Checking the date of my last post I realised that it’s been a month since I wrote anything about Abruzzo.
I’m OK with that and I hope you are too.
I took time off and immersed myself in the festive season.
But I also managed to visit Abruzzo and as usual there wasn’t enough time to see everything and everyone that I would have liked.
Time does fly during the holidays.
But even though the trip was a bit of an eating fest I did get away from my sedentary base to see new places like Pescosansonesco in Pescara.
Can you imagine waking up every day to this view?
I posted this photo up on Facebook yesterday and the reaction was incredible. I guess it’s hard to take a poor photo when Abruzzo gives such stunning material.
I liked the photo so much I put it on my 500px photo page here. I’ll tell you more about what I’m planning with 500px in a later post, but for now just enjoy the photo and the other images, many from Abruzzo, that I’ve posted there.
The most unusual Christmas themed photo I took on this visit wasn’t actually taken in Abruzzo.
P and I took a day trip to Rome on the 6th January, the Feast of the Epiphany, and as we made our way from St. Peter’s Square towards Piazza Navona we turned down a side street to escape the crowds and saw this.
I love it.
To the guy who thought of putting a crib into a dumper scoop and suspending it from scaffolding – you had me smiling for hours and every time I look at the photo I grin again.
And that brings me nicely on to the New Year.
I’m a little late with good wishes but to all my readers, to the creator of the crib and all those who have discovered or have yet to discover Abruzzo – Happy 2013.
