Lampedusa, un’isola di cui innamorarsi – Italiano

Ciao miei tesori, come sapete ho appena trascorso una vacanza sulla meravigliosa isola di Lampedusa, e giá con la nostalgia nel cuore ve la voglio raccontare. A partire dalle calette di acqua cristallina e di sabbia bianca, dove le tartarughe marine, divenute simbolo dell’isola, vengono a deporre le uova. Nuotare tra le acque trasparenti mentre i pesciolini sfrecciano accanto a te indisturbati, il turchese del mare che si fonde con l’azzurro del cielo, ti fa sentire in totale armonia con la natura. Tutto a Lampedusa è molto caratteristico, poiché le infrastrutture per il turismo sono state realizzate nel rispetto del suo ecosistema. Si ha così la sensazione di vivere a pieno l’isola e di mimetizzarsi tra i suoi abitanti, persone solari e di cuore. Il cibo è a dir poco delizioso, frutto di una cucina generosa di sapori e delle materie prime d’eccellenza che il Mediterraneo ci regala. Io – che generalmente non sono una buona forchetta – ho (divorato) assaporato con entusiasmo tutti i piatti tipici della cucina lampedusana. Il clima è mite e piacevole in ogni momento della giornata: anche quando il sole è allo zenith soffia una leggera brezza che profuma di mare. Il centro di Lampedusa è rappresentato da Via Roma, il corso sul quale si trovano locali e boutique, buon cibo, buona musica, e non mancano occasioni per fare un po’ di shopping. Mentre la mia piccola principessa costruiva castelli di sabbia o nuotava con papino mi sono dedicata alla lettura. Tre romanzi dell’autore siciliano Antonio Lo Vasco mi hanno appassionato e coinvolto, trattando con delicatezza argomenti scottanti come la violenza sulle donne e i delitti di mafia. Non voglio trascurare la situazione per cui Lampedusa è divenuta famosa attraverso i notiziari: lo sbarco di rifugiati di guerra. La disinformazione sull’attuale stato dei fatti ha influenzato negativamente l’afflusso di turisti. Ciò nonostante, la benevolenza e la compassione esternata dagli abitanti dell’isola per le tragedie di cui sono stati testimoni mi hanno ancor più convinta di quanto questo piccolo paradiso sia speciale.
La mia risposta alla domanda con cui vi ho lasciato nel post Anche le fashion blogger vanno in vacanza è un sonoro Sí. Complice la connessione internet pressochè assente, sono riuscita a staccare la spina completamente. Quindi scusate se vi ho un po’ trascurate, ma da oggi sono di nuovo qui per voi! Un abbraccio carico di energia positiva!!

Lampedusa, an island to fall in love with – English

Hello my treasures, as you know I have just had a wonderful holiday on the island of Lampedusa, and with melancholy in my heart I’d love to share it with you. Starting from the coves of crystal clear water and white sand, where turtles, which have become a symbol of the island, come to lay their eggs. I indulged in the clear waters while small fishes darted next to me undisturbed, the turquoise sea and blue sky beautifully merging. I felt in total harmony with nature. All in Lampedusa is very distinctive, because the infrastructure for tourism were made in respect of its ecosystem. This gives you the feeling of living the island to the fullest and blending in with its inhabitants, cheerful hearty people. The food is nothing short of delicious, as it happens when tasty recipes meet the excellent Mediterranean ingredients. Generally I am not a big eater . Well, I (devoured) tasted enthusiastically all the typical dishes in Lampedusa. The climate is mild and pleasant at all times of the day. Even when the sun is at its zenith a gentle breeze blows from the sea. The uptown and downtown of Lampedusa consist of Via Roma, the main street where you will find lounge bars, small boutiques, good food, good music, thrift shops. While my little princess was building sand castles or swimming with daddy I indulged in reading. I was enraptured by three novels by Sicilian author Antonio Lo Vasco, treating gently but truthfully the harsh topics of violence against women and crimes of mafia. I do not want to overlook the situation that made Lampedusa famous through the news: the landing of war refugees. Misinformation on the present state of facts wrongly decreased the affluence of tourists. The benevolence and compassion voiced by local people for the tragedies they have witnessed is another sign of how special this small haven really is.
My answer to the question closing my post Fashion bloggers go on vacation too is a resounding Yes. Thanks to a hardly existent Internet connection, I was able to pull the plug completely. Sorry for neglecting you for a good cause! Now I’m all here for you! A heartfelt hug full of positive vibes!
