The Adventure To Pisa

Posted in Memoirs, Photo Journeys

Out of all the adventures from 30 days in Europe, one that took a lot of blind faith and confidence in my adventure skills was the trip to the Tower of Pisa.

I knew from the ship staff that bus 4 would take me to the train station. And so I find myself on bus 4 and for about one euro I rode for about fifteen minutes or so to the train station in Livorno.

And most of them didn’t even take U.S. dollars, but of course credit cards were ok. Since we got there right at noon, the place was pretty well closed up till 2:30 or 3, as for they take lunch break from noon to 3… yes the whole island does except for a few eateries....
