European Adventure Part III - Verona

Saturday, January 18, 2014

Aaah - heart home..... I am not sure what it is about Verona but as soon as we pulled up at Anne's beautiful apartment (la dolce vita) I just felt like I was home again....Anne welcomed us with open arms and she is a gorgeous french lady living in Italy and her apartment is so very special to us... We spent 2 nights there on our last trip and 4 nights this trip.  On our first night we had a lovely tea at a little local restaurant and then walked into the main square to the christmas markets.... So beyond magical.. Then the next day we explored again and went to a Monet exhibition, re-visited Juliets balcony bought some yummy provisions and cooked in Anne's kitchen.  The next day we took a day trip to Lake Garda and it was so pretty you just wanted to sit and take it in...I bought myself a lovely little leather wallet at one of the markets along the water and the boys tried some of the local food.... We awoke the next morning to a very sick hubby in a huge amount of pain and within a short while we knew we needed to ring the ambulance all a little scary when you don't speak much italian and he needs help straight away.... Anne was INCREDIBLE and sent some friends to go with us to the hospital we waited for about 5 hours and with lots of  medication on board they let him leave.... My hubby had knee surgery 6 weeks before the trip (as well) and he works so very hard that we so wanted him to be able to take it all in and enjoy everything....(unfortunately his health wasn't great for all of the trip but he is such a wonderful strong man and he tried to enjoy it all)...  We had beautiful italian food in a little cafe and ate gelato for our last night in Verona...and had a yummy hot chocolate with Anne before we left....on our way now to the beautiful Venice .... and the story continues...
