Noale, rainy day, sneaked into private party - day 25 of cycling Ukraine-Portugal

Noale, rainy day, sneaked into private party - day 25 of cycling Ukraine-Portugal

January 2020 · 2 min read · Veneto

Previous 2 days I spent at my host's Adriano house. repaired my bike and visited Venice twice.

For today, I had a plan to continue my cycling.

Adriano left me the key and went to the mountains (it is a weekday). Have to leave the key in "some secret place" when I'll go.

But, when I woke up, it was raining... I hate rain. Don't want to cycle in weather conditions like this. I remember cycling on rainy weather from Bulgarian border to Istanbul last year... Never again).

So, I ate my breakfast and slept again. Then woke up again, ate my lunch... The forecast gave me a hope: in the evening it should be dry.

Well, I packed all my stuff. Now I'm ready to go.

For this night, I have a deal with another Warmshowers user, Matteo, who lives close to Padova.

Started to cycle only at 5pm. Visited Noale, not so famous but something like hidden gem. It was on my way, I saw the towers and decided to make a short stop. "Ingresso libre" everywhere - it means, free entrance to historic sites.

After Noale there was a palace close to the road. When I made photos, I noticed a lot of people hanging around. The entrance was open, I went inside...

There was some kind of wine degustation. Maybe, the meeting of wine makers? I noticed that all the folks are looking at me... All of them dressed in dress-code style, and me in cycle pants. Then one of them asked, 'do I have a ticket"? Oops, sorry, guys :).

Then I went to Padova, arrived to its "suburb" (I think, historically it's a different town, but on the map it looks like a suburb) Stra.

Matteo hosted me. Now he has no electricity in the house, only a wooden stove. We ate rice that he cooked, and also buyed a pizza in local pizzeria.
