Jules Posted August 17, 2013 Share Posted August 17, 2013 More people should share vacation pictures of cool places they've been to. It's a fun topic to get us all through the summer, I think. So open your own threads and share your summer adventures! A couple weeks ago my mother, my sister and I went to Italy, because this could very well be my last summer in Europe in a long long time and I wanted to bring a (final) visit to some places meaningful to my family. My grandfather is Italian, so we went to see friends and family there and we went to the place where we spread some of my father's ashes after he died a couple years back. There are some cool things in it. Venice, the Biennale art fair, random Italian things and some pictures of the drive. Descriptions of image are above the pictures. Good morning Italy! Day 2, 7.30AM, a good 1500ft across the Italian border in a hotel in Resia. http://i.imgur.com/1ZhtJFq.jpg Mussolini had a hydropower plant built here and the lake flooded several towns. Fascination views. http://i.imgur.com/T1leLg3.jpg The typewriter, while patented in the US, was invented in Partschins (South Tirol), Italy. They have a museum! http://i.imgur.com/tRh7X3m.jpg Hey, move over! An odd traffic jam descending from the 6500ft high Passo Rolle high road in the Dolomites. http://i.imgur.com/tOz2TIV.jpg Our house for 10 days. Eternally grateful we could stay with friends of awesome friends. http://i.imgur.com/22MEhjB.jpg View from the garden. These are the fields of the famous Prosecco wine. http://i.imgur.com/IgVwqQk.jpg Once intended as a temporary bridge, the Ponte d'Accademia is now a staple of the canal. http://i.imgur.com/5yn1olm.jpg Random houses on the Canale Grande http://i.imgur.com/QwQdUA5.jpg The famous bell tower at St. Mark's square. http://i.imgur.com/vQuggR0.jpg Visiting the Biennale art fair. http://i.imgur.com/l22dQQJ.jpg Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
