At some point, you really feel that need to pack a little and leave for a while. 🌲

🎶 (and THIS was the soundtrack - if you need some music in the background)

It was almost the end of 2017 when I felt that need. So I packed a little, left the ordinary in search of time, beauty, extraordinary, quiet and literally drove into the winter.

I drove to Piedmont, Italy, and stayed in

just at the foot of Monte Rosa

I come here often (check other stories 😅), as this place has a special power to attract me.

🏔

Here life goes slower, nature has a different role, climate tells time and people do the same.

I believe it’s mountains’ fault.

🌲

And if you’re able to feel their influence you easily become part of this, and this is magic.

I went back skiing after a super long time. ⛷

Then I went back hiking (right under the east wall of Monte Rosa, literally under the influence of mountains).

🌲

and I felt like an happy kid under the influence of mountains, sliding (while singing) down of those white hills.

up there we just stayed and stared. We were speechless, I was speechless. 🗻

and then I got lost in the winter. It was everywhere: under my feet, over my head, between my hand and all around us.

❄️

we kept on walking, right into it.

I was grateful. To the year that was going away, and to the one that was beginning right there.

🛷

And mountains were there, right over us, with their invisible eyes on us.

and I promised myself to escape more, and let the mountains influence me again and again.

happy 2018, from here.
