At the beginning of that month we had a vacation in Italy. It was really nice trip. We flew to Roma at 4th August and stayed there three nights. During that time we visited Pompei, Napoli and had full day in Rome. After that we went to Florence and passed Siena and Pisa. Next day we spent in beautiful Florence and next morning we went to Venice. On that way we visited Sirmione and the place where lived Romeo and Juliet Verona. The last day we walked in small city Padua near Venice and at the evening flew back to Larnaca.
For the 8 days we passed about 1500 kilometers! Sure we tired a bit but the we enjoyed the trip very much. Italy is a beautiful place. There are a lot of amazing, legendary places. But Venice is something special! I cannot describe our filling when we walked there or glided in a gondola. It was like a dream. We’d like to return back and spend more time in Rome and Venice.
We made about 1000 photos during our trip. So, I need a time to process them. After that I’ll upload to Picasa the best ones.
After good, two-week vacation in rainy St Petersbug we came back to sunny Cyprus. Our cat was glad to see us. She mewed at least one hour at night under our bedroom door. A hard drive in my work computer died with 80GB of data. Well, some part of it was a garbage. But for the rest I have to find a way to restore it (I know, backup is a panacea for this kind of problems but I didn’t do it). So, I’m working now on Windows PC and waiting for a new hard drive. And finally, after the nice rest I have to resolve a bunch of problems which accumulated during my vacation. I work just a second day but I’m already tired! Vacation …
Vacation was fantastic. We were in the Russian Museum, the Mariinsky Theatre and the Theatre of Comedy. We walked on the Nevsky Prospect, The Fontanka street … We took a lot of pictures (I need a time to process them). But not so much as in our previous visit. Also, I’ve decided to review and move all our photos to the Flickr. It takes some time but I think that it’s the best way to store and share our photos. I hope that I do it soon.
