We met the sweetest couple on the train. A Chinese couple that helped us with our luggage, offered the most delicious Chinese nougat candies, and shared rushing to the windows to get that perfect photography shot. They were very concerned about our comfort and very kind people. How silly that we didn’t get their contact information. (You know who you are, so perhaps if you read this you will contact us.)
…we were completely shocked that we were refused taxi service to our accommodation! Apparently, if you are within a few kilometers of your destination, taxis will not take you there. You must be going a significant distance, otherwise they expect you to walk! After all, it’s only a few kilometers, “just a short distance” they say.
After begging and pleading with the taxi driver, he finally took us to our little apartment. While we were upset that we could not get a taxi from the train station in the pouring rain, we loved our accommodation. This apartment was absolutely delightful…
It had sky lights, hardwood floors, a full kitchen, gorgeous views, charm beyond necessity, and had everything one could ask for, even an elevator – unusual in Europe. It was quiet, close to the town square and all downtown amenities. http://www.residenceaqua.com/#!apartments-eng/c1dae
The last night, we enjoyed pizza at D’Napoli with unbelievably creative toppings, like pumpkin cream and pistachio and mushroom cream with truffles, among others…
Trieste – full of surprises.
