(Not so much) Weekend Veronese.

Yes, it wasn't really during the weekend, because we got to Verona on Monday, but it surely was a Veronese thing, right? It's our annual, a must trip to Verona and some of its surroundings (Gardaland amusement park, to be exact) and it also had to happen this year. Igor, Robert and yours truly, that was this year's expedition. And now some words and more pictures.



Verona

The day turned out to be cloudy and the light for taking pictures was the worst of the kind, so I am only offering you some details with not totally fucked up contrast. But, hey, shopping and food and stuff still rule on ole Verona - we skipped Julia and some bridges and all this time; we just took it easy.


Dante. Hard thinking.



 

 

 



Sirmione


We decided to spend the evening/night part somewhere else, so we made a tiny short trip to Sirmione, charming old city on an peninusula in Garda lake. Food, again, was great. And after some rain even colours turned out to be slightly nicer. Darker, actually.






Quiet.


It never occured to me Italians needed some guidance. Erm...... :)


Blurry, but I like it. And it was rather windy.


Petit Robert.

 



Gardaland


Ah, feels so good to be careless, silly child for a day. Screaming your pants off, eating junk food the whole day, just feeling great. Hence mobile pics.


Sequoia roller coaster in the middle. Supposedly one of the kind. Scary.




The Atlantis.


Good night.

 



Natura Viva


We haven't visited this safari park in years, so this summer it seemed like a good choice. Driving around in the middle of wild life you cannot really encounter in the streets of Ljubljana. Well, at least not all the forms of it. And not of the original kind. :)))















 



Malcesine


Malcesine... a tiny medieval paradise at Lago di Garda. Oh, food was really good. And resting also. We were slightly tired after all the fun. Have I told you lately I love Italy?








 



 

Goodbye! And we just might return sooner than in a year's time.

Knowing you, I have no doubt that fun was had. :)

So was it your anniversary?

Viva la natura viva! :)

No, anniversary is 9 November. Gardaland was our first "common plan", so it has to happen! :)

Wow. It looks awesome. A great blend of quaint streets with modern waterparks. Looks great. And I can't tell the light was ever bad from your pictures.

Thanks, B! It was really nice and light was pretty shitty the first day. Then it has cleared a bit. And I always enjoy going to Italy. It's such a charming country! :)
