as we disembarked the small aircraft and went into the airport itself, it wasnt as big as i pictured it, but nice and cozy. to be honest i really had no idea where to go lol hahaha as i am alone this day and byiang - my friend will meet me tomorrow. luckily, outside the arrival gate, the tourist information is located, i swear - i am a bit embrassed to go there - as its not my thing to go to tourist informations lol, but in this situation, it is an exception! lol
at the tourist info, i asked how to go to sta.
i went outside to smoke, curiously, there arent many people and there are no buses outside, so i went further and further to the left side just as the woman from the tourist information directed me, then i came across parking lots already but there were no buses to be found! arrrghhhh
then i saw a man coming towards me, normally i hate asking for directions lol, but i looked at my clock its already 3pm! weird! because my flight details said that i wil arrive in venice at 2 pm! lol
so i asked the man, first in italian - because i can speak a bit of spanish and then asked him if he can speak in english LOL hahahahaha he said he can speak a bit of english - so i mixed up italian, spanish and english with him :P so he directed me to the bus sutaion, wchich was really at the front of the arrival gate, how could i miss that?!!! well - there arent any buses around how am i supposed to know that?! wahahaha, i thank him but he really made his way and checked if i am at bus no.
i waited for the bus like 10 minutes and i smoked but the time is really is odd its one hour advance than the time in germany, hmmmm i thought that maybe italy doesnt used the dst time saving, but i know that most of europe do that - even in spain which is in the mediterenean.
as the bus came, i showed my ticket to the bus driver (and i didnt knew that i have to verfiy it at the electronic machine scanner wahahaha) but it doesnt matter- im a tourist remember?! wahahaha.
as the bus rolled away from the airport - i was amazed at the name of the street leading in/out from the airport - galileo galelei! i was delerious - because well, i was a geek at school - learning about famous mathematicians, astronomers, physicist etc wahaha - i was just so happy that time! i mean passing through a street which is named after the father of science!
passing through the farms and fields between the airport and venezia, i felt that i wasnt in a different coutry, because i culd understand the people - well not everything, but i can catch what theyre saying as italian is similar to spanish and the landscape is almost the same in spain!
in no time, the bus passed through ponte della liberta - the bridge connecting mainland italy and venezia!
