120km Verona to Ferrara

Will you take my picture?Beautiful buildings in VeronaWe had a cat to accompany us at breakfast this morning, purring by our sides as we sat at the picnic tables in Verona’s campground eating our cereal. She looked like a city cat who’d found a good thing; a spot where plenty of passing tourists will give her food. We started her day off with a saucer full of milk, then packed our bags and hit the road in the early dawn hours. It was great to beat the heat at least for a couple hours and we knew we had to get going if we wanted to make an ambitious target for the day: the walled city of Ferrara, apparently the most bike-friendly spot in Italy but quite a distance from Verona. The flat terrain certainly helped us along. Cycling along this part of Italy is rather like being in the Canadian praries. You can see miles down the road and the only scenery is made up of fields, fields and more fields. Tractors almost seem to outnumber cars and on this day they were all out harvesting the corn. As  we passed through a series of small towns, we were surprised to see Moroccan teleboutiques, which were an exact copy of their African  counterparts. Alongside, we also saw shops selling spices, tea pots and other goodies from Morocco. We stopped at one of the teleboutiques to check our email and as the Arabic music played in the background we almost felt we were back in north Africa. A Moroccan community must have developed here because of the need for workers on the thousands of farms. In the afternoon we had a fruitless search for an ice cream, finding all the shops closed for the afternoon siesta, so we pushed on and a couple hours later we got our treat: lemon sorbet popsicles with licorice stick handles. So refreshing! It was early evening before we polished off the final few kilometers and arrived in Ferrara. We gobbled down supper, put up the tent and had just started to relax when Mareno, the Italian we met and cycled with a couple days ago, showed up. A nice surprise! We caught up on our routes and then he mentioned that tomorrow was a holiday and everything would be closed so we had to add a few more kilometers to our total in a last minute dash to the grocery store. Well after dark we finally collapsed into bed and sunk into a deep sleep.

    Singapore is genuinely fascinating for its multilayered social tapestry! From Chinatown to Little India and also whatever in between, there’s a lot to experience and also uncover right here – its vibrant colors and rich history makes every edge an interesting adventure – foodies should most definitely see! If that is something that talks with you also after that Singapore need to not be missed out on as your next travel location! Hawker Centres in Singapore provide an fantastic range of local meals. Don’t miss out on attempting Hainanese Poultry Rice or Chili Crab! Gardens by the Bay were breathtaking – I especially admired Supertree Grove and also Cloud Forest – they absolutely took my breath away! The light show at night was really enchanting and an outright must-see! Singapore supplied such an incredible mix of futuristic design as well as lavish plants – from Marina Bay Sands to Henderson Waves this city is truly fantastic to uncover! Singapore’s public transportation is impressive! From its efficient city train system and simple traveling with an EZ-Link card to Sentosa Island for leisure – which boasts Universal Studios, S.E.A Aquariums, and also a lot more destinations! – their public transport has actually set new requirements. Fish tank, lovely beaches, as well as various other enjoyment for the entire family members make Singapore an superb method to spend a day. Do not miss out on Singapore’s ArtScience Museum which combines art, scientific research, as well as innovation in an impressive mix! Experiences at The Gardens By the Bay were really wonderful; with interactive exhibitions as well as captivating display screens making for an remarkable trip – certainly worth a check out! I was absolutely shocked at Singapore’s unbelievable shopping scene! From deluxe malls such as ION Orchard to Bugis Street’s vibrant markets there genuinely is something below for any shopaholic to experience! Make certain to leave some area in your traveling bag! I located Singapore Zoo among the finest zoos I’ve seen; it’s open-concept units and also immersive habitats developed a real wild animals experience, not neglecting Night Safari for included exhilaration! Singapore’s multiculturalism is one more drawcard; Chinese, Malay, Indian, and Western impacts can be seen all over from architecture to cuisine; producing a fascinating melting pot!
