Few years ago back home for holiday I rented a car and with a special friend we have been discovering part of my region I never seen before, the only word to describe it is ….. wow!!! Places that were around the corner from me and never been before that were literally breathtaking, how could I have miss it all those years, when I was younger like many teenagers I wasn’t interested in the beauty of the planet that I’m temporary in but of the material, now older and wiser I’m more interested in the spiritual part of my journey.
One day we went to a town called Acquasanta Terme famous for hot springs and the mountains and sightseeing the village we met an old man very friendly and talkative, he told us about the history of the town and people, he was charismatic and energetic and you would listen him all day long, we asked how old he was and the answer shocked me, he was around 89 years old but the way he carried himself, the energy, the body posture looked like someone in his 60s, we had to go and he left too thinking he would walk home but he headed to his car an old Fiat 500, probably over 30 years old and driving he left, he told us the secret for such a long and healthy life, the spa, he believes that the hot springs is the reason why he look and feel strong and healthy, it could be but I wish that with or without spa I will be like him in the future.
We took a video of him while he was telling the history of the town, is in Italian but doesn’t matter because what I wanted was to show you this man, 89 years old.
