Genova, again

It's funny that during my second Eurotrip last summer I did not plan intentionally to stay in Genova for a long period. I thought I was just gonna pass it by from Firenze, before then continue the journey to French Riviera.
That's what I like from open plan (and being a single traveler, of course) that you could change your itinerary at the last minute by see what's in front of you.

It happened to me, I just suddenly fall in love with this place.
I fall in love with Italian Riviera, the constant perfect weather and the people.
I even manage to come back here, after a long journey from Amsterdam to Brussel, then Charleroi, to catch a budget flight (Ryanair took my pant away, just because I had 1 kilo excess baggage! Nasty airline. Now I really miss my Airberlin flight with free 20 kgs baggage.)
And a warm welcoming weather then reminds me so much why I want to be here.
Should I mentioned that when I left Amsterdam it was 12 degrees Celcius (with 52 km/h wind speed... yeah, I'm not made it up).

It's a pity that I was too busy after coming back from my 1 month Eurotrip, I didn't have time to summarize the journey (it's all still remain notes in my scrapbook) or write it down in this blog.
But it has been wonderful, magnificent trip in brief.
Almost unreal I would say.
I couldn't describe it in words because it's just too beautiful.

Anyway, in the end my academic life has struck me back to reality.
I spent one week more in Copenhagen to have my oral exam and graduation, then had flight to Germany. Been here and there (physically) in Netherlands, but basically my minds flew somewhere in Liguria.
This place is just intoxicating.
