random walk – chiusa

Untitled

I’m thinking the next Italian trip will be Puglia but I loved Bolzano so much that I’m considering redoing this trip. We had one rainy day in Chiusa so dad and I walked around town trying to capture the convent shrouded in mist. We walked uphill until the path ended, walked on grass until we reached a highway, crossed the highway and ran up someone’s private property
