Listening to the “sound” of silence can have a priceless value. Leaving contaminated and defeaning places to create an escape in the calm of monastic cells, or losing all sense of time while visiting sacred places and ancient parish churches, on foot, through peaceful nature. This mood experience can transform itelf into a walk of self discovery, a perfect restorative journey. The meaning is given by those whom, looking for something magical, want to fully experience spiritual emotions, both religious and secular. With silence to enlighten the path.
Josefine, at a certain stage, realized that to discover the direction to take, she should leave behind some weight at home and bring with her just a few things together with a sweet disposition for walking with a comfortable rucksack. Alone, walking along the multitude of paths of Garda Lake, she wanted to experience the excitement and at the same time, the terror that loneliness can embrace, finding out the appeal and that inner part of herself she did not know. Sleeping in charming abbeys, the silence and the intimacy of the places let her regain the strength. Cloisters to discover, sanctuaries in which you can recover memories of saints and pilgrims, have opened a window into herself. Josefine has definitively left Germany and now lives here.
