What Are We Missing?

Since humans first stood and walked on two feet, walking has been a very reliable means of transportation, maybe the most reliable. It is true walking was more difficult in the past and that gender, social status and even fashion played a huge role.

Real version? This beautiful boulevard is the Dalmatian coast, your neighbours are Split ad Trogir surrounded by tourists and your humble house is Kaštela.

Laurisilva of Madeira
