Oops! I just wanted to start the 2018 photo series when recognizing, there is still a draft from summer 2017. Lets see it as a belated closing scene of 2017. Another great year with a great summer experience. Lay back, take a breath and relax.
2018 is in planning. Some things are fixed. Others are in the making. Looking forward to another great time.
The view from Monte Titano down to the Adriatic coast line and Rimini. The Photo does not even give an idea about how breathtaking the view from that point is. The distance to the coast is 17km and the photo was taken from almost 700 meters height. The houses in the lower left corner (Borgo Maggiore) are around 500m above sea level and the terrain rapidly drops below 100m asl within 7km from where the photo was taken.
In reality, you feel like standing above the entire landscape and watching down to the sea. It truly is magnificient.
Another major touristic landmark on our list was San Marino. Strolling through the narrow alleys, enjoying delicious food, benefiting from taxless shopping and getting a glimpse of history about over 1700 years of independence. An interesting and relaxing day at Monte Titano.
Treponti in golden light. We spent a perfect evening there. Sweet summer memories while we already have autumn here. Grey and rainy autumn.
Typical scene on one of the many small squares in Venice.
The low sun shining through an alley in Venice.
Is there anything more beautiful and meditative than sitting on a landing stage, watching the sunset and the calm lake looks like a giant mirror. The beginning of a tropical night. I wanted that so much. And I already miss it.
Italy, Summer. Nothing else to add. Okay: best Italian food and gelato I had in my life so far.
Sunset over the small town of Comacchio, seen from its famous bridge “Treponti”.
A perfect summer day ends. I am obsessed by those “sunset in car mirror” shots. Together with the perfect song, this creates the atmosphere of road trips.
I am really late with posting this here. On the other hand, it gives a glimpse back to summer. Hopefully these days come back soon. I am frozen over.
Took the photo on my daily bike ride to the office.
