"There is much beauty that we fail to see through our own eyes teeming with life forms that give us that perception of our reality. Leaves on the trees blowing gently in the wind, or scarily, the waves pounding through high surf, or lightly on a warm summer’s day; that opportunity to sit or swim in the water on a white beach. That comfort to shout, “The universal conscious do you hear me? I am alive, guide me dear logos towards the path of rightnesses.” Earned what has been kept, no longer to be absorbed into a life filled with cold damn winds and that stubborn fog clouding my vision with nothing but darkness."

...Maybe it would've helped if they had a cartographer with them! (or not, knowing my own lack of sense of direction!) ha ha
Thank goodness, someone else who has to turn the map round to point it in the right direction . To me, this story shows all the signs of having been made up by a follower of the journalistic persuasion. An unnamed "Swedish couple"? Attributed to "an Italian official" or alternatively a "spokesman for Carpi town-hall"?
Nicodemus's forecast for 2010: On a slow news-day reports will be received of a Norwegian couple who wishing to drive to Carpi arrived in Capri, as a result of entering the wrong name in their GPS receiver.
