    Day 73a. Venice, Italy

    October 16, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    When in Venice we have a tradition with Julie Lewington and Neil Crossing to eat fresh strawberries by the Grand Canal. This was our priority after breakfast.
    Venice, the capital of northern Italy’s Veneto region, is built on more than 100 small islands in a lagoon in the Adriatic Sea. It has no roads, just canals – including the Grand Canal thoroughfare – lined with Renaissance and Gothic palaces. The central square, Piazza San Marco, contains St. Mark’s Basilica, which is tiled with Byzantine mosaics, and the Campanile bell tower.
    With this longer history you would think they could put in a few more sign posts to let you know how to walk around without getting completely lost. But no. We get lost everytime we move off the main thorough fare. In fact we can even get lost when we are on it. This even when Ron is normally a flaming homing pigeon.

    Welcome aboard, madame

    November 1, 2016 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 52 °F

    We had a nice morning in Venice, with a continental breakfast in our hotel, then a wander through the neighborhood (in which we didn't get lost). I bought a postcard, wrote it, stamped it, and mailed it--there's a first time for everything!

    We got on the cruise ship and immediately found my parents, so we all gathered in the buffet dining room for lunch. Mom needed to rest her sore knee, so we dropped her in her stateroom and explored the ship. Between that, the muster drill, and unpacking, the afternoon went quickly.

    We had a great dinner (Lobster Pad Thai for me) at the Red Ginger restaurant, then went to the Sail Away party of some new acquaintances in their ginormous suite, which spans the entire width of the ship. Alas, we didn't sail away--we were fogged in. So, Mom and Dad went to bed, and Kathryn and I went to have a drink and listen to live music in the lounge. The ship started moving right before we were about to go back to our cabin. It was still foggy but very pretty.

    Mitten in Venedig

    May 12, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Auf dem Rückweg von Murano sparen wir uns den langen Seeweg rund um die Lagune und steigen einfach auf der anderen Seite der Altstadt am Ospedale aus. Auf dem Weg zum Markusplatz sind wir plötzlich mitten in Venedig, abseits der Touristenströme...Read more
