Italy, and the spring and first love all together should suffice to make the gloomiest person happy.
Some impressions from a recent trip to the Italian Riviera. These pictures were taken in a little town named "Finale Ligure, that is so beautiful. It is quiet and very alive at the same time. There are chic little boutiques in ancient pallazzi, shops that sell all kinds of delicious foods and the houses are all painted in these warm, vibrant hues that i love: soft pinks, creamy yellows, light purple, reds and greens. There are big Palm trees just in front of the turquoise meditteranian ocean and beaches filled with little stones that look like gems. We managed to be there just before the big crowd of tourists arrived, and were so lucky to enjoy space and quietness between the beaches and the hills of silvery olive trees.
I have a dear old friend visiting at the moment, and therefore spend less time on the computer right now. I hope you all have sparkling week and are making the best of summer. Will come and visit you these days!
