October road trip part 3

Trieste, beautiful city by the sea.


  1. I would like to go there. Have you read the book by Jan Morris about it?

  2. Oh yes, I did, one of the reasons I wanted to go.
    Also because James Joyce lived there for many years and his traces are everywhere.
    As for Rilke, Duino Castle and the surrounding area is a must.
    Do go, it is a unique place!

  3. I read the Jan Morris book years and years ago. Must re-read it, and these photos are giving me a great big nudge to do so. Plus I've always fascinated by border areas and the mix of cultures.

  4. What beauty! What a special place. Your photos are lovely.
