ORRIDO DELLO SLIZZA IN TARVISIO – AN EASY WALK FOR ALL THE FAMILY

ORRIDO DELLO SLIZZA IN TARVISIO – AN EASY WALK FOR ALL THE FAMILY

In the area of ​​Boscoverde in Tarvisio, in my beloved Friuli, it is possible to walk along an alpine stream with a color so pure and blue that you can not believe it.

 

SOME INFO:

The stream Slizza during its hundreds of years of activity has created a real canyon in which it flows and where we can admire it to the maximum of its color. The Slizza starts from Sella Nevea, another border town and after having crossed the Rio del Lago valley reaches Tarvisio before finishing its run in Austria.

Last Sunday we had a few hours free so I, Simon and our dog Giorgino left for Tarvisio to enjoy the show of the Slizza surrounded by snow. Going down the gorge along the footbridge full of snow was not too easy but the show that we opened under our feet has repaid every effort made. The contrast of colors is incredible in every season but in winter with ice along the catwalks and in the caves makes you feel inside a fairy tale.

I suggest to do this walk from spring to the fall season because in winter could be dangerous for all the snow and ice on the footbridge.

THEN IS HAPPENED THIS:

During our walk I made some video with the DJI OSMO. It was more like a test because I bought this camera recently and I do not understand all the features yet. At home I created the video and with much effort of my internet line, I uploaded it on my youtube channel. Not even a week later, a journalist  of udine contacted me to share the video on their channels with reference to my site.

This obviously made me very happy, even if with hindsight … I could do it better and commit myself a little more, but as I said before, it was a test.

 

In any case, the video had more than 11 thousand views and more than 100 shares. You can imagine my mixed happiness surprise. In this way I was able to make myself known above all in my province and get in touch with many people who love the mountains and the adventure like me.

VEG: TAGLIOLINI PASTA IN ROCKET SALAD PESTO SAUCE, SMOKED RICOTTA AND WALNUTS

VEG: TAGLIOLINI PASTA IN ROCKET SALAD PESTO SAUCE, SMOKED RICOTTA AND WALNUTS

Are you looking a recipe for a delicious vegetarian pasta for your guests? You do not know how to reuse the wilted arugula in the fridge? Here’s a quick and easy and anti wastage pasta! Check the recipe.

 

 

I have a bad fault. I hate having the fridge too full.

We are only 2, plus Georgie our dog. in my opinion the fridge should not be too full because it would mean throwing away a lot of stuff.

We usually buy some zucchini, 2 aubergines, salad. What is there is used. We invent recipes based on what we have and not vice versa.

But unfortunately it also happens to us to be with vegetables that are going to pull the bucket, for example the rocket in a bag and then start these anti-waste recipes. In this case I converted the rocket into pasta sauce completing with the end of smoked ricotta and nuts magically appeared from the pantry. I swear: It’s so GOOD!

TAGLIOLINI PASTA IN ROCKET SALAD PESTO SAUCE, SMOKED RICOTTA AND WALNUTS || VEGETARIAN RECIPE

RECIPE:

Blend the rocket with olive oil, salt, pepper, a small piece of garlic, grana or tasty pecorino. Be careful not to put too much oil, add one thread at a time until it becomes a cream.

Cook the tagliolini and add them to the large pan with the rocket pesto and a bit of old cheese.

Prepare the portions in the plates and finish decorating your pasta with rocket salad pesto with grated smoked ricotta (delicious) and chopped nuts.

Veg recipe: Rice with chestnuts

Veg recipe: Rice with chestnuts

Easy and quick recipe “Rice with chestnuts”.

It is also possible to use Japanese browns  in the rice are  goodness!

 

Living in the countryside has its positive sides like getting all kinds of food during the various seasons.

A few days ago a friend gave me a bag full of Japanese browns, but this year the chestnut season was favorable and I had collected and ate many, I decided to invent something new.

I knew that there was a recipe for rice with chestnuts, but I had never tried and the result was amazing! Me and Simone at the first bite we looked with their eyes wrapped, saying “Good!” …. I admit we could not believe it!

I also discovered that chestnuts can be frozen and eaten later, the important thing is to peel them and put them in the freezer without skin. And when you just want to throw them into bubbling water. You will have chestnuts all winter!

 

Follow me on Facebook for other recipes and mountain adventures

RECIPE:

Boiled chestnuts are very good and bake in much less than cooking on a plate.

Peel the hard skin and put in a pan with cold water and 2 laurel leaves. From the time the water starts to boil, leave it 10 minutes. Pierce with a fork to test the consistency. Drain and peel them from the second peel. TIP: While peeling, keep them warm. in this way they will leap more easily.

Le castagne bollite, sono buonissime e stanno molto meno della cottura fatta su piastra.

RECIPE FOR THE VEG RICE WITH CHESTNUTS

In a frying pan put 450 gr of rice, 250 g of chestnuts (or more if you prefer) and 70 ml of cold water.

Cover with a lid and bring to a boil. Salts and leave on fire always at idle for 10 minutes. Then turn off and leave for another 13 minutes the rice to rest with the lid closed. Taste and the rice is ready.

I assure you. It’s great!

My Diary

FROM THE BEGINNING TO NOW. WHAT’S GOING ON IN MY LIFE

FROM THE BEGINNING TO NOW. WHAT’S GOING ON IN MY LIFE

Traveling full-time for work could sounds good but doing this for years and years is cool at the beginning.  At the end, it becomes just a job, so last month I decide to stop.

Quit the job that everyone wants for a normal work in a normal boring city is not really a story that everyone would like to read but this is my story, the story of a girl from a small town who has done it alone making her dreams come true.

Hello sweeties,

I’m writing this maybe more for myself than for the others.

One chapter of my life is finish and I still feel in the limbo trying to find my dimension in this “normal” life.

A BIT OF MY STORY

I always love the Bartending and when I was 20, after finish school and made some little experience behind the bar I decide to improve my skills and I moved ( alone LOL ) at first in London for learn English imagining that it could be useful to me and after in Milan “the cocktails world capital”.

In England I have been learning about team work and how to behave and talk among colleagues and costumers. Something that in Italy it is not taken into consideration too much.

DISCOVER MY PHOTO POST ABOUT THE STREET ART YOU WILL LOVE IN LONDON

In Milan I learned all I know about making drinks and the management of a cafe bar thanks to an excellent barman and a great boss and making specific courses.

After 5 years like this, by a stroke of luck I was called for an interview with Redbull and is start my “all around the world job”.

For my last 6 years I travelled for something like 30 weeks per year from Japan to India and USA, Canada, Singapore, China, all around Europe and more..

It was so cool and special to have the possibility to travel like this doing the job that you love.

I always feel so grateful for this and proud of myself too.

So now is coming the sad part of the story. Been always around the world it makes you lose all your family special moments ( and for an Italian that’s all). (more…)
