Verona holds some bittersweet memories for me.
I loved, loved the city and would go back in a heartbeat. The weather was gorgeous, the architecture is stunning, and the food and people are marvelous. It's a pretty good sized city, but it still feels small and intimate because of the size and layout of the streets.
I didn't get to spend a lot of time in Verona, and next time I'm in Italy I'd like to have more time to explore. We saw a few of the big hot spots - Juliet's balcony, and the opera - and then spent some time exploring the shops. We had a dinner appointment about an hour away that night, so even though there wasn't much time in Verona, the time we did have just happened to be during the golden hours.
It was that night that I decided that Italy is definitely one of the best places in the world to experience the soft, warm light of the golden hours. Just thinking about it makes me want to go book a flight.
The one reason that Verona wasn't awesome was because that was the evening my camera got stolen out of our hotel room. That basically means that any photos I have from Verona aren't mine because I never got the chance to take them - or any photos from Switzerland - off my camera. I hope that whoever took that camera enjoyed all our vacation photos.
Thankfully, I'd taken off all the photos from the weeks previous already. In the end, I guess that having my camera stolen did give me the excuse to upgrade....but still. Having anything stolen isn't a fun experience.
I (not so secretly) love the movie Letters to Juliet, so being able to go see the balcony was kind of a super happy moment for me. It's super crowded and there's not much to do, but I still loved it because I'm totally into the cheesy stuff like that.
Will most likely be found traveling, reading, writing, or somehow doing all three. Passionate about books, culture and art.
