Adieu to disappointment and spleen.
What are men to rocks and mountains?
―  Jane Austen

First and foremost this petite blog is meant as a thematic photo showcase. What is more, it also features trip reports, documenting great moments, experienced alone or in pleasant company, climbing mountainsides, perambulating umbrageous forests, resting on extensive high plains or descending rolling slopes. The core region of these wanderings are the Apennine Mountains of central and southern Italy.


Additionally, the blog’s archive provides a number of itineraries to some of the most prominent peaks of this region, as well as classic and alternative routes to some minor peaks, – betimes ‘minor’ by the name alone.
