Eurotour 2011 - Italy!!


The first place in Italy we stopped was Verona, of William Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet fame. Basically we had a 2 hours to have a quick look around the city and the we continued on the way to our hotel.

leaving Verona

Loved this castle just casually sitting on the the side of the hill..

Our hotel was in a reort area and had its; own reseved section of beach just 2 blocks from the hotel, everyone headed to the beach for an hour then back to the hotel for dinner.


We left the hotel mid-morning and headed for the boat which would take us all to Venice!

First view of Venice

Everything I ever thought it would be - an aweful lot of gondolas, canals and beautiful old buildings

Exploring the city:

we then went on a gondola ride, I went with Baptiste, Erick, Imke, Andrea and Ashleigh (off camera/next to me)

our gondoleer (not sure if that is their real title)

we went past this boat in a canal and I wondered as to whether this is a parking ticket?

^^ This is my favourite photo from all of Eurotour!

Experimenting with different camera effects

I really loved the day in Venice, there was also masks from Commedia Dell'arte which I studied in drama back in Australia so it really interested me.

We then had the next day free at the hotel/beach, good to have a solid day of just relaxation with no bus time!

After 2 days, we packed our stuff and headed into the Italian alps, a long bus trip ahead of us.

We spent the afternoon hiking in the alps, it was lots of fun despite the fact it started raining.
