Would you like a free guide to Abruzzo?
Would you like over 400 pages describing the history of Abruzzo, the landscapes of Abruzzo and the culture of Abruzzo? Would you like a guide that breaks Abruzzo into seven sections and is so current that it highlights the key towns and villages of the movie The American?
Well over at A-Tour they may have the guide for you. Just register, as I did, giving your name, your email and selecting a username and you can download this guide in PDF format for free.
If there’s a catch, I haven’t discovered it yet.
The website says the guide is
divided into some distinct sections that illustrate some overviews, but that also go through detailed itineraries in seven different areas of interest. A special room is reserved to local operators with a detailed description of the specific characteristics that distinguish their business. The journey ends, last but not least, with “Abruzzo nuggets”: a treasure to be looked for among the excellence of local productions. So, good Abruzzo to everyone!
I haven’t examined it in detail, but at first glance it looks very comprehensive and I think there is plenty of interesting information in it. There aren’t too many guides dedicated to Abruzzo in English so this is worth looking at.
Now it’s time for some photographs. Looking at my recent posts I can see that in the last six posts I haven’t included any photographs. It must be the first time I’ve gone so long without including a photo or two. It’s not that I don’t have a tonne of them; I guess I just didn’t feel the posts required them.
According to my computer weather widget the temperature where I am is -7 degrees centigrade. That’s not a typo; we’re talking 7 below zero. The world’s gone mad. If I was in Abruzzo right now the temperature would be at least 15 degrees. Over 20 degrees in the difference – I could handle that.
So I looked through my photo archive and selected a few warming photographs to try and spiritually melt the ice that I see from my window.
I hope you like them. They were all taken in the Vestina region of Abruzzo – the land of the Vestini. Where’s that and who were the Vestini? You can find out all about the area and the people if you download the guide.
