Europe 12.11.2018 – The Garfagnana

Day 2 in Europe I stayed over at my cousin’s place in Termina Vicinato which he has been working on and improving over the years and I must say, he has done a wonderful job with the place!

The house has Four Bedrooms, two bathrooms, a view of the Garfagnana area of Tuscany; I’d seriously recommend it to anybody who is keen to visit the area:

Some photos of the place  (including the view) are featured below:

 

Without a doubt, the Tuscan scenery is exquisite and one of the benefits of having a good camera – and knowing how to use it – allows me to convey this message through digital imagery and not only through descriptive prose (one can reserve that for works of fiction 😉 ).

This was also a great opportunity to explore the Garfagnana area for a little bit and walk through some of the villages. The closest village to Vicinato is Molazzana. However, there are others in the vicinity such as Barga, Galicano, Mologno to name but a few. All of these villages are beautiful and I will most likely visit different ones whenever I am in the area. The Castle of the Garfagnana is also on my list for the next trip to Tuscany. For now though, here are some pictures from our walk in a village called Sassi:

 

Europe 11.11.2018 – Milan

It is actually about time that I start uploading my Europe photos in order instead of in dribs and drabs on facebook.

 

November, before the snows hit, I went for a short road trip through Europe with my cousin. Day 1 involved meeting up in Milan – the destination of my EasyJet flight. It was my first time in the city, if not in Italy, and I am glad that we had some time to sight-see for a little bit. Also the first night was spent at the Hilton Milan – so no complaints there regarding accommodation 🙂

 

The Pictures below were taken at the Cathedral and at the Galeria of Vittorio Emanuelle II:

Death and Religion

Topics which go hand in hand. I showed the last little collection of images to my wife and she said that both were depressing images as they were photographed in a graveyard in Tuscany which my cousin and I passed through on a walk.

“Why on Earth did you go and photograph in a graveyard?” She asked.

Honestly though, it wasn’t my intent, we happened to be passing through.

I do, however, find both topics to be fascinating in relation to the human psyche, so please have a quick browse through the images.
