Jaime came to Italy: We ate, we saw, we conquered :)

Jaime came to visit me in Italy! When she arrived for her five day adventure in Italy (and the Tour de Slovenia, Croatia, and Venice, better know to us as "SloVenCRoa), the airlines not only lost her luggage, but there was also a national bus strike going on in Italy so she had a long wait and journey just to unite with me! What a trooper though, she was all smiles when I greeted her at the Bus depot.  We walked along the water of Trieste to watch the sunset and had our photograph taken by a New York times freelance photographer doing a spot on Trieste. It was quite an evening and first night of fun! Fresh calamari, good pizza, and SLEEP!

Later on in the weekend, we rescued her bag from the airport, visited the Castle Miramare, and went on an Osmiza adventure. IT WAS a phenomenal evening. Liz, Lizzy, Molly, Jaime, and I packed up our little rental car with blankets and the guitar and preceded to sing and be jolly and merry like Italians do at Osmizas to great meals. 

Later we visited Venice, wandered the streets, ate Gelato, had pasta, and called it a day as we were finally tired from wandering aimlessly. 

I am so glad to have had her around. We had great conversations and lots of laughs. She is a dear and wonderful friend :)  

Here are some pictures:
Jaime came to Italy! This is in Premantura island... near Pula, Croatia

Pula, Croatia had awesome Roman ruins!

We showed Jaime around to Trieste's Carso... and introduced her to Osmizas!

A beautiful, beautiful day in Croatia... with four great friends :)
