Ode to my valley: Valsinni, panoramas of the whitelady

This morning was an astonishing one. I’m trying to get the maximum relax from my off-days, but Whatsapp and Facebook still won..they have been my alarm clock, so I woke up and – as I usually do – I opened up my balcony: I roused in 2 minutes and I felt so lucky to have an absolutely amazing view in front of me: Valsinni, the whitelady


Valsinni, a little village in a valley in the South of Italy, is the town where a river named Sinni flows under its bridge, which is one of the particular feature of this landscape. The 1st main one in fact is an old little Aragonese castle built since the Middle Age, where – the legend says – a wonderful lady used to live: it was her cage where she started to write poetry and be in love with the natural elements of the surroundings..the river, the utopian sea, the mountains.

Take a walk on the wild side

Take a walk on the wild side, tale-a-walk on the wild side helps you remember about past, think about present and maybe future. A walk on the wild side is what you should do at least once a month, if you’re able to.

This walk should be taken in your hometown, the place where you spent your childhood, the place you enjoy when you was a girl, the place you hate while your university-life because it offered you nothing to enjoy, the place you know love and you can’t wait to be there.

This is a bit of the wildness that everybody should have in life: fresh air, sun, green, yellow too, and time to enjoy it.

Some of the places remind you about your childhood, they were where you used to go with your parents for Sundays pic-nics or just to have a walk in the wild genuine nature, and they are still attracting people at Sundays.
