Hello from Lake Como!
A personal note from the author.
When people ask me “why you started this project?” I like to tell them this short story.
There was a friend from abroad who had the chance to pay me a quick visit. Long story short, it was on his last day in town something unexpected happened. While I was taking him to the railway station, I noticed he was deeply immersed in his own thoughts with his eyes fixed on the landscape in front of us. Once questioned, He said he was completely mesmerized by the beautiful panorama on the way from Cernobbio to Como.
And then he suddenly asked me a simple question: “Why do you like so much travelling abroad?.. I mean, look at this. You live in one of the most beautiful places in the world. You have all this just outside the door..”
His words were the drive force I needed to start this blog.
