Last year I drove, this year I took a train; Venice is located just 2 hrs from Riva del Garda. I stay overnite so it goes by quickly but worth every hour I walk. I am at my leisure and have no destination, taking this time seriously because every minute feels especially precious.
And because she’s hallowed out, because it’s low season and covid, it’s now much easier to see the locals and how they live – there’s only 20,000 residents – and how they love to talk of real estate and their little world.
Here’s the last vid I took. As I lean back and put down my phone, a sigh of contentment, knowing the experience will linger long after I’ve left la serenissima.
