Mountains for me are emotion.
I live them at a slow pace, hike, trying to make what surrounds me my own.
I try not to be in a hurry and to savor each moment.
I try to respect nature as much as I can, because if it is true that everything changes I do not want the mountains of Friuli to be changed by the hands of mankind.

I’ll tell you about the hikes in the mountains as I live them, with a lot of joy and some fears.

Here you will find useful tips for hiking in Friuli Venezia Giulia and some local tips on where and what to eat. Because after all, what’s the point of doing so much effort if there isn’t a nice prize in the shape of a strudel?
