I woke up in my tent, pitched in the garden in the small italian village. Yesterday, I asked a local man, can I camp in the forest outside his garden, but he invited me inside...
I started to cycle early. First, visited Modena. It was close to my overnight spot.
The duomo (church) in the center o
This day wasn't my lucky day...
In the morning, said goodbye to my Warmshowers host, Lorenzo, and almost forgot at his home my charger and 2 powerbanks. Good that I realized it not far away and returned quickly (it would be impossible to charge my phone without it).
Went to Ferrara. In the midd
Woke up early, as usual. I was staying at Matteo's house - my Warmshowers host invited me for the breakfast. After that, he showed me the good cycling path to Padua, it follows the river and is separated from car traffic - only cyclists and runners around.
It was less then 10 km to Padua. I was im
This trip happened almost 10 years ago. It was my first experience of winter trekking. All my fears didn't come true - no avalanches, no hypothermia, no death in the middle of snowy nowhere. But, well, it was really hard to exist in this cold weather conditions and to walk a lot of kilometers every
Previous 2 days I spent at my host's Adriano house. repaired my bike and visited Venice twice.
For today, I had a plan to continue my cycling.
Adriano left me the key and went to the mountains (it is a weekday). Have to leave the key in "some secret place" when I'll go.
But, when I woke up, it was
Second day I am hanging around Venice :)
How it happened?
If you remember from my previous post, the front wheel of my bike was somehow broken - looked like "8". So, had to fix it, but I have no skills in bicycle repairing...
In the morning, Adriano (my host from Warmshowers) helped me by taking
In the morning I went to Venice! Magnificient Venice, the city I heared a lot information about, but never had been here before. Only 27 km left.
The road passed few villages, towns and industrial suburb Mestre.
The weather had turned bad, but the rain started only when I reached Roman Square (Pi
Slept not well, because near my wild camping spot (close to somebody's field) there was a railway, fenced with the wall, and some people were doing something there (may be working) and talked loudly about something. Already at 6 AM I woke up and packed my tent, quickly ate breakfast and left.
In the morning I continued to cycle. Farewell to my host in Trieste, Viktor. Now i'm going to Venice. Found the place to stay close to that city (dealed with Warmshowers user). But Venice it's 2-day cycling. So, probably will camp somewhere today. That was my thought...
After Trieste, few kms, I
The bora wind dried all my clothes that I left on the balcony (it was wet after huge yesterday's rain). So when I woke up, I had it all dry, ready for another day of cycling.
But I decided to spend this day in Trieste. I'm first time here. And I met old friend, Viktor - Ukrainian engineer, workin
Until this day, I had almost no problems with the weather. Ok, my skin was burnt by the sun, but it's not the biggest issue that can distract you from pedaling. No raining, 18 days dry. Am I lucky?
Castle Senozece, ruined.
Started early, the road was easy and I quickly artived to Skocĵan caves.
