Today was yet another travel day and we were all a little sad leaving our house this time. Today we would be crossing over from Italy to Slovenia. This would be our last time in Italy, as far as this trip goes, so we knew we would all have to keep on the lookout for one last gelato stop.
We saw the grandmother one last time on our way out and she bid us farewell. From here we set off to our midway destination, Trieste. We stopped five minutes from the town at a castle to go to the washroom. We thought about popping in for a few minutes, but then we decided against the castle and stuck to our plan of going to the city.
We spent our time in Trieste wandering around the streets and shops mainly, and every once and a while we'd look down at our map to find a specific location. The town is located on the water so we were able to walk by the boats and look at the ocean. There weren't very many green spaces, but the ones that we found we took advantage of by eating gelato in one, and resting up a little in the other. We got a little lost on our way back to the parkade, but thankfully a friendly Italian lady was able to help us out. Before heading to our car we stopped at the train station for a washroom and a grocery store. We stocked up for dinner as in Slovenia it was Independence Day and we were pretty sure that we wouldn't be able to find any open stores.
We crossed the border over to Slovenia, and soon enough our GPS announced that we had arrived at our destination. It took a little looking to find out what apartment building was ours, but our host's friend had decided to wait outside for us, so it was figured out in no time. The man showing us the place was very friendly and helpful, giving us some information about the town we were staying in and what we could do here. The apartment is very nice as well. It's organized and clean, and there is a comfortable amount of room. We're also on the top floor which is a bonus, and we have a balcony from which we can see the car park and a bit of a view.
In the evening Hannah and my parents watched a movie called My Left Foot, while I read and caught up with my friends. Tomorrow we will be heading downtown and walking around the streets there.
