not so hard.

      The secret is to keep yourself in motion.
      I first had to move from my very small hometown in Northern Italy to start college in Milano when I was younger, so when you do it the first time it gets easier and easier.

      When I finished my master I didn’t want to go back, so I felt natural to keep moving, looking for a very interesting PhD project somewhere else and keep exploring the world.

      It is another one of the perks of doing science and research, it has no geographical or social boundary, it is one of the most international things you can do.
