Five Pleasures

Posted on: Wednesday, 17 July 2013

It’s no exaggeration when I say that my complete lack of decisiveness is what brought me here. Yes that’s right, my own vague personality traits are what motivated me to start my own blog. Making a decision with confidence has never been one of my finest abilities (to say the least) but I think starting ‘Via del Mare’ is going to be one of those decisions I will never regret.

I’ve always placed a lot of emphasis (or maybe it’s pressure?) on how I want my life to pan out. Of course I’m aware that you can’t control everything in life, however sometimes I catch myself dreaming of my future whilst letting the present pass me by. Like most people I have big dreams but like the spanish say 'que sera, sera' (what will be, will be). So now I have created my blog and finally I am going to take the time to appreciate the little things in life, even if it is cliché.  

To give you some background ‘Via del Mare’ is a secret street in a miniature town south of Italy where I first conceived of the idea to make my life a living piece of art. This is my journey, one dedicated to the simple and greatest pleasures of life.

So to start ‘Via del Mare’ off I am going to introduce a little segment called ‘Five Pleasures’. It’s as simple as it sounds. I’m so happy to finally be doing this.

    1. Hi Liz! The first photo is in Terracina, a little town in the south of Italy situated on the mediterranean- it is my family's hometown and if you get the chance you should visit, it will take your breath away! The second photo in my five pleasures post is at Long Reef Headland in Sydney...I hope you like it :)
