Kindergarden was off this afternoon due to teachers planning sessions. Luckily the weather is fantastic, so we brought some picknick and went to our favorite park, with the longest slides I have ever seen and a small "forrest" where the kids can run around and build huts.

Well mostly the same as in Finland. With exception of cookies dipped in milk for breakfast. Starter and main-course for lunch (when at kindergarden) and definetly more pasta than back at home. Tonight it was steamed fish and roasted potatoes. Actually one of their alltime favorites.
In general I would say, we eat very clean food here. Not many spices in the mix nut a few herbs, with the purpose to instead really catch the taste of the qualitative rawmaterials used.
Lazy morning walk in the harbour of Porto San Rocco.
Cappuccino, croissant con crema.
On the way home from the beach we had a stop at Villaggio del Pescatore for a late lunch. The kids ate already at the beach and fell asleep suitably on the road. We found a cute little fishrestaurant at the venter of the village where we could park the car in the shadow with the doors wide open so the kids could continue sleeping. The starter we enjoyed in the romantic company of two, for maincourse Rocco woke up, and for dessert also Theo was purposefully woken up. However not even Crema di Catalana was fully convincing the worth while of being awake.
After we had a walk on the shore, and to our surprise also found an open tenniscourt where we played for a while, until someone started crying.
We are currently hanging out on the Grado beach, there is a warm comforting breeze, lazy sunshine and total silence apart from light sound of rolling waves.
The kids are looking for shells to build on the already large collection, and we keep a steady eye on them from the towels.
On the way over we also found a playground that we had to try out. Theo is still not able to make own speed in the swing, and it annoys him and everyone around him enormously. After 45 min car ride some climbing and moving was welcome!
Stopped at Villa Codelli for lunch and had the most fantastic starters Taglitelle con Rosso del uovo e Tartufo. The kids had tagliatelle with goulash, and finished it all. The maincourse we selected was Tagliata con i funghi con Porcini which was very very tender. And desert classic Tiramisu, also here the children friendliness came through as it was offered with the coffee apart so the kods can have it without and we can add it later, as we shared the desert.
The environment is wonderfully green and offers a beutiful walk in the park afterwards.
All ingredients come from the area and the food is made from the core. The service was children friendly, professional and with the right tint of humor.
Home made food with local ingredients in fantastic surrounding at its absolute best!
Today is Barcolana in Trieste, but we decided to escape the masses of people and head to Gorizia for some outdoors activities.
By chance we ended up at the Gorizia castle. The kids loved it! The Prison and Musceters were surely the favorites.
Afterwards we enjoyed the sun in the park outside meanwhile the older one was drawing on the grass. (We had brought some pens and papers with us, and they both love drawing) and the younger one found some ants to study.
The fantastic part of Italy is that everything is so close by. An hour trip by car give you endless opportunities of countries, landscapes, activities and weather.
So saturday morning after breakfast we packed the car with kids, towels, picknick snacks and headed for Caorle!
With some fresh winds and lovely sunshine, a full thaey on the beach recharged all batteries!
