Savoring Italy: A blend of Treviso and Venice

“The earth belongs to YAHWEH and all that fills it

– the world and those who dwell in it.

For He has founded it upon the seas

and upon the waters He establishes it.” – Psalms 24:1-2

 

A-Treviso-1-P7282802d-A-toast-to-great-food_great-place_great-people-and-great-valueMy husband delighted me with a travel ticket for two (2) to Italy as a post 5th wedding anniversary present. Hmmm… Italy! Who would not be captivated by the world’s largest wine producer and the home of freshly stone-baked pizza, al dente pastas, mouth-watering gelato (Italian ice-cream) and caffè macchiato?

It is so famous for its beauty, food and rich culture, even though not all have been here before. Beyond fine dining, warm people and great scenery, what attracted my husband and I to choose this country are two of its romantic places : Venice and Treviso.

Whenever I’d hear people talk about Venice (or  Treviso), the charming thought of “love” (or “being in-love”) suddenly crosses  my mind. Oh boy, its lure is simply irresistible! It’s one thing to read or hear about the place, and another thing to “actually” set one’s foot on it!

Treviso and Venice are just 20 km (12 miles) apart from each other so one can easily travel from one city to another by train. It only takes about 25-30 minutes and fares are reasonable, or just about EUR3.30 for a single train ticket.

We took a 3-day trip to  Treviso  and Venice, and afterwards realized that it’s just a small amount of time for one to fully explore the beauty and the spendor of these cities. Looking back, it would have been great to double the time. Nevertheless, I’m sharing with you now are our travel impressions so far, coupled with practical tips.

The good thing with short travel is that one tends to savour each precious moment, to embrace the gift that the “here and now” brings, and to say in awe: “Oh YAHWEH Almighty, How Great Thou Art and Thy Works!”

    The Side Tripper

    “Make sure you don’t take any side trips,” warns Schumler, from a phrase in the 1993 American film Swing Kids. If you are someone who does not have time to lose, then it is better for you to stick to your main agenda, because there is something about side tripping that submerges the soul in experiences that sometimes make you hope that time would stand still, as the experiences they bring can be more impactful than the main trip itself. It is that free flowing agenda, an unexpected sleepover or a detour that has unintentionally brought pleasant surprises. You can live without it, like you can eat a cake without its icing, but your journey may not be as meaningful. If travel is the ‘best medicine for the heart’,* then for me, side trips are secret ingredients to the most memorable travels and other events that can happen in between or off the main route of one’s itineraries. Welcome to Side Tripper, a collection of photographs and blogs about the many side trip adventures of our family and friends. *Source: The Global Commission on Aging and Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies, in partnership with the U.S. Travel Association (Los Angeles Times, December 17, 2013 by Chris Erskine)
