“As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness.” Henry David Thoreau
One question that I have gotten a lot over the course of the trip is how I deal with missing home and the accoutrements that go with it. The thing I tell them is that sometimes you have to just stop somewhere for a while and chill out for a few days, and that was what Lipari was for me.
I will be doing a separate post about my excursion to Stromboli for my first trip to an active volcano, but it was especially good to have some time to recuperate from the strenuous day. I took some time to visit the little town on the coast but also a couple of days where I did nothing but work on images, read a book, and stare out at the gorgeous view.
Here are some photos from my time on Lipari.
