Driving through the hills of Toscana is one of those things one must do at least once in a lifetime. No matter the time of the year, the experience is simply amazing or, better said, simple thus amazing.
One of the most beautiful areas to experience the Tuscan feeling of beauty and peace is Val d`Orcia, near the city of Siena.
Finding myself here this Summer reminded me of those long and carefree days of my childhood, spent in the countryside, with my grandparents. The fertility of the land, the song of wind and birds, the sincere joy brought by a healthy rain on the faces of the farmers – all these are creating a feeling of security through the perfect balance established between nature and humans.
This is how I perceived Toscana and the fact that my visit happened when it was still wearing its Summer colours, made me also remember that I am and will always be a solar person, who loves sun and the joy it brings.
Toscana simply reminded me what life should really be like: simple thus amazing.
