Hallstatt, Austria 🇦🇹 The fairy tale lake town you need to visit😍
Hallstatt is a part of the UNESCO World Heritage region and is believed to be the oldest still-inhabited village in Europe.
Up to the 19th Century, the only possible way to reach Hallstatt was either by boat or via very narrow trails.
Who would you visit this place with?
Today at work my boss referred to my upcoming departure as the biggest news of the year after Brexit!!!
Initially I thought this was a compliment as he needed to put plans in place ready to lose such an EXCELLENT member of staff, but then I realised he voted leave....
So maybe that's not what he meant after all...
🎨Bonaparte valica il Gran San Bernardo
David dipinse cinque versioni di questo dipinto.
Napoleone viene rappresentato al momento del suo attraversamento del Colle del Gran San Bernardo con l'armata che lo seguirà nella vittoriosa seconda campagna d'Italia.
Bonaparte viene presentato in uniforme di generale, con sul capo un bicorno gallonato d'oro, armato di una spada alla mamelucca, mentre sulle spalle si trova un mantello gonfiato dal vento che si avvolge attorno alle sue spalle. Monta un cavallo e con la mano sinistra si aggrappa alle briglie. Tutta la scena è rivolta verso lo spettatore ed il generale indica la direzione con la sua mano destra. In secondo piano, dei soldati risalgono la montagna, portando con loro un cannone. In basso a destra si trova un tricolore che fluttua nell'aria. 🔷🔶🔷🔶🔷🔶🔷🔶🔷🔶🔷
🎨Napoleon Crossing the Alps
David painted five versions of this painting.
Napoleon is represented at the time of his crossing of the Great Saint Bernard Pass with the army that will follow him in the victorious second campaign of Italy.
Bonaparte is presented in a general's uniform, with on his head a gallon bicorn of gold, armed with a Mamluk sword, while on his shoulders is a cape inflated by the wind that wraps around his shoulders. He mounts a horse and with his left hand clings to the bridle. The whole scene is directed towards the viewer and the general indicates the direction with his right hand. In the background, soldiers climb the mountain, bringing a cannon with them. At the bottom right is a tricolor that floats in the air.
