I must give many thanks to Meticulous Mick who is indeed a very attentive blogger with http://meticulousmick.wordpress.com/2013/10/20/the-wordpress-family-award/ and who nominated me for this award which was been created by Shaun http://prayingforoneday.wordpress.com/2013/04/21/the-wordpress-family-award/

I also have to apologise to Wavelet (justmusing) and Mart (one man and his mustang) who nominated me before and I didn’t take the opportunity to go further.
And not in the last thanks to http://www.wordpress.com by giving us the freedom to express our passions, hobbies, works, our dreams.

I made this list based on our interaction in the last two months. Like it or not that’s it. I apologise because I can’t insert a link, just copy-past, I have no clue why it doesn’t work…or what I do wrong. One more thing, I’ll be way at least one week, so if you don’t see me liking your post, that means I’m away from internet, nothing else.
Stay well and keep smile!

Sirmione del Garda

Sirmione

“Let us live and love, nor give a damn what sour old men say.
The sun that sets may rise again, but when our light has sunk into the earth it is gone forever.” Catullus

And not in the last, here comes Sirmione, a small and dearest town which meant a lot to me and perhaps still does.
They say Sirmione is famous for its thermal water with its healing properties and because “some” writers as Catullo (Catullus), Stendhal, Lawrence and Ghoete made it even more famous by honouring its artistic and environmental beauty.
Visiting Sirmione in December 2010 and without knowing its notable background, it simply conquered me. The walks, those petite coffee shops, those bruschettas were amazing. And how cool is that having a hot bath outdoor when are zero C degrees? I wish all of you to have a chance to be there not only on this virtual trip.

“Life is too short, and the time we waste in yawning never can be regained.” Stendhal

“Only great minds can afford a simple style.” Stendhal

 


“Every day we should hear at least one little song, read one good poem, see one exquisite picture, and, if possible, speak a few sensible words.” Goethe

Peschiera del Garda

100_3503“Citta turistica e d’Arte” offers visible historical testimonials from Roman period to Napoleon’s siege to Habsburg’s occupancy when Peschiera was one of the fortifications of the Quadrilateral fortress along with Verona, Mantua and Legnano.

Peschiera del Garda is the single commune of Veneto awarded (2012-2017) with “Gioiello d’Italia” for the touristic development and valorization of the teritory. The video is in Italian language: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-7jwFoL6VQ&feature=youtu.be

Malcesine del Garda

Imag001 Okay…I have two more (besides Malcesine) on this topic even there are many towns which border Lake Garda, I don’t have pictures for them. Lucky you, I guess…! Malcesine’s pictures are taken three years ago with a Nokia phone…so excuse me for unclear views but you can get the charm of town from a Castle (Castello Scaligero) built between 5th-6th centuries A.D. by Langobards.
