Turin Part 57

Turin, my hometown. It’s one of the most underrated cities in Italy. Full of history, Turin was known as Augusta Taurinorum in roman times and it was one the biggest cities in the empire. A noble family, the Savoy expanded and improved Turin; and in 1861 it became the first capital of Italy with the Savoy family ruling as kings.

I am so happy to have finally showed this beautiful city to my boyfriend. 



∟ One only was mightier in arms among the marchwardens of Thingol at that time than Túrin, and that was Beleg Strongbow; and Beleg and Túrin were companions in every peril, and walked far and wide in the wild woods together.

And as they waited one came through the trees, and they saw that he was a tall Man, armed, clad in black, with a long sword drawn; and they wondered, for the blade of the sword also was black, but the edges shone bright and cold. Woe was graven in his face, and when he beheld the ruin of Ivrin he cried aloud in grief, saying: ‘Ivrin, Faelivrin! Gwindor and Beleg! Here once I was healed. But now never shall I drink the draught of peace again.’
