V from Venice, T from Trieste and B from Bad Homburg

It may seem a collection of strange locations in one place but I had the chance of seeing them all in the last 96 hours.

V - Venice
Venice (Italian: Venezia, Venetian: Venezsia) is a city in northern Italy, the capital of region Veneto, and has a population of 271,251 (census estimate January 1, 2004). Together with Padua, the city is included in the Padua-Venice Metropolitan Area (population 1,600,000). Venice has been known as the "La Dominante", "Serenissima", "Queen of the Adriatic", "City of Water", "City of Bridges", and "The City of Light".

T - Trieste
Trieste (Italian: Trieste; Slovene and Croatian: Trst; German: Triest, Greek: Tergèste, Τεργέστη) is a city and port in northeastern Italy very near to the Slovenian border, to the North, East and South. Trieste is located at the head of the Gulf of Trieste on the Adriatic Sea. With a population of 208,614 (2007) it is the capital of the autonomous region Friuli-Venezia Giulia and Trieste province.

B - Bad Homburg
Bad Homburg is the main town of the Hochtaunuskreis, Hesse, Germany, on the southern slope of the Taunus, bordering among others Frankfurt and Oberursel. The town's formal name is Bad Homburg vor der Höhe (translated as Bad Homburg at the foot of the hills, to distinguish it from other places of the same name), abbreviated as Bad Homburg v.d.H.

What a lucky girl I am sometimes. Actually can't complain too much can I?

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
