Here's what 19 miles looks like in Trieste

That ugly building there is the hospital. As a landmark it's a little like the Eiffel tower. If you find it you can't get lost.

That, down there, is where I started and just beyond is the Adriatic Sea.

There's a big long ugly building there. That's my house.

Thank goodness I didn't need to stop here!

The path down to the village of Longera.

Osmizza in vicinity. Homemade wine at someone's house. Try. to. ignore. this...

The woods leading to Sincrotrone. My first time through here.

After 7k of path from Basovizza I arrived in Slovenia.

I accidentally looped around this village twice. Doh!

The bike path back to Italy.

The border between Italy and Slovenia.

Water break in Trebiciano, Italy.

View from path leading from AREA Science Park to Golf course. You can see the gulf of Trieste down there.

There you can see the gulf and the city of Trieste.

In the background you can see the hospital again, from there, I headed home.


  1. Wonderful! I especially like the picture of the road to Longera. Isn't the path to the Sincrotrone soooo cozy? Such an intimacy, I like it so much.

    I miss a picture of the long straight to Sezana, it's almost "american stile", so long and wide...

    To the other readers of the blog: remember it was rainy ;-)

  2. You're right. I didn't take a picture of that path, and I should have. I'll definitely have to take one next time. At the time, I was worried that my camera would run out of batteries before I got to the good parts of the run! :) Too bad it was such a gray day. That route would be perfect on a sunny spring day!

  3. Great pics! I am not sure that I see the resemblance between the hospital and the Eiffel Tower..? ;)

  4. J.e.a.l.o.u.s! I cross state lines but you run in two different countries. How exotic! And you definitely have tremendous will power to run through a vineyard. That would have been the end of my run. Awesome job femme! Atalanta smiles on you :-)

  5. Cattinara hospital and the Eiffel tower are practically twins... Tall? check. Gray? check. Built for the Exposition Universelle de Paris in 1889? Check. Like I said, practically twins, anyone can see that!
