Rimini Italy






Here are some more photos from my recent trip to Rimini Italy. These are along the Adriatic sea. Obviously low season, once the warmer weather sets it, if it ever does since it has been rather rainy wet and cooler than normal, this beach will be packed, especially in August. Why in August you may ask? In August Italian cities, towns and villages almost literally become ghost towns as everyone is on vacation/holiday for at least two to three weeks during August. Companies shut down with the exceptions of grocery stores, some pharmacies and gas/petrol stations. Basically the bare necessities. Many people flee their homes to pack the beaches, mountainsides or go abroad whether it is within Europe or over the oceans. Seems though this year, not as many may consider going abroad, especially to the United States. Yes the Euro is strong at the moment but MANY things have gone up. Things such as food, gas/petrol and salaries haven’t risen to compensate for such an increase. How much of an increase you ask? In a matter of a couple of months, one liter of long shelf life milk went up about 20 euro cents. What is 20 cents you ask? For someone living on a limited budget 20 cents here twenty cents there adds up at the end of the month.

  1. It seems like every time I turn around the gas prices are increasing!
    Unfortunately it takes a huge increase in gas prices for there to be an interest in alternative fuels and smaller cars with better gas mileages.
