Time Travel

No marina, no hotels (none that’s visible anyway), no tourist industry. Only a few fishing boats. It looks like a peaceful, sleepy and quaint little village. The ancient cathedral, Convento di Monte Carmelo, is about the only recognisable building in the picture, plus probably the big white building, which is the Villa Chiara today, a B&B.

The story to the card is actually simple: Back in 1977 me (10 years old), with my parents, my two younger brothers and my auntie were on vacation in Borghetto Santo Spirito – the village west of Loano.
