Hello people of the virtual world! Recently things have been rough to pretty much everyone in the real world, but I hope all of you are safe and healthy. As Bulgaria is in effective lockdown due to the virus just like many other countries these days, I’ll have the chance to catch up on posting photos from my trips around the world. Being trained as a theoretical physicist I am pretty much incapable of truly helping anyone, but I hope at least my photos will remind you of the beauty of the world and take your mind off the constant stream of bad news for a couple of minutes.
Today’s post will be from the Garda lake in the region of Lombardy and more precisely the little town of Limone. Right now this place is of course off limits, but when I visited around one year ago it was still attracting plenty of tourists with the usual Italian combination of stunning nature, rich local history and heavenly cuisine. A particularly curious piece of information about the inhabitants of Limone is that they are extremely long-lived due to a mutation in their genes that happened sometime in the middle ages protecting them from cardiovascular diseases. So they should be in a good shape to fight off the virus while we are taking this virtual tour of their surroundings.
