Following our agreements, Bodypack had been kind enough to have us each choose a bag on the basis of some thirty selected models: backpacks, computer bags, travel bags ... Our preferences went towards very varied ranges and colors.
With our luggage, so we took the bus to Venice destination Monday May 15 at 9 p.m.
After a long night of travel, not very restful it must be admitted, we have finally discovered the romantic city! We were impressed with its majestic architecture.
As the stay was short, we immediately focused on the neighborhood San Marco: walk on the famous square overlooked by its Campanile and visit of the Doge's Palace, residence of the magistrates of the Venetian Republic ... without forgetting the Ponte dei sospiri through which prisoners were brought before the judges.
We took advantage of the lunch break to discover the typical dishes and taste new flavors. Che buona la pasta!
After some free time, we continued our walk to the neighborhood of Dorsoduro and visited the Galleria dell'Accademia where we enjoyed the works of the Italian Renaissance.
Before leaving, and as part of our school program, we made an appointment with the firefighters of Venice: I Vigili del Fuoco. They explained their procedures to us in the event of flooding, and showed us how they desalinate seawater to extinguish fires.
The day after our arrival, a meeting was also scheduled with the Technical Services of the City of Venice: Ms. Ferrari, from the Lagoon Observatory, made us aware of the many problems generated by pollution, the evolution of the tides and the displacement of the seabed due to tourist liners. Assisted by her employee, she explained to us the extent and diversity of the actions taken to preserve the lagoon. This interview was particularly interesting and enriching. We would like to thank our Italian interlocutor who was able to communicate to us all the dedication and passion she puts in defending a great cause!
Of course, our bags Bodypack accompanied us throughout our visits. After relieving them of our travel belongings at the hotel, they allowed us to easily carry everything we needed for the day: bottle of water, our picnic (when we were not having lunch at the restaurant), camera, glasses, extra clothes ... Che comodi gli zaini Bodypack!
Of course, the story of our stay in Venice does not end there! ...
Here we are at the agreed meeting to tell you the rest of our educational trip ...
To make it practical, pleasant and reasonable for our budget, we were staying in a hotel complex on the island of Jesolo. This has led us to constantly move by boat: we particularly appreciated! And it allowed us to relax, in the evenings, by the pool or by the sea after long days of sightseeing!
On the third day of our stay, we had the pleasure of going to the islands of Murano and Burano. AT Murano we witnessed the work of a glassblower who, in a matter of minutes, shaped before our eyes a wonderful little horse. What dexterity and what precision work… timed, what is more, because you cannot afford to let the glass solidify without having completely finished the desired object. We have discovered a new profession.
AT Burano, it is the colored houses that caught our eye. The colors are frank, vivid and shine under the sun. A hard "fireworks"! While walking on the island we were able to be in contact with the local population and we took great pleasure in exchanging a few words and glances with the elderly people who observed us with kindness and curiosity. The day ended with a tasting of a Gelato tre gusti in the central square. We must admit that the Italians are unbeatable in this area! Che delizia!
By Thursday, it was time to head back home. On our way, we stopped at Verona, city of lovers, to visit the Arena, impressive by their size, stroll through the streets of the city and especially discover the house of Romeo and Juliet… with the famous balcony! This brought us back, for a moment, to the days of Shakespeare's plays.
The legend says that we can send a letter to Juliet so that she will grant our wish. We did so… we wouldn't have wanted to miss an opportunity!
Of course, throughout these days, our bags Bodypack have not left us. We will not stop repeating how much their multiple pockets and gussets make them modular and particularly practical for this type of trip. Ideal and large enough to transport our belongings for the entire stay and perfect during the day, to always have a bottle of water, a camera, our picnic and our small personal effects with us.
Regarding their look, we let you appreciate on the basis of the photos we have taken!
Once again, thanks to Bodypack for making our dream come true and for helping us expand our culture.
GRAZIE for the particularly educational and pedagogical project that its open and dynamic employees agreed to carry out with us ... by providing us with the necessary means!
The little extras of travel thanks to BODYPACK, and the BIG PLUS of BODYPACK bags !!
Thanks to our partnership with the company Bodypack we were able, during our trip to Venice and Verona, to grant ourselves a few small pleasures that were not originally planned ...
From the first day of our arrival, we were able to treat ourselves to a small typical meal on a pretty square in the district of Dorsoduro. A restaurant accepted to welcome us: we were still 26 to squeeze in! The staff, very open and available, advised us on local specialties: we feasted on pasta, gnocchi, risotti vari… and provided us with batteries so that we could recharge our phones… essential for photos with our bags Bodypack !
The following days, we had lunch with packed lunches provided by the hotel that we slipped in the morning in our backpacks. Bodypack, very practical for this purpose. These baskets consisted of classic sandwiches, certainly nutritious enough, but which hardly aroused our taste buds. So, we gave each other gourmet moments to compensate. On the island of Burano, for example, under a bright sun and our backpacks Bodypack filled with memories, we were happy to be able to taste a beautiful gelato tre gusti to refresh us! We let you imagine the face of the ice cream merchant ... delighted to see his tiny shop invaded by 26 freaks jabbering a language he did not understand! ... But also that of other customers, relegated behind a wall of magnificent backpacks colorful, much less happy to wait until we have chosen among the thousand flavors on offer!
But now let's come to BIG PLUS bags Bodypack. As we have already explained in our previous article, we particularly appreciated the multiple qualities of our "travel companions"! First of all, they are very spacious with many pockets and storage which allow a practical business organization. The closures are easy and resistant, the shoulder straps and the back of the bags are reinforced for a better comfort and avoid contact with tissue which could end up burning the skin. We weren't cold in Venice! The graphics is very nice: varied, original and modern. There is something for all tastes and for all clothing looks!
Often, during our photo breaks, we were approached by tourists attracted by the colors and the design of our bags. Of course, we were proud to explain our partnership and each time it was an opportunity to communicate the address of the e-commerce site of Bodypack so that they too can indulge themselves by ordering a nice bag.
In fact, to conclude, we thought that Bodypack, in memory of this partnership, could consider creating a limited series "special edition Venice 2017" ... The bags could honor the colors of Italy, the Dolce Vita and the Vespa, stylized Venetian monuments in two-tone version , the gondolas… Cosa does not say?
Once again we would like to thank Bodypack for accompanying us in this project which was very educational for us and which allowed us to build up lasting memories!
DI NUOVO GRAZIE BODYPACK PER IL TUO GENEROSISSIMO AIUTO !
