BTW: Good morning Hong Lynn!
(See, I updated, as promised. Will try to update more frequently in future... and I hope you had fun last night! Let's meet up again soon, ok?....)
Beach-side party town Rimini:
I found Rimini very cosy (quiet) and quaint (small town feeling)... but according to my Italian friend, Rimini is like the Italian version of Ibiza... where hordes of humans flock to during the summer holiday season (exploding this little town's population from a couple of thousands to hundreds of thousands):
(I happened to go there during the "off season" though so it was very quiet, with most of the famous clubs being closed :( so I couldn't check them out....)
The beaches looked quite nice (fairly good sand, clean, calm surroundings) but my friend said that during summer, it's complete madness - with almost every square inch of sand covered with people trying to roast themselves to a nice shade of brown:
Historic town of Bologna:
Another town that I visited in Italy was Bologna, which is famous for its old covered walkways:
There is also a very unusual looking cathedral there, the Basilica di San Petronio:
The inside is just like most gothic style cathedrals but the facade looks strangely unfinished with its obvious layers of bricks on the top....
There are also a set of historic towers, called the Two Towers, but apparently the many locals refer to it as the Ugly Towers *lol*:
I hope you didn't find that too boring... (since Rimini and Bologna are not the usual tourist hot spots). Anyway, if you did, then hopefully you'll find the next round of photos more interesting... :)
(I'll post up some photos of Rome soon)
