I was thinking of some places to get away this summer and since we haven’t planned to take a long trip across Asia, chances are either we’ll travel within Europe or visit some places here in Sweden that I haven’t been to yet. Since hubby and me are working full time, travelling is our definite choice for rest and relaxation. Anyhow, the place that occurred to me and only if I were to decide I would have a second trip to San Marino. There are places where one visit enough but there are also those which I like to see again and again. And the Republic of San Marino is one country I want to visit once more.
Honestly, I didn’t know anything about this country until hubby drove me to Italy quite a few years ago. The plan was not even to drive to San Marino but he was supposed to show me the city of Verona (Italy), where Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet was played. Unfortunately, the heavy rains caused us to change route though we were almost there. We reached Rimini, the other city in Italy, late at night. The next day, we drove to San Marino instead of driving back to Verona. I learned the moment we were there that it is a country surrounded by Italy. The reason why I want to visit San Marino again is the feeling of being on high land is like I am on top of the world. And on top of it I can see Italy in all directions. Not only that but the country’s structures and architectures reveal its historical foundation.
