Rednesday in Rimini

For our honeymoon, my beloved and I visited Italy, the land of lovers. We chose to bide our time slowly, to relax, to appreciate, rather than to rush, rush, rush (which is our normal modus operandi). Thus we ventured to a resort town named Rimini which is off the traditional beaten path for a non-Italian tourist. It was a fun city, that's for sure. This town is but 20 or so kilometers from San Marino, on the coast of the Adriatic Sea, and is the birthplace of Fellini. We had a wonderful time at the beach, at the pubs, the clubs, at the sidewalk diners, and walking through the park that bisects the city. While in the park, not only did we see an arch from 27 a.d., built in honor of Agustus, but also a war memorial for Canada. Yep, Canada-we were surprised too. I'm posting this as a part of the It's a Very Cherry World's red themed event Rednesday.

How we wish we could return soon.


  1. It sounds like you had a wonderful time, especially since you weren't rushing! I know that after those trips where there is a crazy itinerary, you need another vacation to recover from your vacation!
    Happy REDnesday and Happy 4th!

  2. re: doggie / car

    actually I took that back in EARLY april when it was very cool outside, so i think he was probably okay...however, having been a pet owner myself, I would NEVER leave an animal or child in a car alone. Too many 'things' can happen, for sure.

  3. Anywhere on an Italian coast is heaven to me. Sounds like a wonderful trip. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a thoughtful comment. Jane F.

  4. What a romantic and delightful Rednesday post!
