    Venice

    October 3, 2017 in Italy

    Leisurely start to the day (not sure how I am going to go back to 5.15am starts when I get back to Australia - positively uncivilised!), and then we started an epic day of leisurely meandering through the streets of Venice. Love love love!

    We didn't go into anything or line up for anything and just enjoyed a day of looking at the sights of Venice from the outside. Fabulous bridges, Venezian-style traffic jams, heard opera being sung on a gondola, marvelled at why the gondoliers thought being grumpy and disinterested in what they were doing was good for business etc.

    We looked in on some amazing art shops, and got a bit of inspiration for a few things we might try out when we get home. Kate has been collecting the entry and bus tickets throughout our journey to "do something" with them when we get home. We were inspired by some great papier mache works in one gallery today so spent this evening researching some options to give it a go when we get home. It has been four weeks since we have watched a TV (given we can't understand anything, we have gotten used to just not turning them on even when we have had them) which has been great for playing games and chatting about stuff. Each accommodation generally has a selection of games - tonight Finn and I played backgammon which used to be one of my favourite board games when I was at uni and living with my uncle who was a board game fiend.

    We got back to our accommodation around 4pm due to the urgent need to find a loo and a distinct lack of public facilities in Venice. So, had a sleep, read some book, dinner last night was so yummy Craig made the same again. All up, a perfect day!

    The Venice 'main drag'

    July 15, 2015 in Italy

    Today was the day when we visited the typical tourist sites. We walked down to St. Mark's Square via the famous Rialto bridge (sadly disfigured by a huge advertising poster and lots of hoardings), then we took the lift to the top of the Campanile (bell tower) for some fabulous views out over the city and lagoon.

    We saw the exterior of the basilica (also partly under renovation - the scaffolding curse continues to bite) but between the silly dress rules and the need to queue for an hour in the blistering heat to go inside we skipped that aspect!

    Lastly we visited the Doge's Palace and crossed the Bridge of Sighs to the old prison. It was really interesting learning about the history and origins of Venice.

    By the end of all this we were pretty tired ao we dragged ourselves back to the hotel and our air conditioned room to refresh ourselves with a chilled bottle of Prosecco!
