Blessed and grateful with lots of holidays and traveling every year. Just counting that last year I go on holidays with my family are more than 30 days in total. And this year I'm hoping for having family holidays at least as many days as last year.
Sometimes success is better measured in smiles received, giggles heard, hands held, be with your family and shared happy moments.
The Valley of the Mills or “Valle dei Mulini” is a group of abandoned brick buildings nestled in the deep valley floor of Sorrento, Italy. For more than 600 years, these mills supplied flour for Naples and the surrounding regions, producing over a million bushels of wheat every year. Its location along the river Vernotico also gave it a role in storing water during periods of drought, making it an important source of sustenance in the region.
Even after a huge earthquake caused a volcanic eruption which devastated the Mediterranean area, the mills still stood, suffering only a deep crack in the rock foundation of the buildings. However, the 1940’s the mills were completely abandoned as the milling of flour was shifted to pasta mills and the onset of taxes overtook the business. Since then, nature has been reclaiming the land, the Valley of the Mills is slowly fading out of sight. 📷💖
