WPC: Sur+prize

It’s best if you take everything as a surprise. After all, If you think about it – it is.

I like to say that I don’t have any sense of direction because it’s good to keep getting surprised about where you are. Similarly, I’d never wish or even pay to know what the future holds. Especially since everywhere you look there are signs that the best future is behind us yet.

Before we check out a surprising destination from last weekend and since I was strolling around instead of doing my regular weekly recap, here is a look back at the last two weeks on my blog. There were:

And now a city that I’d never ever choose for a Saturday trip destination. And yet when I asked amore where he’d like to go, this is what he suggested and far be it from me to counter it, especially since he usually prefers to catch up on his sleep on weekends. He passes it daily on his commute to work and he says he likes the sea there.

It’s an old city by name and age, and yet modern, clean and orderly. It has a major port with departures to Corsica and Sardinia and even Algeria, and two thermal power stations. It is called Civitavecchia.

Quite a leap from my usual towns of Tuscany and not one I’d choose for home, but a welcome change of pace, if only for one afternoon.

    That’s a good idea to consider one’s lack of directional skills as an opportunity for surprises. Can I do that with my terrible memory, too?

    1. Thank you, Claudia. Maybe one of these days or years you’ll board a big ship and it will take you here. (But flying is faster.)

      1. I love the idea of seeing it myself. And the idea of a glamorous sea voyage. Very appealing. Flying is efficient, though. You are right. Maybe someday. You are continually whetting my appetite.
