The first month went by building the soundtrack (look at the previous post) that I had to shorten to make it fit for each Vtour I will post. Then arrived the second month fighting with myself, what I don’t like about me and technology.
Imagine the change I underwent from walking from 12 to 17 km a day open air (ca. 7,5 -10,5 miles ), being always with different people from all over the world, to being completely isolated with my boyfriend, luckily in a large flat with a terrace, and with my computer that became the only mean to communicate with the outside world.
So these two months saw me on a chair for almost the whole day.
We always got organic fresh food delivered home, so I need it only to cook to have a wonderful dinner and we got no excuse to go to the supermarket (one of the few places around our homes we were allowed to). I found also a historical wine store in Rome that delivers home to have good regional wines accompany our meals.
In our region we were also allowed to run/walk individually around our house block for sport.
I do it almost every day arriving to 6 Km pro day (ca. 3,73 miles). I felt like a hamster running but that 40 minutes of fresh air are essential to me to keep mentally and physically healthy.
So I’ve been treating me fairly but when I have a target I go crazy for it.
So I’m still now totally buried in video editing, virtual tours and video guides.
The video that I’m posting today is very short, no pain but only gain, and I think it resumes the emotions running through my body and mind during the turning of it after the total lock-down.
May 4th was the first day we could do individual sport in the whole province. Suddenly I was afraid to leave my home surroundings. But, I took the challenge: 8 km (ca. 5 miles) running through my neighborhood, E.U.R. around the most famous buildings, mostly erected by Mussolini for the International exposition of 1942 that never took place.
On May 5th the challenge went further and I took my bicycle, my favorite mean of transportation, and enjoyed the bike lane along the Tiber river, our river and the reason why Rome was grounded here, to ride to the center and back (33 km, ca. 20,5 miles).
I didn’t fix well my camera on the bike, so I took from what it was shot only a few scenes, but they give you a clear idea of the emotion and the beauty and the sense of it. Enjoy a bit of freed Rome after a total lock down!
Next I have to learn to simplify and to be faster…
