October 2nd, 2016.

Let’s go to the mountain!


I have just got back from 5 days in Italy. Whilst doing all my examinations, I took the time to enjoy my stay there.

So the very first day, I went for a walk in the mountain with my brother Davide, and my cousin Mila.ย 

It was last Monday. It was very warm down in Vicenza, around 26*C.

We left after lunch, and as we went higher and higher, the temperature went lower, and the clouds thickened around us.


We weren’t fully prepared for the colder weather, we saw people reaching the same area the previous day, and from their photos it looked sunny and warm.

For us, it was extremely foggy.


That meant that although we went up for the view, we couldn’t really see anything. But to be honest, I actually preferred it this way!


You couldn’t see very far at all, and as we kept walking, it got more intense. But when you did see something, it looked so lonely, yet beautiful, and peaceful.

I kept joking that it felt as if we were entering Silent Hill.

My memories of the movie aren’t so fresh, but I do have a feeling that the protagonist enters it by crashing her car, after she passes a bridge.

Well, we were in fact looking for a bridge as well.


It took us about 40 minutes walk to reach it, and when I saw it I got very excited!
It wasn’t too long, or too high, but being a Tibetan bridge, it was very wobbly, and if you did look down, it definitely gave a strange feeling.

Still, my brother is afraid of heights and managed to walk it twice, so it wasn’t too bad at all, but rather cool.


As I said, you couldn’t really get a view from there, but here is a photo of me and Mila on the bridge.

Oh man, when I go back to Italy I truly realise how pale I have gotten. Haha!


The bridge has been recently built because the path between two cities have fallen, and so to be able to walk from one to another, they decided to put this up instead.

On the way back to the car, on the same road we have walked to get to the bridge, the clouds started to fade a little, so we could eventually spot the nearest town.


I loved going on this hike; a nice walk and some fresh air helped me forget about the pain for the day.

The same morning I had been to a clinic to get a bunch of examinations done. So far I have received some results and nothing wrong shows with them, but I am waiting for allergy and intolerances info. I will keep you updated!

Oh, but on another note: Happy October! It’s one of my favourite months cause: 1. Halloween; 2. my birthday; 3. fall.

And by the way, my brother made a little video on this short excursion, so you can watch it here. I also vlogged the entire time I was in Italy, so my video will come on Thursday!

Have a relaxing Sunday.

    I was just going to say that the mist looked like something right out of a horror movie before you mentioned Silent Hill! It looks like such a beautiful yet somehow off-putting place, I think I know how people in horror movies feel when they want to venture into the scary abandoned house ๐Ÿ˜‚
    Have a lovely Sunday, Marzia!


  2. eilidhrose

    These images are absolutely stunning Marzia! I always love the effect of fog and mist when taking photographs, it looks so atmospheric. Looking at these images has really got me into the Halloween spirit๐ŸŽƒ It’s also very foggy in Glasgow today and it really feels like autumn now!
    I’m glad to hear your examinations went well and hope you’ve had a lovely day!
    With love, Eilidhrose x

    I miss your blog posts Marzia. Happy to see that you’re finally getting some answers for the problems that you’ve been having. I hope that you get better soon and I’m excited to see your Italy vlog. xxx

    It looks so beautiful and nice there! It felt like I was hiking with you while reading this. I always wanted to walk on a bridge like that. And happy October! It’s yours, Felix’s, and This Book Loves You’s birthday month! Fall is my favorite season too โค๏ธ I’m looking forward to that Italy vlog!


  5. nurselifebykarin

    I love hikes like this. Don’t you think it puts all your problems in perspective. Sometimes your life can seem so focused on one problem and you can feel trapped. But a long walk in nature can feel so nice and I feel the freedom haha. Sorry if it sounds stupid. :p Hopefully the tests will give you more answers and you find a way to keep the pain at a minimum. ^^

    I wish I could go visit Italy someday, Europe in general. I’ve never really been to anywhere in the west yet, it’s always around Asia when I go on holiday. Also, happy October! Hahaha we don’t have autumn here, but I’d throw all the pumpkin spiced lattes and dried orange leaves at you if I could.

    Hopefully the tests would come out great. Have a nice weekend ahead. <:


  8. Paula Watson

    Oh, nice ๐Ÿ™‚
    My cousin recently moved to Italy, to a town very near to Vicenza (it’s on the country side. Pozzoleone, if I’m not mistaken). I will tell her about that bridge, it seems really cool!


  9. emmadautzen

    I love the fall!

    I really can’t wait for the trees to change!
    That’s so pretty and peacefull. And the smell in the woods are so nice when it’s fall!

