italy on my mind (part two)

okay, here na is the second installment of my italy post. naks, there’s like that? haha. pagbigyan nyo na ako, on the roll eh. pag hindi ko nakwento today, baka ma busy na naman ako, hindi ko na ma post.

you guys ready? alright, let's do this!
our next stop was verona. we had to travel via train from milano centrale to verona for two hours. we tried the ordinary one, nasiraan pa one station away from our destination so imagine, paka init. grabe, laglag na petals ko and super starving when we reached the station. we had to take the bus from the station to the city where most of the tourist spots are located. We were lucky kasi the girl na napagtanungan namin was kind enough to tell us where to go.

we had super late lunch before we started exploring the place. the food review will be on a separate post so relaks lang kayo, haha. no foodie photos just yet. anyway, here are some of the photos i took. sobrang aliw looking at the structures, they have this wow appeal to think that hindi naman ako into those things but like what I have been saying with my previous posts, iba pa din when you see it in person. mala-love mo sya and you will be amazed na totoo sya talaga.

i super liked the eskinitas leading us to casa giulietta (balcony of juliet). i have seen the letters to juliet movie and hindi ko ma recall na may establishments like stores and all papunta sa place. parang old colorful houses lang and yung tunnel like place papasok. so we just walked and walked, enjoying the eskinita na parang feel na feel ko talaga yung walk ko because the structures really are just sooo pretty. i love how they put in the hanging plants on the balconies, the color of the stalls and walls, really really pretty. plus the doors and the accents, lovely sya talaga.

who wouldn't love this eskinita?

see what i mean?

going back to casa giulietta, naku super dami ng tao. the front area was actually under renovation, okay sya but I feel na medyo napabayaan yung labas, like the smell sa may gate, and medyo madumi but inside the casa, okay naman, yun lang may entrance fee, pero syempre, keri na at least you get to have a souvenir shot sa balcony. juliet na juliet ang peg. but you know what, eto ha, personal opinion ko lang, i think they could have preserved it better eh, kasi yung movie parang ang ganda ganda and well maintained yung place. a little disappointing na parang edited pala or something kasi sobra ako excited so medyo na off ako slight haha. it was okay nonetheless, I mean, what did it for me was really the eskinita.

letters to juliet.. chewing gums? really?

awww! locks of love

another interesting stuff pala, there was this statue of juliet outside, tapos people are lining up to have their photo taken na hawak the right boobie of juliet for goodluck daw. i didnt try it, though. diko alam eh, i googled it after, kaya naman pala nagkakagulo sila. hehe.

also, there was this show sa center leading to the day market, magic eh. grabe lang kasi naka hang sya talaga sa air. super nagulat ako and nakilapit lapit by checking kung may daya or wala eh pero wala talaga, super creepy! anyhow,  it was another source of entertainment for all of us who witnessed it so, sulit na sya haha.



ayayay! enough of the kwentos. here are the rest of the photos which includes torre dei lamberti which looms over piazza delle erbe that used to be the towns forum during the time of the roman empire. it is considered as one of the most historic and picturesque squares in italy. you will get to see different sculptures and historic buildings in this area. day market can also be found here.

thats it for now ha?  please visit again for the third installment. i will share the best part of the trip, visiting venice, the gondola ride experience and more. promise, nice photos and dami kwentos.
laters! xx

Teka sis, did you try holding their head? baka naman may nakatagong magnet yan or whatsoever. Hehe. Paano nga pla kung magCCR break sila? Meron bang kapalit? :)

yes naman sis, go go go! haha pagoda na beauty ko, ayaw ko na makipila pa. ang init init sobra.

i didnt try holding their heads pero yung ilalim, yung in between na nakalutang sya, hinawakan ko, air talaga, creepy! pero yun nga, i dunno, baka ang powers eh nandun sa naka wrap sa heads nila. hindi ko na masyado inalam if may CR break hahaha, nawala rin sila bigla. mabilis lang eh. Nangawit siguro. lol
