Comforting words from Jasper.

Back! I was in Italy while I was away, and don’t even get me started on how many photos I took. Enough to keep me in Dakaia-relevant stock images for the rest of my life, I think. I also came back with a big stack of Italian comics – in short, a very successful holiday! Updates are back on for the foreseeable future, so see you all next Friday!

Ah si si, bella Italia! Did my “Grand Tour”, too, and came back ever since. At least when i have enough money for fuel and camping. Always far away from tourist traps to see the genuine side of Italy. Only one exemption – the Pantheon in Rome. That´s the place i always visit on almost every tour. A magical, a really magical place. Just to sit there under that 2000 year old cupola gives me serenity, can´t even explain exactly why (And i don´t even want an explanation… ;-) ).

Which places did you visit, if i may ask?

Lucca, Pisa, and Florence! It was all insanely lovely. It’d be nice to break out of the cities more and see the less frequented areas as you said, but unfortunately a week isn’t very much time! Quite honestly, just visiting somewhere that was completely different to Scotland in so many ways made the trip worthwhile.

I know what you mean. Poet Friedrich Hebbel once said “Eine Reise ist ein Trunk aus der Quelle des Lebens.” – roughly translated “A journey is a potion from the well of life”.
And he´s right. :-)
