"ABRUZZI NATIONAL PARK, LATIUM SLOPE" motagna's Profile
I have always liked nature since I was a little kid. I have never liked toys. Once my mother gave me a car toy I did not know how to play with it and I broke its wheels. Toys could not give me what nature could give me. We used to climb trees,explore new areas. We had everything we needed. Nature stimulates your imagination so much. Now that I am an audult I love nature even more and I have no intention to part from it. I am now involved in a project that has to do with nature, rural tourism and adventure tourism. www.italyfarmstay.com.
I live in Abruzzi National Park, Latium slope.
I grew up in a farm, I live in a farm.
MY PASSIONS: NATURE, COUTRYSIDE, MOUNTAINS, THE OUTDOOR, EXPLORING CULTURES THROUGH PEOPLE.
I have not started a project that includes all I like the most and it is related to the farm.
In our farm, we grow our own produce for our own consumption . We also produce olive oil and wine. We have rabbits, sheep, goats, chickens, pigs, bees and a beautiful donkey (she is the mascot of the farm, everybody gets to love her).
We also grow a great variety of fruit and vegetables that play a big role in our diet.
We recently started a farmstay - we only have 6 rooms and we can only host a small group of people per time. The guests are from all over the world but mostly from English speaking countries. This is sustainable tourism, that aims to have a positive impact on our community. We also want to give the chance to our guests to devolop an awareness and a critical approach of where the food that they eat comes from. We also offer a wide variety of activities that gives them the chance to reach mental and physical wellness.
Horsebak riding, yoga, hiking, cooking classes, Italian language classes, visit to the cheese making shepherd.
As I have already said I like nature a lot. In my free time we go to search for truffles with dogs that give us the chance to experience mountain fully, the air is so pure up there that you really feel the difference.
It is very tiring you have to run fast to get the truffle before the dog eats it but it is good fun especially if you do it with a good friend. I don't even like truffles that much, I think that I prefer searching for them rather then eating them.
So when I have to take a decision, I need to think or I am sad that is where I go, after the walk I always feel better, I am strongly convinced that nature has always a positive effect on us. The wood loves me I know.
Nearby the place I live, there is a beautiful lake, it is called Lago Posta Fibreno. It is famous because of a floating island that changes its position when it rains.
This summer, my friend James from Irland came to visit me. As the weather was hot and sticky we went there everyday for a swim. The water is pretty cold and nobody goes for a swim just crazy people.
It is just for us.
