About old buildings and battlefields

Yesterday was my last morning in Trieste. Again it was sun-drenched. After another copious breakfast with the good espresso I walked to the railway station to buy a single fare ticket to Gorizia for the next part of my trip. At half past eleven the train left – it took me past all spots I had been or hiked in the past few days. Continue reading

Therefore I first went to the west to cross the river Isonzo (in Slovenian Soča). Here the river is wide with artificial rapids; I crossed it over a long footbridge. Continue reading

Gorizia: a tour of the city and over the border

This morning breakfast was as elaborate as it was in Trieste, but just slightly different: no longer the grilled eggplants and zucchini or the grated fennel by Signore Stefano, but pickled vegetables, like sweet-and-sour of paprika (agrodolce di peperoni) or mushrooms in oil (funghi sott’olio), which are tastier here than I can prepare it, large green olives with little acidity and small gherkins with a lot of acidity. Of course there are many sweets, but where is my lemon pie…?! Continue reading
