It’s been a while since we had a Creaky World Tour update. It’s been heads down over the last few weeks. Have I missed anything……. Interestingly my helpful predictive text function wanted to repeatedly change CREAKY to FREAKY. Maybe it’s more appropriate at the moment. Yes a freaky world currently but after this has settled down its time to visit our beautiful world again.
Let’s see how far around the world I can get only powered by my battered old stationary exercise bike, dog walking and local runs. As my fitness tracker has died I will be using a suitable alternative for the distance calculations – Pokemon Go. So might even catch a few Pokemon on the way.
My last virtual update found me leaving beautiful Milan. As a couple we always wanted to visit but sadly left it too long. It’s a city I promise to go to as soon as I can. Stay strong.
So how much distance have I got to play with this time.
Exercise Bike – 480 miles (772km)
Running – 440 miles (708km)
Dog Walking – 160 miles (257km)
That’s 1080 miles (1737km) – no wonder my bum hurts.
So the first stop is at the port city of Trieste. Apparently it can give even Yorkshire a run for its money on a strong, biting wind. Here it’s even got a name The Bora. Trieste is clearly a brilliant place to visit with so much to do. Here are a just a few of the many attractions.
The beautiful castle – Castello di Miramare
Faro della Vittoria – historic lighthouse
Piazza dell’Unita d’Italia – the stunning city
The stunning coast – the Golfo di Trieste
Thank you Trieste for showing that’s it’s still a wonderful world.
So I have more miles left in the bank so let’s see what other beautiful locations I can visit this week.
