*** If travelling is about discovery in the first place, there’s no need to go far. You only need to see the world around you with curious eyes, don’t you?
*** One of those summer nights that seem never to come to an end. When you stay out late, your hair still wet, chasing every bit of light, while the sky and the sea turn every shade of blue.
*** a haze of hot days spent seeking the coolest spots at the sound of cicadas. anaps of laughters and diving pic-nics with friends, hands picking wild berries, ice creams dripping and mozzarella bubbling on our pizzas. and bridges, many bridges crossed of course,
*** The first day of holidays. That sweet feeling of coming home and old time friends And the light, Rome’s unique light! It’s sweet to come back sometimes.
*** Seeking shelter on a rainy afternoon, I ended up in an unexpected parallel dimension, warm and humid, where silence reigned and time seemed to have stopped. No birds or animal sounds. No wind among the leaves. Just the sound of water hissing from somewhere. And within this silence, one could almost feel all these green creatures, big and small, breathe and grow. Each one in its own particular way. But all turned towards the light.

*** Rome is a light that you’d recognize anywhere. A technicolor sky, reflections on the river and birds flying up above. It’s the great beauty, flowered balconies, crowded restaurants and open bars. A traffic mess, cars anywhere, dirty streets, messy public services. It’s a never-ending vacation, a mellow and joyful decadence. Rome equals time slowing down. And finding yourself by the river over and over, catching a different sunset each time.
