Listening to: Eddie Vedder, Golden State (from Water on the Road). I really, really like this version, the fact that's kinda improvised, EJ Barnes' laughter...everything is so spontaneous they sound like friends singing and playing the guitar on the beach <3
When I first started my blog my intention was to show you, along with some outfits, also some places and towns of my region; if you remember well, my very first motto was "I want to be an ambassadress of my land" (...pun intended). Needless to say, I failed miserabily, since I focused only on my style; this post is some kind of attempt to fix this thing (hoping that someone somewhere could be interested).
Today I'm showing you some photos I took in the lovely city of Gorizia, ladies & gentlemen. I know this city quite well, since the high school I attended was there (right in the city centre!); I therefore have very contrasting memories about these places, some sweet, some that I wish I forgot: as you might have experienced yourselves, teenage years kind of define who we are and basically also makes us deal with big jerks that hopefully we won't meet ever again.
Funnily enough (and contradictory enough) I met Debora, one of my bestest friends, in high school, on a bus; we were attending the same school but she's one year older than me so we actually didn't meet in class. You already met her, as I posted some photos here on the blog; she lives in Southampton, England now, and we can see each other in person only during her summer and winter vacations, that she spends here.
The last time we met- one day before she took her flight to return to Albion- we went to Gorizia to have a walk in the beautiful surroundings of the city Castle.
Just some historical facts about the Castle (more here):
- it dates back to 11th century
- it was renovated lots of times and changed owners several times (passing from the counts of Gorizia, Advocates of the Church of Aquileia, to the Habsburg rule, with the short Venetian and Napoleonic periods)
- among those who worked at the castle's defence structures we can also find Edmond Halley, who discovered the homonymous comet
- you can visit the interiors, that are actually quite nice
- right now they're doing some maintenance works all around the castle so you can spot some cranes and bulldozers there and it's a little surreal to see such modern/industrial things in an otherwise quite ancient area.
Also, I'm shooting with a new, better camera and I'm in LOVE. Better and better pictures, here I come!
I'd appreciate it so much if you told me what do you think about this typology of posts, so maybe leave a comment telling me if you liked it or not and if you want more or not?
