prize of mornings

Mornings are parts of our travel. We have become used to this routine everytime we go on little vacation or just a weekend getaway. So I take pride in being able to witness how the sun rises every time. There was a saying that goes, " If you want to be a great photographer, you don't need a very expensive camera, you only need to be ahead of sunrise, for there are moments within the day that will never come back for you to capture." And it's so true.

This one is taken in Roma while on our way to South Italy, where my husband's hometown is located.

This second one is located in Central Italy. This city, which is on the hilltop,  is surrounded with thick fog one early morning as we drove on. Looks like a castle, as you can see , but that grand structure is actually the cathedral of the main city.


Have a great ride in here, readers and friends! Enjoy!

my first bigné

Made my first bigné yesterday.. I copied the recipe from a baking show on tv. Bigné is like a soft type of bread and has sweet cream fillings...you either fill them with chocolate or just a simple sweet cream. This pastry is one of the known sweets of Italy.
Perhaps, a good companion to a cup of cappuccino.. anyway, have a sweet weekeday!

Buon appetito! 😊

Temples of the South

It's my first time to have seen temples such as these. This summer is one of my most unique adventures, for I normally go to beaches every summer. But this time, it's a lot really different, discovering some greek temples of Italy.

These greek temples are located in Paestum, Salerno (South Italy).

It's been said that the reasons that led the greeks to settle in Italy are especially connected to the need of cultivable land, the overpopulation of their land of origin, and the fight for famine.

This city was once named Poisedonia. When the Romans conquered the place, its name was changed to Paestum (up present).


Temple of Athena

I love this scene. Father and daughter having their bonding moment
while painting the temple on- the- spot.

 Temple of Neptune (the largest of the three)


 this last one is the temple of Hera, which is the oldest

Thanks for hopping on! Until next ride. Ciao for now! Have a blessed Monday!
