Slovenia & Venice, Italy

On this trip we were so lucky to have stopped off in a couple of places on route to our intended destinations. Although it wasn’t for long it was incredibly special and unreal to be able to walk around a city or area that i’d never even thought about visiting- Zagreb/Slovenia which were just as charming as Pula and Venice. Although Zagreb airport could use a bit of entertainment- I mean, even the SLIGHTEST BIT.

Slovenia

We were only in Slovenia for about 10 minutes (browsing) before we had to hop back onto our ride but it was lovely to soak up a little bit more of Eastern Europe.
We were met by a pop up farmers market with home grown vegetables, dried and fresh. As well as jams, fruits and meats- oh my god the fucking salami though.

Venice, Italy

Venice was kind of a dream, the buildings were charming, the shops were quaint and our 19th century hotel (Hotel Giorgione) was actually used to store sweets and looked like a miniature Grand Budapest where we were greeted by a Adrien Brody doppelganger- which was just icing on the cake.
We managed to do a lot of sightseeing and we found a museum that was right up our street- The Mental Asylum Museum of San Servolo, sadly it was a book in advance tour. But instead of sulking (the weather wasn’t that great either) we ended up spending about 3 hours in Doge’s Palace, the palace was the residence of the Doge of Venice, the supreme authority of the Republic of Venice- much beauty.

We also made it to the Peggy Guggenheim museum formally Ms Guggenheim’s abode which had some very notable pieces of art by Monet, Dali, Ernst and more. It took us more than an hour to walk there, stopping at an eatery and some shops along the way. -And to make sure we were going in the right direction, ha.

On our last 2 nights we figured being in the one of the most romantic places in the world, we would try to scrub up and go out some place 100% local that tourists were completely oblivious to- which my boyfriend nailed. The menu was hand written in Italian so we had to get it translated although our translator/waiter seemed a little hesitant at first but i think eventually he understand our want for some authentic Italian cuisine/dining experience.

The weather wasn’t always in top form but we CERTAINLY made the most of it and it didn’t bother us at all. We missed the last night of Dimensions but later heard that it had been cancelled mid way due to the immense rain (there was also NO shade at the festivals- NONE) – that we also felt on the roof top of our sweet storage hotel. Lucky i’d say.
