La Dolce Far Niente

Written by


You may have heard of the Italian saying La Dolce Far Niente or the sweetness of doing nothing. 

There’s something quite romantic about the life of mediterranean countries.  

And maybe it’s exactly that Dolce Far Niente which makes the difference.

Because to enjoy doing nothing is not common everywhere.

Especially in the fast everyday life in big cities…

But by the sea it’s different…

So we tried to bring La Dolce Far Niente to our Black sea coast :)

In the world of white noise from social media, tendencies and technologies relaxing is not scrolling through facebook, nor is it checking your email every few minutes. 

The sweetness of doing nothing is true relaxation.  

Then emotions surface and we learn to live for the current moment, for the current place, with the people around us or by ourselves if we’re alone.  

Little things become our Universe and we go back to a simpler existence where feeling good is all that matters.

Actually from time to time we all need some of this relaxation. 

Look through a magazine.

Walk around with no direction. 

Or just watch the beautiful summer sunset by the beach…

We have to find time for doing nothing because then we understand who we truly are, then we understand with all our senses the real sweetness of relaxation and only then the world may seem simple to us. 

And simply, we all want life to be figured out even for an hour :)

    How lovely! I definitely need a day to participate in La Dolce Far Niente. A day for Hubs and I just to wander on the beach with nowhere to be. Beautiful!
