Been away so long but never far,
been distant but yet never out of reach,
been missing action but never disappeared,
been absent from here but never left.

Wanting to be different has been difficult,
challenging myself has made life complicated,
striving to achieve what i myself don’t know,
wishing for success where there is none.

Waiting for a silver lining within dark clouds,
eyeing the horizon with anticipation and eagerness,
watching the sun go down and twilight appear,
gazing at the moon creeping through the mountains.

Thinking today is when i will do it perhaps,
wondering what i want to accomplish so suddenly,
dreaming my way through glory never to be had,
hoping against hope for something which isn’t mine…

Gardaland: Adventure,Energy,Excitement


Am not much of an adventure freak nor do i get so high on these joy rides especially the roller coasters.They just seem so scary and i have always wondered how people have the guts to sit on them!!All this changed when we visited Gardaland (Italy). I had seen videos of most of the rides and the Energy ones seemed not at all my types.But i did manage to jump into a few of them and wow what an experience.I came out smiling and with a feeling of having achieved something;). Maybe because it was my first time in an Amusement Park.I can’t say what but it sure had me all excited and exhilarated.


Space Vertigo

This ride takes you right to the top of a pole.You are sitting tight in your seat safe and in no danger.You go up slowly till you reach the top.There is a great view from there.Then while you start relaxing and enjoying the scene you are dropped to the ground at full speed.The first few seconds are the most exciting.You are in the air and you feel a sense of weightlessness similar to the feeling you get during an airplane take off and landing.Then come the screams and by the time you realise what is happening you are already on the ground!!

Flying Island

Something similar to a flying saucer;). It moves upwards upwards and also rotates so you get a great view of Garda lake and also of the entire Gardaland Park.


What starts off as a simple train journey is not really that simple!!Twists and turns in and out of a man made structure,it makes you hold on to the bars. Safely tucked in your seats,the only way out is once it is over:)…


You sit in a cage which goes round and round slowly and then fast.It moves upwards and sideways and gives you the feeling which perhaps a caged animal/bird would have.It left me feeling a little giddy though the view when it goes high up is great!!

Trans Gardaland Express

After all that adrelanile rush,it is time to take a break.The best way to do so is to take a ride in the cute little mini train.


Supposedly a horror house for adults but i must say it doesn’t live upto its mark!!

Peter Pan

Time for a small boat ride.A two seater boat which moves around slow at the beginning and then increases speed.Fun and may make you feel dizzy.

Blue Tornado

Another kind of roller coaster which i somehow dint dare sit on.The screams coming from those on it made me feel perhaps this isn’t meant for me.Though my husband did take this ride and he had his share of fun.

Top Spin

As the name suggests this ride takes you for a spin.Not for the weak hearted!!

Magic Mountain

The one i dared sit in!!At the beginning neither of us were sure we wanted to be a part of this ride.But we braved it all and must say one feather in my cap…hahaha.It starts of real slow just like silence before a storm.Then you are moving at lightening speed downhill,uphill,and even upside down!!


Some other things worth mentioning are : Jungle rapids( a round boat which moves on its own),Ortobruco Tour( a smiling caterpillar), Monorotaia(mono rail) and I Corsari ( a boat through tunnels with some interesting artifacts).

Also for all those who fear roller coasters there are 4D shows which give you that feel.It is a worth a visit especially if you are visiting Italy.This website can give you a better idea :
