Time once again for the monthly Scavenger Hunt organised by Greenthumb at Made with Love. This time all of the photos are from our holiday to Verona.
Gadget : For weighing luggage so that I don't have to pay any pesky excess baggage charges.
L is for...: Torre dei Lamberti, or Lamberti Tower.
Tiny : Everything looks tiny when you're at the top of a tower.
Puzzle : It's a puzzle how I completely overlooked this category until I saw it in the other entries! Cue frantic searching through photos last night to find something suitable. This is La Casa di Giulietta and I'm sure there were jigsaw puzzles for sale in the souvenir shop. It's a puzzle to me why so many tourists flock to Juliet's house when she was only a character in a play. But yes, of course we visited. Several times.
Letter: Letters to Juliet stuck to the wall with chewing gum - eww!
Reflection: In the mirror of the Cafe Ebrius.
Fresh: Vegetables for sale in the market in Piazza delle Erbe.
Hidden: Can you see the cross and other patterns hidden in the rafters of this building?
Antique: A shop somewhere in the historic centre of Verona.
Demolition: This was such a difficult category. Even back in England I struggled to find any kind of demolition but more so in Verona where buildings are restored and preserved, not knocked down. Here's what I came up with: this is the Ponte Pietra, originally completed in 100BC. Four of the arches were demolished by German troops in World War II but the bridge was lovingly rebuilt using the original materials as far as possible.
Left: Turn left for the police station.
7pm: 7 May, waiting for the flight home to Manchester.
I really enjoyed working to a theme although some of the categories were trickier than others! Next month it will be back to normal service. Why not join us - you can find the list of June's categories here. x
