A walk in Montone – Una passeggiata a Montone

Every time I bring a friend up to Montone, I see new things through fresh eyes. Today, it was rooftops and chimneys and campaniles. Ogni volta che porto a Montone un’amica, vedo qualche cose con uno sguardo nuovo. Oggi ho visto tetti e camini e campanili.

And a few little odd friends that live in a beautiful, modern sculpture just outside the walls of Montone. E anche ci sono pochi piccoli amici strani che vivono nella bella scultura moderna appena fuori le mura di Montone.

I had the pleasure to spend the day in Montone with a fellow blogger and new friend. Janine writes the blog Destination Umbria and her passion for Umbria, especially Perugia, is shown beautifully through her own photographs. I hope she realizes her dream of living here one day.

Ho avuto il piacere di trascorrere la giornata a Montone con un altra blogger e un’amica nuova. Janine scrive il blog Destination Umbria e la sua passione per Umbria, specialmente Perugia, e’ mostrata in bel modo attraverso le sue foto. Spero che realizza il suo sogno di vivere qui un giorno.

Below are more treasures that Montone gave us today.
Sotto ci sono piu’ tesori che oggi ci ha dato Montone.

  1. Great photos Nina, thanks for sharing. I hope Janine had a brilliant time and that she does realise her dream to live in Italy one day :)

  2. Nina neppure io ho mai visto questa scultura……quando ci vediamo mi spieghi dove si trova…..le foto sono bellissime

  3. Love the dual language…coming from an Italo-Americana who has been trying for years to learn the language and get beyond “See Giuseppe run!”

  4. We had a perfect day Nina. Thank you for taking such good care of me…It was such a pleasure. Meeting you was like seeing an old friend again. It’s an Umbria thing I think! Kindred spirits!! The photos are beautiful. Un abbraccio stretto. Jxx

  5. So hard to believe you won’t be here after this week. But you’ll be back, that much we both know! Be well, my friend, and we’ll stay in touch. xoxo.

  6. I am so glad you found my blog, left me a comment and decided to follow, thankyou Nina, now following you back. I have added your blog to my Italy blogroll. All thanks to your love of Peonies that you found me I guess.

  7. I’m going to add your blog to my blogroll as well! And you’ve inspired me to post some Peonies photos!

  9. I met Janine too, it is amazing how a blog can bring people together.

    • Ah, you’re the friend she visited in Lucca! It is amazing how we’re coming together and meeting through blogs. Your blog is beautiful, I’m following it now. I also work part time for a company in Melbourne, so I’m getting more Australian connections!
