Hot town, summer in the city

Hot town, summer in the city

31 Augustus 2017 On the road again… Initially we planned to only visit Ljubljana, and not include Zagreb in our plans. But looking at Zagreb, we figured that, perhaps, we should pay it a quick visit too. So today, we did two cities in a day. Ljubljana is a mere 50km from Lake Bled, and…

30 August 2017 Legend has it that, a long time ago, a young widow lived in the castle of Bled. Robbers had killed her husband, and politely threw his body into the lake. She was obviously rather devastated, so decided to do a good deed by gathering all her gold and silver and cast a…

29 August 2017 Today we saw nature at its very best. We left Dobrovo after a good breakfast. Before we started, I thought of challenging everyone to see how long we could hold out NOT saying how beautiful the views are. Before I could even suggest this, someone had already started commenting. It would have…

28 August 2017 If it’s Monday, it has to be… well…. Slovenia, eventually. We left Verona as early as possible, and took the autostrada, so we could get to Udine as quickly as possible. Our traveling partners have family in this very lovely Italian town, which just so happens to be en route to our…

27 August I’m failing to understand why Verona has to be this hot. The weather forecast for the day is 36! Our plan for the day was just to act like we live in Verona. Stroll around in the old town. Have lunch in an Osteria, and then catch up on some culture. Verona remains…

26 August 2017 Travel days. Humph. We woke up early (yes – it can happen!) to visit the Rialto market. We were so early that half the stalls were not even open yet, which, of course, provides a whole different view of this busy market. Boxes and boxes of fish, fruit, vegetables, and more, are…

25 August 2017 It’s a relief to report that all slept well. There is no ways that you can attempt the crowded maze that is Venice, without some renewed energy. Our aim today was to see a different view of Venice. Sure, you could go see all the tourist attractions, and be trampled to your…

24 August 2017 People should really know better than to challenge me in any way or form. Even a vague hint towards an excuse to travel can end in… well…. a travel experience . And so, when a friend suggested that I should organize a tour for us, I most definitely took it to heart….

This entry is part 16 of 16 in the series Port, with a touch of Paella - Portugal 2015

20/09/2015 Officially our last day, and I am really pleased that it is in such a special place. For once, we were up rather early, despite not having slept all that well, with tourists partying until the small hours of the morning. At some stage, a Spanish man was yelling at them to stop. This…
