31-05-2017 Bong & His First Trip to Lucca

The bus to Marina di Pisa never came...
So we decided not to wait and just head back to our guesthouse~
Besides capturing the nice street scenes,
we did not forget to take some selfies too!
Hei Arne...
Ser her! (Look here!)
Lol~
We stopped by
at this Caffe Miami
to have a break...
After a glass of beer,
we continued walking.
passed by Bagni di Nerone,
(The Baths of Nero)
an archaeological site in Pisa...
Then 'home' again to enjoy a simple dinner
made from some 'ingredients' bought from Carrefour 
and not to forget,
a bottle of red wine!
The next day,
we walked to the bus stop,
Pisa P.Za Manin
and took the bus to another small city named
Lucca!
The ticket would be cheaper
if you buy in at machine,
or a shop...
Along the way,
the breathtaking suburb italian scenery 
was just blowing our mind away...
Plus...
the great driving skill of 
the bus driver that drove perfectly
across the tiny narrow alley was also very impressive!!
The VAI bus took around 30 minutes,
from Pisa to Lucca.
It is better to get the time schedule of the bus departure
when you arrive at Lucca
so that you can plan ahead.
After getting the time schedule
from the Vai Bus ticket counter,
we started exploring Lucca...

26-05-2017 Bong & His First Greek Food in Italy

The weather was so nice
and we spent sometime taking picture
at Ponte Di Mezzo~
After that we continue walking...
passing by Palazzo Gambacorti
(Gambacorti Palace)
and Comune di Pisa
(the Municipality of Pisa building).
We walked,
and walked,
and ended up at this square
Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II.
At that time,
they were like having 
an international festival...
We saw spanish food,
greek food,
mexican food
and many more...
Though 
we just had our brunch,
we decided to order something light to eat~
We ordered this
Piatto Gyros
(not even sure if the name was in italian or greek),
and it was really good!
After that,
the time to take bus to the beach was approaching,
so we decided to walk to the bus stop...
According to Google,
the bus stop is near to the river side...
We walked back to the river side,
passed by this amazing little church,
Santa Maria della Spina...
passed by another beautiful bridge,
Ponte della Cittadella
where the Cittadella e Arsenale Repubblicano
(Citadel and Republican Arsenal)
is just right beside it~
We ended up walking to
one of the main terminals instead of a bus stop,
because it was holiday and it seemed not right
at that little quiet bus stop.
We met up with more people
that wanted to go to Marina di Pisa beach as well...
However,
the bus never turned up!!
