    La Spezia to Mira

    December 28, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 4 °C

    Today started with a trip to downtown La Spezia (a short walk from our apartment). The daily Farmer's market is awesome and the waterfront definitely has an old school charm to it. Most of the day was spent on the road to Venice (actually Mira...about 20 minutes outside of the city). There was fresh snow on the pass...thanks Donn for driving!!! We stopped in Parma for another lunch of cheese and meat and fruit and crackers. Parma is the home of Parmesan cheese so of course we bought some of that! A tad more shopping occurred in the little town. Every Italian dresses up around here, seriously 😀 The day ended with dinner out in Mira recommended by our darling Airbnb host. It did not disappoint. Love to all❤❤Read more

    Buanosera Venezia !

    October 7, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    We actually cheated and slept in a tiny bit today. Barry was awake a few times in the night by this poor lady who has some "issues" and is known to randomly scream at all times of the day and night as per the girl who checked us in 😳. She apparently lives next door to where we are staying 😬. We took the vaporetto #1 (waterbus) from Piazza San Marco all the way along the Grand Canal to the end at Piazzale Roma . Such a great way to see Venice from the water. We walked back through the streets and alleys and along the water back to the Rialto bridge area. After lunch we walked to the point at Punta Della Dogana. We sat in the sun with our feet dangling off the wall of the canal enjoying the view. It is away from most of the tourist area so it was a really nice area just to relax and people watch. We had dinner reservations for 7:30 pm so we decided to go get a drink at an English pub across from the restaurant . Of course Barry had a Guinness in Italy. Why not 😂. While eating dinner we started talking to the couple sitting next to us from Utah. It was their last night too and we were comparing travel stories. Turns out she too counts her steps and was wearing the identical Fitbit as mine and she is an ICU nurse in paediatrics ! We chatted for a while longer over tiramisu then wished them safe travels . We decided to go for a walk to see the Rialto bridge and Venice at night and to walk off our dinner. 😊 before heading back to the hotel to get organized to leave in the morning . This will be our last time to pack up our knapsacks this trip . We will walk along the canal all the way to the bus station to get our bus to the airport and board our plane for home. Happy to be heading home to see the girls and Charlie but not looking forward to the 9 hour flight 😢😊!Read more
