Our getaway to Italy started out very promising. That was until we got completly lost.
But let me start from scratch. We woke up early in the morning to avoid any possible traffic or obsticle down the road. Just after 20 minutes driving we got stuck in traffic, never mind the early time. But with Carly Rae Jepsen on the radio, the time went by much faster. I love how this song brings everyone's dancing moves on the table, no matter the circumstances. So after an hour driving, we made a first stop to fill the belly with some "good old" pump food, as in triangle chicken sandwiches. Not so good, but it is a shame to miss it. It has becomed like our tradition while driving twoards our goal.
Anyways, after a couple of hours we then finally made it to Mestre - an Italian city, where our plan was to park the car, and let the train take us to the well known water city Venice. Only that the train was completely full for nex two hours and we then had to drive all the way to Venice with car. I've been to Venice quite a few times, but I never drove or even pay attention to the roads and neighter did my friends, so the trip was a liiiittle bit extended, but in the end, after one too many missed roads we finally made in to the main parking lot. The clouds were in this scary dark colour, and the wind was relentless and just as we touched the ground of the water city, it started to wildy rain. It was soo scary! Papers, umbrellas in the air, people finding their shelter to hide and it was soo cold. Luckily the storm lasted only for about 15 minutes, and right after we started to explore the beautiful streets and the architecture of this interesting city. It never get's boring, the people, the restaurants. And those amazing flower balcony's and laundry hanging right next to the strong walls. A great thing to observe.
After all that walking we than stopped in a cute nice restaurant to refill our energy. I had a chicken. Again.
So the city was great, we had so much fun, but it was time to go relax. Our next stop was Lignano. But I'll tell you more about it in the next post.
Have you ever been to Venice? Did you like it as much as I did? I just hope you haven't had all that troubles finding it as we did ;)
