Evening Stroll

Wander around any European city on a warm summer evening, and you will find people out and about. Enjoying an aperitivo, window shopping, meeting up with friends, listening to street performers... tourist destination or not. There is such an energy, a feeling of shared community, to the piazzas and placas and platze no matter what country you are in, what language is spoken around you. This particular evening on the Riva in Split was no exception. This is one of the things I absolutely and truly love about being here in Europe and Italy.


  1. I love this photo, it reminds me of evenings spent back home spent with family and friends, just relaxing and watching the world go by.

  2. oh yes! I love this about Europe, especially Italy! I have many memories from my time there, doing the evening stroll while eating gelato, and what seemed like the entire population (mother, child, grandfather) would all be out. It's a wonderful tradition, and it's sad that nothing of the sort exists in most American cities. The closest thing we have here in Davis, California is the Saturday Farmer's Market. Thanks for popping in over at my blog!


What's your view of the world? I love to hear yours too!
