My First Venture Abroad
Riccione and Rimini. Two holiday resorts on the Adriatic Coast of Italy that bring back lot's of memories, this was the first time I had ever travelled abroad, at the time it was not under pleasant circumstances, my father had just passed away and some of the family headed over to Italy to get away from things for a few weeks. I remember clearly the plane landing and the heat just hit me as I got up and prepared to leave the plane, it was warm ! The resorts are close to each other and we travelled up and down the coast line, trying my first sips of alcohol and real pizza, I remember getting a bit of sunstroke and seeing some nice places on day trips, even watching the crowded trains going up and down the coast to places like Lido de Jesolo. The food was new but good, the ice cream an adventure within itself and the weather just kept on getting warmer.
