The train departed at 10 PM, along the way sometimes beside the sea at the west side of the country there was many yaught and nice beaches.
Train arrived to Pisa city about 2 PM and like every time, we have to learn from the transportation to get to the Leaning tower of Pisa after that we got the map and we took the bus. We took the bus about 15 minutes to the Pisa tower (after we almost been the victim of the pick-pocketer in Bus :S) We arrived to the Leaning tower of Pisa, it was so nice when we saw it first time, there are a lot of tourist of course it's the 1 in the 7 of the world and there are many shop selling the solvenier and we bought many things from there. The architecture of the Leaning tower mostly made from marble as long as the architecture of the church in front was so nice. we stayed at the Pisa not for long time, after that we took the train through Florence to Venice. The train from Florence to Venice was luxurious it's call EuroStar, many people called Ferrari on the rail and I thought the same it was running so fast we got to Venice about 10 PM.
First time we reached to Train station at Venice, it's beside the Grand canal and there are boats cruising in the river, first time I've seen that moment, I said to myself "I will come back again some day!" it adores me a lot. but we cannot waste too much time there, we had to find the hotel reserved. After we check for the hotel we knew that it's located at the land side of Venice called "Mestre" so we have to take the bus back from Island side(Venice) to Land side (Mestre).
[05-07-2009] We woke up at the early morning and immediately we ask for another night at the hotel, but bad luck, it wasn't available but there was another besides hotel so we went there to get it. We find the transportation map and bought the 2 days ticket of transportation which can use with public transportation in Venice and Mestre then we took the bus to Venice. We got to Venice and firstly we find for the breakfast, we got one nice Italian restaurant and ordered a lot Big pan Pizza and Spaghetti etc.. We walked through many lanes beside the canals we sat at the garden and captured a lot of photos. We got in to the first boat to the Saint Mark pier which being the central landmark and gathering place of Venice, we walked like observation to almost every lanes and bought many cones of pure yogurt ice-cream.
The st.Mark's Square means the drawing room of Europe and I have truly no doubt about the architectures and the meaning.
We got the plan for finding the nice and quiet place to see the sunset by searching in the map, and we found one place which there might be not much of people for we can have some rest there, finally we find one, it's located at the opposite side of St.Mark Square, I took about 2-3 pier stop to get there. There are dormitory there and there are benched for sit and relax until the sun set about 9 PM then we went to find for the traditional dinner and went back to Hotel.
[06-07-2009] This was the last day in Venice, we check out from the Hotel and carry all stuffs to the Train station, we booked the ticket to Budapest (Hungary) at night and we deposit all of our stuffs there at the train station. This day was like an free day, we just took every number of the boats to every lanes of the canal and have a nice food, the sky was so dull and quite cold for the weather but we just took it and captured a lot of photos. We find for the sovenior and bought some fruits and taked away food for dinner along the train to Budapest which will took quite long period through Slovenia and Croatia.
[07-07-2009] We woke up at the Slovenia-Croatia border because of the immigration police wanted to check for our passport, and We got the problem!! "We hold the Thai Passport and Croatia wasn't in European Union(schengen)" at that time, we tried to tell them that we just pass your country to Hungary but it was un acceptable, they told us that we have to get down from the train and got back Ljubljana (Slovenia) then went another way to Budapest. We had no choice we had to went out from Croatia. We was so tried that day and just wanted to go some how to the Hungary, so we went to Slovenia Airport and took the fight to Budapest(it's cost a lot).
