When I was younger, I usually went hiking with my dad.
He had one of those hiking guides that lists all the walks in a certain region; I still remember the name: “Il Cammina Campania. Guida WWF”.
I have wonderful memories of those walks: the early wake-up, me sleeping in the car, the 4+ hours of walking, collecting dead branches to create our very walking sticks…
Since then, though, I didn’t hike so much. Just some random walks in nearby parks, or something like that.
So when I and Valeria were planning our holidays I asked her if she’d like spending a week walking around the mountains. And she said yes!
It was great!
I feel so refreshed and full of energy, that I’m asking myself how I’ve survived without this for all of these years.
