Remember when it rained

In the memory of a special rainy day in Florence...

It was a rainy day...

It was raining in Rome...

It was still raining outside the train when we were on our way from Rome to Florence. We were actually not paying much attention to it but wondering if we took the right train (well, La Treinitalia is rather complicated). We sat there, waiting for someone to come and check the ticket. In the end, it turned out we were on the wrong train, a slower one :|. But luckily, our tickets were still valid :| (so much thanks to a kind old man with kind smile)

This is a shot of our train's window. Green represents hope, doesn't it? :)

And it was raining still in Florence when we reached there too... Kinda moody actually. Anyway, can't tell you how much I enjoyed looking at the reflection of light on the wet stone roads there...

After settling down at the 1-star hotel, we decided to take a walk nearby to enjoy a Florence night. The rain stopped for a while. The ice-cream was still great in cold weather! (btw, we were both having a bit of sore throat at that time)

Then... it rained again.

Remember when it rained...

But it was just a small rain.... Perhaps, it was just to invite you to stay back and enjoy the scene being lightened when it came :)

Remember when it rained...

I missed the chilling weather, the rain, the reflection of light and most of all, the cold ice-cream that we shared :)...



  1. Then it's time to go again, to somewhere else :P Every single trip will give you a beautiful piece of memory ;)

    Suddenly I remember I've tried to sing this song sometime before ;)

  2. @SeineRiver: I didn't know that there is a song "Remember when it rained" :))

  3. Ha ha, it's "Remember when it rains" by Josh Groban ;)

  4. I am enlightened by your splendid works.
    I thank for the "sublime" beautiful scenery...

    Thank you for visiting my blog.
