it was super nice to be back travelling solo again for a couple days in verona, went to see juliet early in the morning when there were no tourists and wrote my letter. had a little photoshoot on her balcony too… hee hee!
then moving north, met marnie (my aussie mate i met on the tour) in bolzano, the most wicked northern italian town. used to be a part of austria but it’s now italy, so everything’s in both german and italian. saw otzi (google him, 5000 year old caveman mummy found in the alps in the 90s!! we’re best friends.) had some good picnics and explored in greenhouses.
but now i’m in fondo!
marnie has a lovely friend who’s letting us stay for a week in her parents HOTEL on the side of a canyon?! crazy mountains, lakes and rivers, most wonderful italian family, out.standing. food and a blow dryer 🙂 we’re washing dishes and helping out for a week then marnie and i are off to salzburg and vienna for a week, then she’s off to england and i’m a solo adventurer once again.
