I've been planning to write this post since knowing I was going on a little road trip this weekend. And although it is not quite the post desired, as we ended up only going to one of our destinations (a long story you definitely do not want to hear about).. I thought I'd share some pictures anyway. Because despite every thing, yesterday I spent the day in Bologna and it was really quite the beautiful city. We had planned to go to Verona today, but several reasons stopped this! So instead here is a bit of Bologna. And I'm absolutely heartbroken to say we did not eat bolognese sauce.
This was taken in Bologna's market. We were trying on endless jackets, dresses, hideous sunglasses and jewellery that will almost definitely turn green! It was absolutely packed which made getting around a bit harder due to our big bags, but we managed to master our way through and I picked up a necklace, a couple of bracelets and a ring for myself. For the first time in my life, I spent the least amount of money!
We later met up with our friends and although this square looks absolutely dead, it was full of students from the university (one kindly took this picture). What we saw of the city was absolutely beautiful and it was so so handy to have people from Bologna to take us around, because we'd probably have been wondering in circles without them- I can vouch for this because later we parted ways, and we really did end up going in circles!
Just to top off the day, I managed to fall face first en route to the train station, displaying my underwear to the Italian world AND a large group of teenage boys. Who needless to say, laughed hysterically as I got up 'oh so casually' and carried on walking. And so the weekend was not quite what we had planned. But, Bologna was fun none the less. Tonight I have big plans to sit with some kind of delicious carb followed by a chocolatey treat, on my bed, watching the Lizzie McGuire Movie to remind me this is what dreams are made of.
Ciao for Now! x
