True Friends

My husband and I went on a Europe vacation last year and one of the highlights of our trip was meeting a group of tourists who became our friends up to now. Sometimes you really never know where you can find true friends. My husband and I were just passing time as we are just waiting for our late evening train ride going to Rome. We have done the Gondola ride, had our picture taken at Plaza de San Marco, had a tour at the Dodge Palace and checked out the wood cupola, tried Venice’s pizza and gelato, and even checked out the souvenir shops located in the small streets of Venice. So we have done everything that we can in Venice and so we just sit in one of the benches facing the Grand Canal as we watch the gondoliers had fun while waiting for tourists to take a ride when we bumped into a group of tourists and we soon found out that we all came from the same country.

We hit it off right then and there. We decided to have coffee in one of the coffee shops near the Grand Canal with a beautiful view of the garden filled with garden finial and there we talk for hours. I don’t know but for some reasons, it is like we knew each other for a long time already. We laugh like there is no tomorrow and chat and chat for hours.

Then the coffee extended until dinner where we moved to a restaurant near the train station so we won’t miss our ride going to Rome and looks like our garden weathervanes are all pointing us in the same direction as they are heading to Rome too the following day. This means we can have more time to get to know each other.

It was just a short time that we spent together when we were all tourist in Europe but I am really glad that up to now, we still keep in touch and they are one of our very true friends.
