Lake Landro, Val Landro, Dobbiaco, Italy
This wheel is part of the cableway which brought provisions from Lake Landro to Mt. Piana for the soldiers during the First World War – Italy – Austria.
It is in moments like visiting such an amazing Lake and in knowing about its role during the First World War which makes me understand the value of peace and freedom.
Good day to all!
I think the best way to visit Naples is having somebody from the place to tour you around the city. I didn’t waste our time and though it was just a day trip, we were able to see some important landmarks of the city. Like the churches of San Gennaro, Santa Filomena, piazzale Largo San Martino e most of all…to finally visit the city of Pompei. I was not really prepared to see a city destroyed by a violent eruption of a volcano but what I saw left me with mixed emotions.

The following pictures are from the archeological site of the ancient Roman city of Pompei:
Oh! Aside from the breathtaking view of Naples, the coastline and Mt. Vesuvio from “Piazzale Largo San Martino, you can also find shops where you can buy handmade “Cameos”. Honestly, I am quiet worried for all those who are living very near the volcano!
Traveling is really a very good way to learn deeper about places and its people. Often, prejudiced opinions written or said has the power to discourage anyone but surely, for me, one of the best ways to understand and see reality is experiencing or seeing it with my own eyes, not through the eyes or experiences of someone else.
Autumn here in Italy…a centuries old historical Bridge and the heartwarming memory of days spent with the special persons in my life.
“Ponte Vecchio” – Old Bridge and the river Arno. A world famous symbol of the city of Florence Italy.

Gloomy days, like some days of Autumn, can be brightened with heartwarming thoughts of days spent with love ones. I cannot bring back time but I can savor and make each moment of each day count as if it is my last one… I have gathered a lot of heartwarming memories of special persons and places. I have learned a lot of lessons and I know I still have a lot to learn. Life is a very interesting journey!
Wishing everyone a pleasant and restful weekend!
An afternoon walk in a cloudy day, a Nikon d5200, good company and the need to learn more about one of my greatest passions, Photography, just colored a cloudy autumn day.

Autumn is always an interesting season.

Taking pictures for me, is like freezing time. If I will learn to do it well, it would be like expressing without words the essence of the moment, the profound beauty of the gifts of nature and it would be like having once again the sweet memory of bygone days.
Wishing everyone a wonderful Sunday and a pleasant and fruitful week.
I fill my thoughts with all the beautiful things seen until this day
I dream of new opportunities and positive experiences
I hope for new ways to understand the connection between life and time
My past is nothing but a guideline to the present
The future is a dream, almost within reach.
Campo Tures 2019, Alto Adige, Italy
Wishing everyone a pleasant and fruitful week!
I dream of blue skies, cool air, a mountain and fields with flowers
I hope the ticks will not find me.
A romantic garden…
Refreshing hues of green
Sophora Japonica Pendula…A Sleeping Beauty for more than 100 years.
Villa Revedin Bolasco.
A particular staircase that caught
my eye. “Lo scalone del Meduna”
Le scuderie – the Stable
A romantic garden to help me understand even more, that life is a journey, sometimes in search for the hidden priceless “gems”… a landscape created by man and nature to give generations to come an amazing gift that could last forever…
Wishing everyone a wonderful week!
The Marmolada “Regina delle Dolomiti” – the Queen of the Dolomites – this sunny summer day made me see why.
Wishing everyone a restful and joyful Sunday!
Sometimes it is not always a question of having time to visit amazing places. Finding time and saving for it can sometimes make this dream possible.
A map of the Lake. The trail for the walk around the lake was easy for an average hiker like me and well-signed.
How about reading a book for 20 minutes from this point of the lake? Oh! Sometimes, I find myself so busy to read a 200 pages book in a week so I decided to read a few pages everyday so I could surely finish it in a month. If I could do this, I’d be able to read at least 8 books in a year!
And as I walk around this beautiful lake, I met a lot of persons, with their families or alone, with different expressions on their faces. And I thought, we can savor the beauty of this amazing place because somebody thought of taking care of it.
A wood sculpture…
An easy 2 hours hike and it left me with a lasting and very profound and beautiful memory.
Wishing everyone a wonderful and restful Sunday.
The “Sentiero delle Leggende”, Val di Fassa, Italy – one of the pathways to reach Rifugio Vajolet.
The joy of finally reaching one of the mountain huts in my bucket list is beyond words. Maybe because it was in my list for 23 years!
Dreams do come true if it is meant to be… Act and plan + dream and believe 🤔
To reach the “Sentiero delle leggende” – we took 2 chairlifts from Pera di Fassa to Pian Pecei.
The following are some views from the trail…
The first legend. ” gli Stregoni dei Mugoni” – The wizards of the Mugons
A natural garden only nature can do. Sometimes I wonder if I am doing enough to take care of this free and amazing gift.
Rifugio Stella Alpina
Le torri del Vajolet
The Dolomites…an amazing place to be and to see.
On the way back, a short stop by this stream of cold water to dip for a minute my feet and…
A small butterfly hovered and stopped on a small rock. Resting like me?
Wishing everyone an amazing week!
