Soooo the middle of August came around, and I realized something: “If I don’t go to the beach, then I can’t say that I had a real summer!”
This summer I managed to do a lot of great things, but I didn’t get to go to the beach. What should I do? My friends were gone and my family had already gone to the beach without me in July (aren’t they mean?? haha) :))
….And then comes a surprise: Thursday evening, August 27, my phone rang… it was my aunt. She wanted to go to beach in Falconara Marittima, Italy but not only by herself. And of course I couldn’t contain my excitement and I started yelling that I would LOVE to go as well! I told her that I would be taking my little sister, Denisa with me and it was settled.
Friday I started packing and Saturday evening, we were off.
We went with the car, and after a long car ride that seemed like it took forever, we finally arrived at Falconara Marttima which is a small town built on a hill near the sea.
I had some very memorable and beautiful days there. I took many pictures, I tanned, and I played in the sand as if I were a small child. Every evening, I went to watch the sunset on the beach which I feel is such a beautiful gift from God. In the mornings, I would go watch the rising of the sun and people of all ages running along the seashore.
I wish I could live there. Everything is so simple and beautiful. People with smiles on their faces and were always ready to help me with anything (it was hard because they do not know English, and I do not know Italian .. so we communicated by signs). I had a very difficult time saying goodbye when I had to leave, but I know that I will return soon!
On the last day, we went to visit the neighbor town Ancona. We decided to walk there and of course, it was a bad decision. We walked for a few hours, and when we finally arrived, my legs were in so much pain that I was no longer in the mood to visit anywhere or do anything. But I did anyways and I was amazed by the beauty of the city. All in all, the loooong drive there and back was so beyond worth it and that trip will forever and always stay in my mind 🙂
