titolo: Backpack? Check! Life outdoors
abstract: Spring makes us want to be out in the open. It's a green light for picnics, country outings and trips out-of-town. On foot or by bike.
The open air is packed with spring colors, scents and breezes. There's no better time to plan out-of-town trips than the months of May and June, discovering destinations reachable by bike or even on foot. Parks, lakes and rivers are perfect for organizing sack lunches, country outings and bike rides. Castles and manor houses are dwellings worth visiting while sea and mountains offer immediate wellbeing for body and mind.
The Internet is a gold mine of suggestions and ideas about where to go. For example, you can consult the web pages of Italian Environment Fund (Fondo Ambiente Italiano [FAI] - fondoambiente.it) and FAI Spring Days(giornatefai.it) to learn about and admire the big and small “jewels” of our country. The WWF also suggests spending a day immersed in nature via its own Eco-friendly Oases throughout Italy; more information may be found at wwf.it/oasi. Sportier and fitter types can sign up for an adventurous trekking experience or mountain climbing, exploring, for instance, initiatives such as those of zaininspalla.it.
And there you have it - the backpack makes the fundamental adventure companion for spending a day out in the open, in complete freedom and comfort. Indispensable characteristics: durable, lightweight, water-resistant, functional. Carpisa's Spring-Summer collection offers practical and colorful backpacks made from high-tech and, naturally, fashionable fabrics. You've got the Federica model, made of robust material and seeded with small rock style polished studs (available in electric blue, fuchsia, black and beige), or Gloria, in colorful black and blue ethnic-floral print nylon. The Vanessa backpack is dedicated to the more romantic, made of colorful red, black and blue tone, floral print nylon. And then there's the Summer model for a young & easywear look, available in solid black, beige and blue nylon, beautified by painted details.
So… get your backpack on and go!
