Photos: Bibione and Venice, Italy
(See the photos in the gallery down below the post) Back in Stockholm, longing for sun and good espresso, I’m trying to find at least one of the two at the Mocco café down the street. It’s doing all right, and helps me keep focused while writing this post. Not bad.
I’ll sum up the week in northern Italy with these words: sun, fun, beach, espresso, red wine, gondola, steak, pizza, delicious, lovely, my-high-school-Italian-works-fine, new friends and more delicious. First we spent four days in Bibione, a tourist town on the seaside. Hotel pr0-tip: Villa del Mar – friendly, affordable, has a jacuzzi and gym on the roof top terrace and is located around 100 m from the beach.
After that we took the train to Venice, where my Mom has had her photo taken by her favourite tavola just on the right bank of the Rialto bridge – once every ten years for forty years. We were there when I was 15-ish. It is sad how quickly the water level is making its way up the stairs. A nice place for an evening meal, especially if you’re into fish, is the Trattoria alla Madonna – it’s been there for roughly 60 years and still going strong.
Two hours after I landed back home I went off to Berlin with Nikon. Anyway, these are my favourite photos from the trip to Italy. Check back soon for the Berlin post.
