I love travelling and discovering new places, customs and traditions. At times I really feel the urge to leave behind my routine, to pack a bag and just go wherever my heart takes me. Unfortunately (and at the same time, thank God) I have a full-time job and only a few days of vacation per year so I can’t really do what I want whenever I want. Still, I can dream of long exotic journeys while planning little trips and one day excursions.
Last Sunday, my boyfriend and I did one of those excursions. We visited Castell’Arquato, which is a magical and timeless medieval burg in Emilia-Romagna, Italy. And we are not going to stop; in fact, we’re going on a two day trip to Tuscany in about 3 weeks from now. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Here’s a picture of the fortress and the surroundings of Castell’Arquato.
