My daughter lives and works in Bavaria now, and she snagged a few days off. Her initial plan was to visit a friend who’s living in Paris, but that friend was, it turns out, going to be out of town during that time. So no free housing in an expensive city. So what to do?
I suggested northern Italy – it was more or less a straight shot from where she is down to Verona. And do a day trip or two. Mantua? Venice?
So she went. Verona first.
And that’s just a fraction of one day’s experiences….
(And the weirdest thing? I saw one of my friends here this evening and she said, “Guess where my brother was today? In Verona!”)
