#EPICOEurope - Via Francigena
From Rome to Jerusalem along the ancient pilgrim paths 'A journey of a thousand miles always begins with a single step'. The act of reaching a far destination on foot shows the will to test oneself strength investing some of your energy and time to get deeper into a man's soul. The time spent walking may really change your life. The Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism proclaimed 2016 as the National Year of Walks, to promote the heritage of cultural, artistic and naturalistic itineraries that can be discovered walking or riding on a bike.
With this idea in mind we traveled on the Southern bit of the #ViaFrancigena : the one which used to lead Christian pilgrims from Rome to Jerusalem. In Italy, the path retraces the old Appian Way, the Roman road connecting the Capital to Brindisi, where pilgrims used to get on a ship to Jerusalem. This photo feature is not just an historical revive of this 'cammino' (walk): it also reports how those cities and territories are living now.
#tbt to 2 wks ago at the #saltonsea .....the Salton Sea is one of those weird places I've always wanted to go to, esp since I love #decay . Most structures (if still standing) are completely left for #ruin . I need to go back.
Fun fact: the sea was a resort area in the 1950s, but became abandoned once the lake got too polluted w/ runoff and the salt levels rose. There are dead fish everywhere that wash up on shore. It smells horrible, acrid....and the geothermal activity in the area is very high.
Kimler geldi kimler geçti, milyarlarca hikaye yazıldı ama hepsi toz oldu uçtu... Her anın tadını çıkartıp hayatın özünü bulmak bu yüzden elzem çünkü toz olup uçacağız bir gün... Too many lived but nothing is left, all of it have become dust in the wind. So we better live the moment and touch the source of life when we have the time... #ev#house#home#yıkıntı#ruin#ağaç#tree#rotten#kırsal#rural#köy#village#kuru#dry
