WPC: Wonder lust – Wander list

Yes, I have my wander lust and list too. These are just some of the spots I have crossed out.

My list is getting additions on an hourly basis, as soon as I see something appealing on blogs or Tweeter or Facebook. Normally I only include a destination if it’s under 3 hours’ drive from our home in south Tuscany. It’s always such a thrill to place a search in Google Maps, link to Home and wait to see how long it takes.

For example, I’ve just added Biancane Geothermal Park, 1h31min. Yeah.

What are some of the places that lurk in there and wait for the right moment?

I might not visit the Michelin-starred “Il Silene” in Seggiano any day soon but I know it takes an hour and a half to reach it. You never know. Trattoria da Maria Moretti in Pereta, on the other hand, takes just 36 minutes. The menu is fixed at 25 EUR but if you believe the word of mouth, it’s very worthwhile. Awaiting hungry visitors to go and try it out.

There are mysterious gardens, such as The Garden of Sounds by Paul Fuchs in Roccastrada (1h07min) or the garden “Viaggio di Ritorno” in Buriano (51min). There is Perugia (2h27min), which I still haven’t seen, and seven towns around it. There is the Lago dell’Accesa lake near Massa Marittima (1h01min) and a waterfall near Terni called Cascata delle Marmore (1h48min). There is Sammezzano Castle (2h36min) with its mind-boggling 365 decaying rooms in Oriental style, but it is not open to general public. There is Villa Lante in Viterbo (1h10min) and the towns of Bagnoregio, Caprarola and Orte in the same direction. There are lots of gelato places in Rome on that list, and if you go to Venice, I’ve got a bookshop just for you.

And this is just a very small portion of it. Even if I turn into a vampire this moment, I doubt I could visit all these places before the end of the world.

Here are images from 20 places that used to be on this list but have now been done, until I return.

    1. Thank you, Joey. It will get hot but not yet, right now it’s the best. When it’s hot I’m inside under in fixed climate, you’ll see – no new nature photos for entire summer. 😀
