Seaside Getaway

Since it's been so spring-y lately, my friend Cori and I decided we needed to be by the sea!

So, we drove down to Trieste which is a seaport right on the Adriatic, very near to Slovenia. And then we did absolutely nothing but stare at the water for the whole afternoon and evening and then again for a bit the next morning. But here are some pictures, if you'd like to see...

We arrived around lunchtime and we walked around town for a bit until we found a spot to eat that was right on the Grand Canal. We read that it's hard to find a bad meal in Trieste (unless you don't like seafood!) and we found that to be true. Everything we had there was amazing and we ate lots of fish since we don't get that too much in Cortina!

After lunch we wandered around town and came across the outdoor market which was filled with flower stalls and spice stalls with tons of different salts and spice mixtures that looked amazing.

We sat in the main square, the Piazza Unita d'Italia, on big comfy chairs in the sun which is what everyone else was doing too...

In the late afternoon, we headed down to the pier to sit by the water and watch the sun set with the local fishermen.

The next morning we took our time driving home, stopping on the way to walk on the beach and look at the Miramare Castle which was right on the sea.

And now our mini spring break by the sea is over and we're back to mountain living! The second round of playoffs starts tonight!