    I hope you get something out of the results!

    That looks like a great experience!I love hikes too and i also went to a hiking-camp last summer which btw was awsome!Have you ever been to a camp marzia?


  11. Ysobel Luna

    I prefer gloomy days! It gives me an excuse to stay in and curl up in bed with a warm drink and a good book.

    Love the mysterious air about these photos, and you look so nice in the last one. ๐Ÿ’•

    Hey Marzia,

    A couple of months ago, I saw in one of your videos a flat that was being renovated. Is this your and Felix’s flat? And is your current flat a rental? I loved how it looked and if you wouldn’t mind a blog post or a video about your housing situation or a tour of both flats would be so awesome!


  13. Evgenija

    Dear Marzia,

    what a nice time you had! That’s so lovely.
    Even though you can’t see much on the pictures because of the weather, I think that’s something what makes it even more interesting. I really want to see this place with my own eyes one day! No matter if it’s sunny or foggy. It looks very lovely!
    And it’s so great that you finally had your exmaninations. About time!
    Hopefully you finally find out what has been going on with you for such a long time. Thank you for keeping us updated!
    I’m definetly going to check out Davide’s video and I can’t wait for yours!
    Please stay safe and enjoy your day!

    Lots and lots of love from Germany,
    Evgenija โ™ฅ

    Aww your brothers vlog was lovely and all the way throught i was hoping that i would hear you saying something in Italian. I would love it if you make a video where you talk Italian with a subtitle. I know that you have one like that but it will be lovely if you do it again.


    1. misakitheneko

      She did her September favorites in Italian and put subtitles (it was a long time ago and I’m not sure if it was September favorites but it was a favorite video)


  15. sophiemaie

    This was such a lovely post!! The photos were so pretty and charming, I love when you find places that are completely still and silent, completely different from where I live which is always busy and moving. Xx


  16. Debora

    October is one of my favorite months too! Because fall is my favorite season ๐Ÿ™‚ there is something about the season and the cooler weather, the holidays fast approaching that make me generally happier at this time of year ๐Ÿ˜ Halloween is also like the best day ever! Horror movies are on television more which is also a plus in my book lol ๐Ÿ‘ป๐ŸŽƒ Have a wonderful day Marzia ๐ŸŒน Happy October ๐ŸŽƒ Hugs! ๐ŸŒผ๐Ÿ˜˜


  17. Angy

    Yes, this looks like Silent Hill haha!
    This moths is also one of my favorites, but november is my favorite too, for me :3
    I love fall and winter, and in november there are a fair called FIL, a literature and books fair. I think this year will come George R. Martin ๐Ÿ˜
    “Day of the Dead” in november is one of my favorites festivities of my country that I love.
    I’m glad for you are better! ^^ I hope you are better at all soon!


  18. mewxx

    That entire foggy mountain scenery is exactly what I think of when I imagine Autumn. It’s so pretty and spooky ^_^ I love October because it’s my birthday too and I love Halloween ^_^


  19. Rose

    I love your posts and the way you see the world!
    I hope you figure out soon what makes you feel sick.
    I can’t wait for your next video ๐Ÿ™‚


  20. Mel

    I’m really looking forward to see your new vlog! So excited! The photos you’ve taken are stunning! Hope you had a great time with your family in Italy and you enjoyed yourself. And I’m really glad to hear that the test results didn’t show anything bad and you’re fine so far. Although I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the doctors will find the reason for your sickniss! Hope you’re doing fine. All the love :>


  21. Madison Taylor

    I didn’t know your birthday was in fall! It’s my favorite season too! Thanks for sharing your hiking experience. I recently went to Colorado, and one of the places we went to was Pike Peak’s Summit. It was very foggy up there (in fact, it was snowing!) If you’re curious to see pictures from the summit, I just made a blogpost: http://www.madisontaylor.co/2016/09/exploring-colorado.html

    Have a relaxing Sunday as well, Madison

    Eu acho que vocรช QUER estar doente. Sabe porque te digo isso? Sinto as mesmas coisas. E tambรฉm acho. No meu caso acredito que seja depressรฃo. Marzia, acho que vocรช sofre do mesmo. Depressรฃo/Ansiedade


  23. Amanda

    Fall is my favorite too for those same reasons!! It’s such a beautiful time of year ๐Ÿ™‚ hope you get some answers soon and you can start feeling better!

    Perchรฉ ottobre รจ il mio mese preferito?Oggi รจ il mio compl’anno, amo halloween e impazzisco per i colori e le sensazioni che mi trasmette l’autunno ๐Ÿ˜



    Marzia, have you done an endoscopy? it is very important that you do. Maybe you are having refluxes.

