Wow, what a beautiful sight on a not so small village on a hill! :heart_eyes:

Memories kick in… :blush:. For my mother grass stained Jeans weren’t that much of a problem. It was even worse… I was always running with the boys outside, so my Jeans were torn and my mother had to iron on all those ugly patches to cover the holes. @Lisa_S do you remember those patches? Another Symbol for my youth, like the Zitronenfalter :blush:.
Beautiful village up there, reminds me on a stay at the tuscany coast. Mare e monti, I love that!

@CATMAN62 @Lisa_S @Helen0609 This is the village I was born :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: it’s in the Ligurian Coast in the North of Italy, only a few kilometers from the Cinque Terre area…I took this picture yesterday morning as I was walking up to my parents’ house…so many lovely memories…things are changed though, and that most steep down stone and earth staircase which leaded to the woods is not there anymore…we were running down soo fast and free! I could spend the all afternoon describing how many things have changed there!

What a lovely place to grow up, Silvia! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

It’s good to preserve loads of good memories about the places we grew up. By that, we kind of keep the charmes in us, even though they changed. It’s probably the same thing anywhere. Nevertheless, in our memory we can cherish these things and some changes are also quite good. :slight_smile:

Oh yes, Andrea! Remember them all to well. I also was more like an outside kind playing in the dirt. :rofl: These are good memories as well, but regards the cloths I’d rather not to look on pictures of these days. Or even the haircuts. :woozy_face: :rofl:

@SILVIA @Lisa_S In Germany they called it “Rundschnitt” (roundcut). Fitted for everybody. Didn’t matter, if boy or girl :joy:. My husband and I compared pics out of that time :see_no_evil:. Same kind of clothing, same haircut, fashion was awful back then…

@Helen0609, at least “rundschnitt” sounds better then the Dutch word for it: “bloempot” (flower pot) :smiley:

@Helen0609 @LadyOfTheCastle

Love the bloempot! :smiley: In our area it was called “Topfschnitt” as in put a pot on the head, cut around the edges, that’s it. :rofl:

@Lisa_S, yep, that’s the same sophisticated technique as the flower pot :rofl:

Wow! Amazing photo, Silvia! And you were born there?! :astonished: :exploding_head: :heart_eyes: Absolutely unfathomable from a kiwi tucked away in the underside of the world where our towns are so plain and boring! :yawning_face: :sweat_smile:
Super cool and love your shared stories above with @Helen0609 & @Lisa_S - made me laugh! :joy: :blush:

@LadyOfTheCastle @Lisa_S To be honest, most people actually called it “Topfschnitt”, but I remember being brought to the hairdresser as a child and my mother ordered the “Rundschnitt” there, maybe their way to disguise this kind of “bodily harm” :rofl:

@nzmetal

If it helps, Jeff, I can assure you that lots of Europeans have NZ top on their wishlist for travelling :heart_eyes:. It must be such a beautiful country. Everything but boring. It’s hard to keep up with Italian cities and villages anyway…give us Germans some Italian flavour and we are melting like ice in the sun :blush: :sun_with_face:.

How happy I was when the 80s finally came to an end and the 90s arrived! :smiley: :metal:
