Dreaming of an Island

Isola di San Paolo isle, Monte Isola, Iseo Lake, Lombardy, Italy
Isola di San Paolo, Iseo Lake, Italy

There was a time when I dreamed of having an island of my own. Many have this dream. Then we realize that we need a lot of money. Alas, the dream remains a dream.

The island above is the islet of San Paolo in Lake Iseo, Italy, in a misty morning. Ah, by the way, the owners of this island produce weapons. Here it is!

Turn On the Lights

Trabocco Sasso della Cajana

We are in the Trabocchi coast in Abruzzo,Italy. A Trabocco is a wooden platform that is (was) used to catch the passing fishes. For long time the inhabitants of this stretch of Adriatic coast lived of the catch of these Trabocchi. Alas, this kind of fishing is no longer profitable. So, in our days, many of these Trabocchi have been converted into fish restaurants. So the Trabocco Sasso della Cajana in Vallevò. Ah, originally Trabocchi had no eletric light, of course.
