Lignano Beach

Lignano Beach 1

It’s summer once again. Where are you headed? “To the beach,” I think, would be the dominant answer. My kids certainly would say that too. I personally am not a beach person…I practically grew up going to beaches but having brown for a skin color would mean a much darker complexion after spending an hour under the sun…

It’s a good thing my kids didn’t have that thinking. They love the beach, they love water. I once heard my son ask his dad, “Can we just live here so we can play all day in the water? Or can we have a house with a pool?” lol. If it doesn’t cost that much I would personally say yes.

Oh, these photos were taken at Lignano, a town in Norther Italy, about 7 hours away from Vienna. The travel itself is really interesting—I get to take drive by photos of the country scenery and I get to sleep an hour or two. lol. We stayed at an apartment for short-term accommodations – transient – which I wrote about here.

Since it’s indeed summer, it’s time again to go and explore the beaches, if not then we plan on staying in Germany for a week or two. My mom-in-law lives in Nürnberg so we can stay there like before and explore the enchanting city. Hubby and I would also like to have some “us” time so I’ve been scouting online for short-term rentals in Berlin. We plan to take down what remains of the wall. Kidding aside, we plan on going about the city and of course see the historical wall.

I have been to many websites – I can say that each are the same until I stumbled on Roomorama. I like the photos they provided on the website – up to date and just by looking you’ll know they are scouring for the best rooms, apartments for their customers. I was so impressed at how La Carmina reviewed the place they stayed at once which was booked via Roomorama. There were pictures – flat screen TV, DVD Player and a cabinet that seems to fit a lot of stuff! I suggest you see for yourself what she posted and I’m sure you’d be convinced to book your next apartment rental at Roomorama.

Check out this vid I got from their site.

Well, how about a really neat apartment by the beach, with a view of a romantic sunset from the window?

For Travel Tuesday, Blue Monday and Ruby Tuesday.


  1. We have the same thinking as your son. If it’s just me, I would be living near the beach. But unfortunately our livelihood requires us to live in the city.

  2. From the looks of things, I’d say everyone had a great time!


    If you have a penchant for red,
    Then scarlet will go to your head;
    But if it is gold
    You’d rather behold,
    Then plant yellow roses instead.

  3. I would love to live by the water – which in these parts, takes a real lot of $ or €, more that is affordable. Yet, at least a vacation near the water gets us in the mood for fun. The kids that is – Patti and I prefer to sit under an umbrella near the beach, craving not the sun but the breezes from off the water. However, when i was way younger, family vacations were often at a place called Brigantine on the New Jersey shore. Yes, the beach is where our memories start!

  4. I’ve been to Lignano, and I agree with your children; I’d rather stay there. The climate is superb, the food, not to talk of the ice cream is prima, and the people are so friendly.
    I’d go back to Italy tomorrow if I could.

  5. it is just too bad that we were not able to enjoy much of our summer vacation because it rains during the afternoon. we had scheduled many trips that did not come into fruition. buhuhuh

  6. I can see that the kids are having fun….

    i’m not an avid fan of sunlight because i dont like looking myself tan but here in Europe, sunlight or summer time is the best season ever where we could get tan..hahaha

    visiting from my beach fav.

  7. I, on the other hand, would not like to live near the beach hehehe, but would love to have a est house by the beach… anyways, your kids looks like they really had a ton of fun! visiting from TT!

  8. wow, 7 hours of travel to get to the beach.. awesome.. pero saya ng travel siguro…. 🙂

    yayks… sarap magdrive diyan wala gaanong traffic… hahahah… we live by the beach.. unfortunately you can’t see the shore anymore…. hahaha… was here sis…

  9. I have used roomorama before, no surprise that la carmina wrote wonderful things about them. i have been introducing roomorama to my family and friends, it’s a great way to find a place to stay when traveling. much cheaper than a hotel and you get great tips from your host AND a much better deal with much more space. im going to bali this december and i cant wait already, just look at the amazing villas that roomorama has on their site!

  10. wow! soon my little boy will be swimming on the beach na rin…exciting. nice photo sis…visiting from tuesday travels…

  11. Hi sis, my new travel blog is up! I’m gathering new followers for now and building my blogroll and if you don’t mind I want this added to mine. 🙂

  12. Looks like a fun day at the beach! I have tried Roomorama too and I am definitely a fan. A lot of times you can find really great places for cheap too!

  13. Hello sis, I’m back here! Just so you know, I just added this page to my blogroll now too. 🙂

    Thanks for adding mine See ya!

  14. just thought i give you guys a heads up. i didnt see this post before i went to singapore and stayed with roomorama. to my surprise, they were on the front page in the newspaper while i was in singapore, it was so cool! the place we stayed at was really really convenient to everything, although singapore generally has a great transport system in place already. this experience was so good, i didnt pay as much as i would have for a hotel in singapore. encourage all u travellers who want to save some $$ to try roomorama out!
