would you believe that my flight to venice was fecking cancelled?! and i do not have a chance but to book either the day before or the day after! its really impossible to change schedules as ive only received the airline's email a week ago - after the supposed to be flight date - i could not go to slovenia anymore, as the train only leaves once a day - or once a night?! at 21:00 hour and thats it and going back is only at 2:00 hour hahahaha - next time, i will fly from graz, austria to go to slovenia.
i was really angry talking to the airline, but i cant do anythign about it - so i said they have to book me before - so instead of saving money, for not sleeping and staying in a hostel for a day - i wouldnt.
when everything was all set, here comes the dreading news, from november on to early spring - venice experiences the "acqua alta" of the venice flood! arrrghhh - so i am hoping i wouldnt cross any of that! lol hahahaha.
i still couldnt believe that heebeejeebies are still there whenever i go! lol im sick and tired actually but it all adds to the fun and experiences - so bring them on!
luckily as always, i bring my lucky rubber duckie with me! (long story) saved my from so many mishaps i came across with! i dont have any name for it - i just called it duck lol hahaha.
but the one thing i hate about traveling in winter, is that packing would be never be so light, as winter clothes takes too much space - so i would not bring that much because i am not going to check in my bag - coz i only have more or less an hour in stopover - the last time i had that was an airline lost my bag - and i dont want that to happen again - lesson learned lol! hahahahahaha
and as for that dreaded acqua alta - im sure the venezians would sell rubber boots at sky high prices if the floos came - so - i would be bringing trash bags with me to cover my legs hahahahahaha.
3 more days to go - then im off to my winter trip - visit the queen of the adriatic "la serenissima venezia" and the julian alps in slowenia - the last road trip of the year! bring it on!!!
