Friday Funnies: Italian couple opts out of the property market

by Jay Garcia 0 comments

A couple in Italy have stepped away from the grind of modern life and home ownership by living on a remote mountainside for six months.

According to The Telegraph, the 50-year-old man and his 24-year-old girlfriend left their home in north-east Italy, dropped off their daughter with relatives and headed to a mountain range that borders Slovenia.

Local residents began circulating rumours of a ‘strange couple’ living on the mountain, with hunters spotting their makeshift camp and growing concerned about their emaciated appearance.

The pair was found by forest rangers and local police under a hanging rock, surviving off berries with their sleeping bags and a small fire to keep them warm in freezing mountain temperatures.

“They weren't hermits or primitive – they were just two people who had decided upon a certain lifestyle. One which they had been living for some time,” a forest ranger said.

A check-up by medical workers revealed that the couple were in reasonable health despite being ‘a bit cold and hungry’.
