Snapshots from Udine (April 2018)

Udine, Italy

Our first day trip abroad as a family with our baby boy V. was on a Sunday to Udine, Italy. Why did I choose Udine? A silly reason really. Some time ago I wrote a post where I mentioned a city I visited for each letter of the English alphabet. Of course, there were letters such as X, Y and Q for which I couldn’t add a city and it’s very unlikely that I’ll ever visit such faraway exotic places. But even though I haven’t visited a city whose name begins with letter U that at least could be easily rectified. You see, there’s a town called Umag in Croatia that I could visit but another thought came to my mind too: I could go to Udine, Italy. It’s not far away and it’s way more fun to visit Italy than to go to Umag which is actually a lovely seaside town famous as a venue for a major tennis tournament. Fast forward a year and I’m thinking about travelling with our baby when I remember my idea about Udine. Yes, that would be a perfect first day trip abroad with a baby since Udine is less than 2.5 hours away from us (one way). And I love Italy! So, that’s why we visited Udine.

As it turned out, Udine is a rather pretty Italian town with porticoes which I absolutely adore (I first saw them in Bologna). We spent our time in Udine walking around leisurely and taking in the sights. It was a sunny and warm day and our baby V. seemed to enjoy being out and about with us. He was a perfect little traveller 🙂 He clearly takes after his mum 😉 When I get the chance I’ll blog more about our visit so this post is just a teaser of what’s to come.

Enjoy the photos of Udine!

  1. What a gorgeous place – not somewhere I had ever come across before. I do love the idea of picking somewhere purely based on the first letter too, what a great way to inspire yourself to try somewhere new. Thanks for linking up with #citytripping

  2. I love the idea of visiting cities for each letter of the alphabet! I’ll have to start doing that too 🙂
    Udine is one of the cities in Italy I haven’t visited yet. It looks very beautiful.

  3. I must admit I feel a little envious that you can get to Italy in 2.5 hours! Good for you getting out and visiting a new place with your little one! Wonderful photos! #farawayfiles

  4. What a beautiful town you discovered as part of your ABCs! You can come to Germany and visit Quedlinburg which I wrote about previously or to the Netherlands for Zaanse Schans or Croatia for Zadar or Zagreb! X though…hrmm that eludes me! #FarawayFiles

  5. It looks so pretty, Tanja. What a great choice for your baby’s first trip. And even more wonderful that it was so easy for you to visit another country. I’ll look forward to finding out more on your next post. Thanks for sharing on #FarawayFiiles

    1. thanks:) yes, one of the rare benefits of living in a small country is that you’re surrounded by other countries:)) a day trip to Italy & Slovenia is a piece of cake for me because of my town’s location:)
