Almost 2 years ago I wrote one of the first posts on my blog about the most popular North - Eastern's coast in Italy – Lido di Jesolo (Venice). This summer I was in Jesolo for more than 2 weeks.
For those who're saying one cannot go alone on the beach and not get bored or feeling lonely, well it's not true.. I spent the most of the time alone and it was amazing. I remember that last peaceful week with such a nostalgy.
Imagine you wake up by the sound of the waves, you jump out of bed and run to the terrace and admire the wonderful sunny day, the sea, the beach, you have your breakfast while enjoying the amazing view, then you go on the beach and there you have everything you need for a perfect day: sand, sea, sun, relaxe, a book, music...a lot of music, magazines, cold drinks, more sun, the sound of the waves which brings you peace...just what you need...
and let's not forget about the walks on the beach, the breathe taking sunrises and colorful twilights, sea view, night walks on the beach, mm I wanna go back in time..
As I said in my previous post, there are a lot of things you can do in Jesolo and now there are even more. What's new ? A corn labirinth, a sightseeing bus and a ferris wheel.
And of course there's still the 13km long street with shops, restaurants, bars and everything you want.
This year I saw the sand sculptures, but I missed the air extreme show and a concert which I wanted to see that was a 3 minutes walk from where I was staying..Well that's just me ..- being me.

How it's done:
A pound-up is a specifically engineered solid block of sand created with hand or power tampers by compacting wet sand into containment forms. This will render a mass of solid and densely packed snad inside the forms. From this solid block a snad sculpture is carved, as the forms are removed in sequence from the top of the pound-up, down. All forms are removed in the final process and nothing remains except a densely packed mass of sand and water that has been sculpted into the finished artwork.
Amazing and hertbreaking.. Isn't it? and than there's the thought of how much work! but it's so beautiful..
I have a new friend, Zooga
