Saturday by Lake Iseo, Italy

This weekend we drove up to lake Iseo in north of Italy to check out  The Floating Piers. It's a site-specific installation by Bulgarian artist Christoconsisting of 100,000 square meters of yellow fabric, carried by a modular floating dock system of 220,000 high-density polyethylene cubes making it possible to "walk on water"

Who thought that one art installation would be so popular - there were tens of thousands of people trying to reach the piers resulting in a chaos in local transportation and traffic. Eventually we gave up and just enjoyed the view of the piers from above. 

Driving alongside the lake we ended up in a small village called Marone. Perfect for a afternoon swim and coffee! A spontaneous trip at its best!
