June just worked out to be the best month, despite it already being busy and Richard knows that once I set my mind to something there's no going back. Bless his heart for holding down the fort twice in one month.
To be totally honest I was really nervous about flying to a completely new country to meet someone I'd only ever "seen" on Facebook. But as my plane descended over Trieste, Italy I got goosebumps and I just felt #soblessed.
We found a place to eat dinner, walked through the city streets, ate gelato and then watched the sun set over the sea. It was the stuff my European dreams are made of.
We drove to see the salt fields, where the tide is let in, a dam is placed, and as the water evaporates salt is harvested. Then we went for a swim in the Adriatic Sea, which was really nice.
From the caves we drove to the Predjama Castle but I'll save that for the next post. It seemed like every time we drove from one place to another I would get really sleepy, but I never wanted to fall asleep because I was always afraid of missing more beautiful scenery.
