Hello out there to all of my fellow ATSers who have the wanderlust! I have had and forged many opportunties to travel in my life (not so much
recently- lol- funny what a family, bills, routine can do to wanderlust) and am tremendously grateful for each one. There is so much to learn and see
and each place has its own charm and intrigue (okay, fine. not every
place I've ever seen is charming, but most are!)
My favorite mode of travel is probably by car, as there is so much to see in between point A and B, but have also enjoyed plane trips which traverse
in a few hours what my ancestors did in weeks, have met the most interesting characters on trains, busses, ferries, so that I must say I love to
travel by any means. I love seeing new places, meeting new people of various cultures and beliefs, trying new food (mostly lol) and checking out the
diverse beauty the world has to offer.
When I was younger I stayed in youth hostels and had the best time. If I could afford the expense and time of travel these days, chances are I'd opt
for the peace and privacy of a hotel (one way in which I've changed) while meeting who I could out and about.
I was lucky enough to go to Europe on three seperate occasions, which I am mainly posting about. I case any one has any of their own experiences to
offer, in case anyone wants any travel advice (if I can give it) or just wants to see some gorgeous pictures. I plan on updating this thread from
time to time with other beautiful travel pictures but please feel free to post pictures of your own if you are inclined! The world is just so
gorgeous, I'd love to see a bit through your lense
I'll start with Italy, as I already have uploaded the pics after seeing Augustus's thread about Italy
Here are some stunning shots from Italy. The place just begs to be photographed, it is sumptuous.
I started in Venice (we took a train from Interlaken, Austria to Venice after renting a car and driving from Geneva)
We took a ferry over to Lido, where we stayed:
Venice has a surreal beauty
Also, mysterious at night
Nearby are the colorful islands Murano and Burano
Here's me being happy:
Next off to Siena, a gorgeous country town:
Florence for a wedding:
And finally Pisa:
for the iconic shot:
We stayed in an old nunnery:
So, that's all for now ATS! So, friends, do you have any preferences in modes of travel, which places to visit, places to stay, ways to meet people?
I'd love to hear about your travel experiences or see your travel pics! Also, have a great day, and never forget that we live in a beautiful place,
at a wonderful time!
