flying over venezia! arrivederci bella venezia!
i went to the tourist office at santa lucia station because i want to buy there my ticket back to marco polo international airport and ask questions about the bus platform and number that goes to the airport, i want a straight answer and i dont want to guess that time, i wasnt feeling well, i know its the side effect of the sleeping pill i took, my chest tightening and i cant breathe - i know because i had overdose of sleeping pills when i was in my early 20's.

while killing time and smoking at santa lucia train station and waiting for my bus to marco polo international airport at pizziale roma, my roomate, the girl who was going to rome crossed my path again lol, we smiled at each other, and for the last time, before putting the fire off my cigarette, looked at venice and the grand canal before heading to pizziale roma and the bus station.

it was hard to leave venice, as the bus came, with heavy heart and feet went inside.

as the bus drove through ponte della liberta - the bridge connecting venice island to mainland italy, i realized, i dont need to feel sad afterall, because venice wanted me to be happy if i visit her, she gave all her best to me.

we passec again the avenue to the airport, the avenue called galileo galilei - i was like a child again with excitement! lol these names of famous people where i only read in textbooks - and finally having to experience their names of glory in their country was just too much for me! lol :D

i arrived at tessara where marco polo airport is located, it takes only like 20 minutes frm venice to get here. it was so cold! i never expected it.

the bus stopped at the arrival gate of the airport, i went inside as i am toooo lazy to walk a few more meters to the escalator where the departure is supposed to be. no luck as i searched- there arent any elevators or escalator going to the second floor arrrghh, no choice but i went outside and walked a few meters to the escalator.

i went directly to the check-in of czech air and it was a flash because i didnt had anybags with me, the only heebeejeebies was that the guy at the check in asked me in italian as he mistook me for italian but i told him i am not and cant speak italian lol, he was asking for my visa but i told him i dont need any visa since i live in germany.

after the check in- i went to the cafeteria and ordered tea because my chest was really hurting.
the hight part of the alps!!!
the tea helped alot and after that i went outside and smoked - it snowed a bit and from the distance - oh my god! skyline of venice with its church towers and the tallest campanile de san marco can be seen even in a great distance - just magnetic - i let out a sigh again. i smoke beside the 3 carabinieri who were taking a break. hmmmm interesting! lol as if they were bored with their jobs lol.

after 3 smokes, i went back inside and into the security check-in, after a quick scan - i went through and inside the airport - i searched for a smoking area lol hahahaha and then ate a little bit and drank gatorade.

at the final call, i went to the boarding gate and inside the plane - same old plane an old plane probably from the communist times with propellers in it.
leaving the alps :((( hu hu hu


as the plane ascended and made a turn over venice..... it was fantastic - i wish i am not using only a phone camera! the view from aboe the city was so priceless, a memory i cannot forget.

after a couple of minutes, we were flying again over the alps and i could not really believe the luck i have, as it was sunny again and the beauty and majesty of the alps which can be seen from venice and now i am flying over them again.... europe.. eventhough its the most expensive continent to travel, is for me the most beautiful.

as the plane passed over the alps and into the lowlands of germany to prague, was only the time i realized, that i am far far far away now from venezia....

arrivederci bella venezia.......
