Here's a few pics - highlights of travel so far.
  • In Venice we happened to catch the Redentore celebration, including fireworks to welcome us the evening we arrived in Lido from the airport via boat. This traditional temporary bridge is created yearly so the faithful can attend special services marking the end of the 1575 plague in a church in an island which is not normally connected to the main Venice islands.

  • In Verona we saw and loved the Castelvecchio. We didn't leave nearly enough time to explore its museum and galleries. Mom and I both loved the heavily updated interior by Scarpa.

  • Bratislava, Slovakia: saw two cute kids who were kind enough to pose beautifully. Wish I had their parents' email address! That's not so farfetched, because...

  • Not only coca-cola, but also broadband Internet has come to Slovakia. This bus was advertising/informing outside the cafe where we had lunch.
