Day 1: London to Trieste

After a hectic Carnival weekend in Notting Hill, we had to get up at 08:00 this morning to catch our train to Stansted Airport for our flight to Italy.

We arrived at Ronchi dei Legionari at 15:35 and then caught bus 51 into Trieste. After about one hour on the coach we arrived at Trieste bus station. We made the short walk to our hotel, Hotel Alabarda, in Via Valdirivo and checked in. Our room was massive and the bathroom was very clean. After dumping our backpacks, we set off for the harbour to find our ferry. We got some info from the ferry office then went for coffee and 'tost'.

After returning to the hotel and chilling for about 2 hours, we went out for dinner - cottoletta Milanese for Deb and pizza for me. The food was OK, but the service was non-existant and it was all quite expensive! On our way home, we stopped for gelato!

Chat soon,
