Trip to Ovindoli, Abrizzo

November is a time to go in the forest and take chestnuts. Last year we gone in Calabry and this year we made long weekend in Abruzzo. First days of November we prepared our suitcase, put them in the car and gone in Abruzzo, in the small town Ovindoli. When we arrived (of course my husband did not ask before if there are chestnuts) it turned out that the town is on too high altitude from sea level (chestnuts grow at an altitude of approximately 700 meters) . The nearest place where they grow, 30 km from the city.

Иut that will not stop us)
Was unearthly beauty around, all the trees weared autumn colors (this is what I miss in Brindisi, where almost all of the trees are evergreen). We decided one day just to walk in the surrounding mountains.
So I present to you a few pictures that I took while walking.
