Be fresh or be dull that is a matter of seeing the opportunities or not.
Not everything can be planned, sometimes we have to be fresh and improvise
it is said that if two are kissing under the Bridge of Sighs in old Venice
so it means lifelong happy love.
Why travel all the way to Venice – though it is an amazing place
if you pass a beautiful white bridge along with a “kiss-topic”
pull him or her into the small idyllic white bridge for kissing
if it works in Venice so probably it works here in a private park too
and opportunities don’t come by themselves but only if we are fresh.
“I met my husband, Will Smith, when I was nineteen on an audition to be his date on the movie *The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air* they said I was too short to play the part”

With the inspiration from Ailsa and her absolutly worth visting blog
“Where’s my backpack?“
this is my version of the travel theme this week “Fresh“.
“Ponte dei Sospiri”
“The Bridge of Sighs”
Maybe the worlds most “dangerous” bridge ever..!
The bridge itself is safe enough – the bridge is escape secured and made of white limestone and has windows with stone bars – it passes over the Rio di Palazzo and connects the “new” prison to the interrogation rooms in the Doge’s Palace
it was designed by Antoni Contino
(whose uncle Antonio da Ponte had designed the Rialto Bridge in Venice)
the bridge was built in 1602.
So far so good.
But a local legend says that lovers will be granted eternal love and bliss
if they kisses while they are on a gondola at sunset under the Bridge Of Sighs.
So take care who you kiss under this bridge or who you let kiss you.
Kiss only if you are absolutely sure, that you are kissing the only one.
Travel Theme Bridge
with inspiration from Ailsa’s excellent blog
take a look the challenge here “Where’s my backpack”
this’s my version of the theme “Bridge”.
Read my lips
never ever kiss a dromedary
it’s in fact unshaven and has a totally terrible bad breath I know it..!
On a 10 day trip in the Sahara with dromedaries as transport
we stopped in an oasis for the night
both humans and dromedaries needed catering and rest.
Our Tunisian friends started to cut the characteristic flat cacti in sticks
2 of the young participants on the trip (they were 10-12 years) watched them interested
the dromedaries ate with well-being those cactus bars, ate all the thorns too
the tunisians lured the young people to keep cactus bars with their lips
and so dromedaries took these with great caution
as the tunisians found out that I stood with a big smile on looking at the funny scenario
they handed me a piece of cactus too.
Teaser as I’m, so I hold the cactus with my teeth
instead of just holding it with my lips
the dromedary nipped careful for the cactus, but didn’t get it
then the animal tried again
resulting in that I got a big wet kiss and the dromedary got the cactus
and I found out that dromedaries are unshaven and has a terrible bad breath.
Perhaps one of the world’s best kiss benches
the old tree leans romantic out from the bank of the beautiful lake
close to the water surface but not too close
as soon as spring gets hold of the tree and until late autumn
so the tree covers the nature-made seating with a camouflage
age does not matter for using the bench, just a little mobility
then in deep secrecy sweet secrets could be exchanged.
When autumn storms have removed the camouflage
and winter’s frosty air coming, so nothing can hide anymore only if it is foggy,
but in the circumstances it is also too cold anyway.
