Exploring back to the ages...

Italy is rich in historical places. If you are the type who enjoy the classic, this is the place for you.
These are located in the provinces of Rome: Tarquina and Tuscania. Rome is one of the largest cities in Italy and has many provinces, mostly preserved ancient cities. It is very common here where you see old castles, already manned by the city government as tourist spots. Even the colors of stonewalls and churches remain classic.







I have no exact idea about this castle below as we haven't found the way to get there. It seems uninhabited already, part of Rennaisance.

This one is a sundial that tells the exact solar time. It is situated in the big park of Tuscania.
I hope you enjoy my photos here. I am thinking of changing this site into a travel blog. I am still thinking of a new name for this site and thought to change that "caffe break" :).  Any suggestions? :)

Have a blessed February! Wow, how time flies!

Alla prossima...until next time!:)

A blessed New Year

I was out in blogosphere for a while but now I'm back!:)
We had a long holiday break in my husband's hometown.
The pictures below  are some I took. Actually, I have lots of photos taken
during the holiday but I don't want to consume this whole page here
with much pictures, just the most relevant for the Holiday season. (heheh)

This church is just a walking distance from their house. It was snowing
there for two days, during our two-week stay , so the pavements were all crystal white.
Found this little bethlehem inside the little chapel near this same church. It may seem simple but the details are meaningful to me.
 This last one was taken during the New Year's Eve outside while there were fireworks in the air. I like how the moving fireworks here created this colors.
I hope everybody  has a beautiful start of the year! God bless us all!

Walk and "fall" in love...


Had my walk the other day and this is how nature welcomed me...
a shower of yellow leaves on a November fall.
I just felt like walking down the aisle in the church while my groom
is waiting on the other end. :=)

 Spottted this car and I couldn't help but took picture. I hope the owner pick this soon
before it's too late and can no longer recognize his/her car...heheh!

 A short walk in the nearby park and I just love how the kingdom of leaves
reign all around.

Oh!How can I complain from a life that may not be perfect but closed to, because of the beauty and feelings that are simply priceless. I can only be thankful everyday.

Have a blessed weekend! :)

Magical nature

I consider this experience as one of my bests, being a naturelover.
And I am beyond thankful to God and my husband, as a living instrument,
 for he never fails to spoil me with trips like this one.
So I can say that it's not luck but a blessing to be able to see such beauty in reality.
Yes, we all are blessed in different ways, and I feel very honored
to be able to encounter nature in such magical way.
"Thank YOU, God! I can only be grateful all my life.





 In these pictures are my friend and I. We just feel like dreaming. And we can only stare at the calm lake like there's no tomorrow. My husband is our photographer, He's a camera-shy. :=)
Nature is God's most humble creation, yet we bow down on its natural beauty. It doesn't boast, it only accepts the changing season. I hope mother nature can teach me much of its calmness, esp. with the passing time, where not everyday is as beautiful and still.

Have a blessed week to all! Enjoy the view!;-)

October break

We went out of town, as we ended the month of October. We went to the mountainside in the Northern part of Italy, near the boundary of Austria. I enjoyed the view so much  that I just couldn't stop my camera from clicking.

Glad the weather was fine the whole time we stayed there. The temperature is still freezing in the mountain areas but the sun was up, so it helped a lot as we drove around the place. We had to cross this mountain to get to our rented apartment. There were tunnels, some only for few meters, but the ones that took few kms. drive, made me a bit scared. :)

As we came past by those tunnels and zigzag roads, these are views that we saw along the way. I just  love the farm life, seeng the animals calmly feeding grasses.

 I was little amazed that it still seemed springtime here, I couldn't help from admiring these lovely flowers in the terraces.
 The color of autumn is always a delight to our sight.

 We made a short stop on that bench and took pictures around while admiring the golden trees, surrounded by mountain rocks.
 As we headed on, these are views along the road. They are so beautiful! Such beauty of nature!
 This is the view from our rented apartment. I woke up for three nights seeng these colorful trees from our window.
Travel is already a part of life. We will have more realization about how grand and great are God's creations in travelling. There are challenges along the way, like dealing with the coldest weather ever, and scary roads, but we all are meant to conquer our fear and are winners in our own ways. Just be positive because God is ever and always present.

Have a wonderful November ahead! Buon Viaggio! :=)

October Fall

I wanted to start the habit of taking a long walk everyday. Yesterday was my first try.

October fall is such a delight to look at. While it has been raining here for days now,
and the sun being elusive, the fall colors seem to substitute the bright.
Luckily, I caught the clouds in blue yesterday during my walk
and got these beauties below. Thank God!

Blessed days ahead everyone!:=)

Tuscany

One of the most beautiful regions in Italy is Tuscany( Toscana).
We made our half day road trip along green valleys of the Tuscans and
I brought with me this memory.


And so it's true that travelling will make us realize how much
gifts we actually have from heaven, as we look around mother nature.
It's simply priceless!

Have a wonderful road trip here! Until next stop..God bless!:-)
