I spent some days is North Italy, in Südtirol. We went to Bruneck and Kronplatz.
We had lunch in the Cai Hütte.

The first ski tow was made in 1964. Before there was nothing, just nature and silence.

Some times a piece of cake shared with a dear friend, on top of a mountain makes you feel so happy.
The silence around you, the wonderful view, the love from the person nearby.
There is no need for anything else, just to have the time to enjoy.

Aaaaaah, I love Sundays!

Sunday lunch

And I love them even more we I find me alone with my husband.
We are a big loud family, so when it happens the silence is so appreciated.
:-)

A simple sandwich eaten while looking at the lake in silence is lovely.
Just him and me.

Black & White Wednesday #38 – (en)

I have been in the Italian region of Piemonte last week end.
I have never been so high up in the Italian Alps before, I was stricken by the beauty. It is really breathtaking.

Uja di Ciamarella

Piano della mUssa

I went there to follow a class of Instructor of Nordic Walking .
Here you can read where it all started, the NW was brought to Italy
by Marko Kantaneva who taught Tommy Schöpf who taught (and founded ANI)
Fabrizio Lorenzoni who taught me :-)
Makes me feel important :-))
It is over 350km to Balme from Valsorda on the Garda lake where I live, so I preferred to start the afternoon before.
I got to Ala di Stura, one of the little villages along the Stura River at 6 p.m
Left bags and car in the hotel and took a walk to the center where I immediately bought a Guide Book and a map.
Then I stopped at the only market in Ala, I bought something to drink and eat and
then followed a path in the  woods.
When I found a nice peaceful place with a good view I sat, eat and read.

I didn’t mind being alone, I work as a guide and must talk all the day (I don’t mind that mind me :-D), I have a big family sometimes a little too crowed and loud (well, I’m a very loud person too), so the silence and the loneliness was very, very
appreciated.

As dessert some wild strawberries growing everywhere