    Hope you get well soon



  26. leathehatless

    The countryside of Italy is amazing! The bridge look super scary though… Oh and I love your brother’s channel, he is super creative. I will check the new video.

    Hope you get answers soon for your aches. Happy Sunday Marzia!


  27. Soma

    Hi Marzia. I love to watch your videos because you’re so approachable. After reading your entries and other responses it occured to me that there was no mention ofa B12 defiency. If you’re 100% vegan you should be taking it regularly. Also, if there is an underlying cause of the nausea and cramping such as IBS or even Crohn’s disease, the absorbtion of B12 can be decreased. Granted you only mentioned pain local to the stomach but if you have fatigue or lethargy as well I would look into this if you haven’t already. I’m not a medical professional at all but I do have family members who are vegans and my mother suffered from IBS for years bfore figuring out what it was. I understand how frustrating it can be but it sounds like you’re being a trooper and have a great support system as well. Best of luck in solving this….K.


  29. ramonatalk

    Hopefully you’ll get answers soon! Those pictures look amazing even with the fog (maybe especially because of the fog?). I’m glad you had something to do right after your tests that could take your mind off of it and that you enjoyed it.


  30. Andreia Ribeiro

    Hi Marzia ! First I’m sorry for this comment in here, I know it should be in another post, related to this issue, but if you don’t mind, I’ll write here ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have stomach issues; I have IBS. And when I first got sick, the doctors took ages to find out because they all said it was nerves. Turned out to be this bacteria, helicobacter pylori, who made several “wounds” in my stomach, leaving me with scars. And then they found out I had IBS. Well, great ! I’m better now, but believe me, the days where I feel absolutely no pain/nauseas (nauseas are the most frequent symptom I get) are very rare. And like you, I have emetophobia, which kind of difficult things. And when I’m bad, I try to relax. But I know how hard it is to deal with it every single day.

    I found out I had this bacteria through an endoscopy. And because I have this phobia, I made the exam with general anestesia.

    And I wanted to ask you, have you been tested for it?
    If not, you could ask for some tests. I think there are other exames beside endoscopy that you can do to find out if you have the bacteria, but endoscopy is the only way to see if it made any damage to your stomach.

    I hope you’re better ๐Ÿ™‚

    Kisses from Portugal.

    October is my favourite month too! I love halloween and it is also my birthday in October! I’ve just realised we are both Libras haha n_n . Glad you had a lovely time in Italy, seeing these pictures makes me want to go visit Italy again as the people, food and atmosphere there are great. Happy autumn and happy October Marzia โ™ก


  32. Liariel

    I wish I could pick a season to love, but where I live is summer all year. Actually we are in spring, but nothing changes.

    Someday I wish to see fall the way you see it.

    hope us all have a wonderfull month โค


  33. coooliocat

    Lol, I was just over in Italy as well as Greece! It was only my second time visiting overseas from Australia and I absolutely loved it (especially Italy haha).. I can’t believe you were over there at the same time, Marcia. I was meant to contact you beforehand as to ask questions and what to expect but I didn’t know how to contact you and just kinda forgot… Whoops! Your country is amazing btw ๐Ÿ‘Œ


  34. Laurie

    Its so hard being sick and knowing you really don’t feel well but nothing is “wrong” with the tests and everything ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I’ve been extremely tired the last year (like I can sleep from 10 pm to 11am, do a nap from 3 to 5 and still be exhausted at 9-10 to go back to bed. But nothing is wrong. Like I’m glad I’m ok but still I’m not “OK” and I have nothing to fix! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I hope they find out what’s happening to you!


  35. Ana Stevenson

    This looks amazing! I’m currently in Bergamo, but I’m not actually from here, so I’m finding it hard to discover places to walk. My friend and I went for a hike around the mountains but got a bit lost, and since we can’t speak any Italian, it seemed like a good idea to go back.
    I’m glad you could distract yourself from the pain and have a good time! I really hope that some results will clear things up for you soon.
    Happy October!! xx


  36. Hannah Challinor

    such a nice place and i agree, it looks so much nicer with the fog, it always seems so magical to me<3 hope everything goes well with the examinations, u have had this problem for way too long for it to be copable so good on u! ilysm u r so brave u r my inspiration ๐Ÿ™‚


  37. ansia

    Hi Marzia! That bridge looks pretty cool but also kind of terrifying to me (I’m afraid of heights too)! Happy October (this month is awesome indeed, especially because of Halloween! :P) , Great post and vlog as always, have a good day!
