Rome – Villa Pamphili

Take one day when you’re fed up of everything and everybody, you’ve been lock down more than others because you’re more scared of people than the virus…

And you decide to visit one of your favorite childhood place and face the world!

It’s insanely crowded out there… but how beautiful!

For a moment you forget to be stuck in Rome, you forget Rome, the virus, your rude neighbors, the cop that wanted to fine you because at 8.00 am you were alone on the beach… while the group of 10 people without face masks seemed to be unperceived!

Take one day, even less, to deep into nature and forget about everything.

Take one deep breath, despite the face mask, despite the crowd around you, despite the fact that temperatures are increasing.

I can’t remember the last time that I have seen this park so full of animals…for sure when I was a child.

The world without us is so beautiful and could prosperate so much!

We have been forced to slow down and it has be such a blessing!

I see all these wild animals and I forget about the people, I forget the crowd.

For the first time in my life I want to move to the mountains or to the countryside.

Everyone seems to be obsessed by the beach and the coast has never been that crowded.

How peaceful is here today, despite the fact that there are always too many people around!

  1. Ohh, how wonderful! <3 I can just imagine how it must have felt. I remember the tall pine trees, the turtles and the parrots from there. πŸ™‚ Last night we had an invasion of small brown flying beetles. Our outside walls were full of them. It was also incredibly hot. It is starting… Yes, mountains sound like a good idea. I hope you didn’t get bitten by a turtle. πŸ˜‰

  2. You were nearly fined?! If that wasn’t so ridiculous it would be laughable. Great to see so much wildlife in your photos, although I doubt it appreciates the reappearance of so many humans. Thanks for your email – I will reply tomorrow.

    1. I was about to be fined, yes! It’s unbelievable! πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ Yes, I tried to stay away and not approach too much. They must be confused in seeing masses of people all of a sudden 😲😑

    1. Yep, after the brand new law that allows you to bathe in the sea but not get dry on the beach, it seems that cops feel much more comfortable threatening and bothering a person walking alone than fining groups of people that are not wearing any protection! It sounds logical, isn’t it? πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

  3. How beautiful and wonderful. Joy and wonder in nature and the white geese are so stunning. Another lovely and inspiring post and I agree with you. Everything would be better off without us.

    1. Chaotic, as you can imagineπŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ˜… I have never seen so many people in my all life. I didn’t imagined that we were so much… they are all in the streets, mainly gathered in groups of 10, as if the pandemia was over!

      1. The French are only thinking about the summer holidays now. Not much concern about the economy, the many coming bankrupcies… Some photos on Mont Blanc were just… unreal.
        Stay safe still. Until the 15th to 20th of May. If there is no increase in cases/fatalities we’re (all) good.

        1. Same thing here. People complained all the time during the lock down and now they are buying clothes like crazy, going to the restaurants and booking holidays. Of course this is not an accurate image of the economic disaster that this lock down has been but it is surely true that a part of the population just don’t care and act like the virus was over or worse, never existed! Take care 😘πŸ’ͺ

          1. Seems to be the same everywhere. I wonder when “insouciance” becomes sheer madness. πŸ˜’
            I may have learnt one thing: I don’t really care any more. Nothing I can do. Would I be coming close to Buddha’s Illumination? LOL.
