    Farewell Florence

    January 8, 2017 in Italy

    This morning we packed up once again and caught the train to Venice. We boarded at 11.30 and arrived in Venice about 2pm. The first part of the trip was in tunnels which was causing havoc with the ears. I think Dave and I are showing our age as we enjoyed the peacefulness of first class on thr other train journey last week . We were around a couple of families which means constant chatter, luckily they left on the next stop. The scenery wasn't much today, bare fields and colourful houses. Venice was very chilly but the sun was shining. Our apartment is very very nice and spacious. By the time our host finished welcoming us it was time to do some shopping. Always an interesting chore trying to find things in European shops and then google translate whilst dodging everyone. When we get home to Australia a big juicy steak will be on the menu along with a schnitty parma. Chicken on the menu tonight again. We are just having a relaxing evening as we are all trying to get over coughs and colds. Decided to try our €42 (Euro/$60) bottle of Tuscan Chanti red wine tonight.

    Snowflakes and canals

    January 10, 2017 in Italy

    I went out early this morning to take some photos. I was surprised how busy it was with workers around the city. We had a friendly cat near our apartment then later we saw the same cat inside a bookstore near us, so of course the kids had to go in and give it a pat. Today we had no plans except to wander the streets. We went to the fish markets- always interesting looking at all the different seafoods. It is also fresh fruit & vegetable markets and specialty food shops. We stumble across a butcher shop that only sold horse meat. (No Annette I wasn't that hungry). Kellie wasn't impressed. It was cold today, as we were walking we had light snowflakes falling on us. It was time for a coffee to warm up, after we come out the sun was shining. It is amazing how much warmer you feel with the sun out. It didn't last long though. The pigeons in Italy are extremely friendly. Here in Venice you are nearly tripping over them. Then they fly straight at you and you have to duck out of their way. We saw some walk into a chocolate shop. After a bit more of wander we headed to a restaurant that our host recommended. When we found the restaurant the menu was mainly seafood that we don't eat and a little pricey. So a bit more walking until we found something else. We all had pasta again as we leave Italy tomorrow. We walked a bit more and got some supplies for tonight and tomorrow. It was only 3.30pm but the night air had come in. It is warmer at 7am than 3pm. As our apartment is very central we rested for a 1/2hr before heading out to look for the sun setting. We didn't find it, perhaps it was too overcast today. We strayed into a very expensive street. Had fun gasping at the prices. On our stroll back we found a bakery and a fruit & veg shop right around the corner of our apartment. I wished we found that on our first night. We are now tucked up in our apartment drinking our other expensive bottle of wine, so we don't have to cart it around any further. Well, good excuse to drink it.

    Venice

    July 3 in Italy

    Went to a small glass blowing factory, on Murano Island and I drooled over some of the items made, prices to make your eyes water. Visited the (Peggy) Guggenheim art museum, very interesting story on how it evolved. Wandered through the narrow streets in pleasant temperatures. Had a Gondola ride on the canals, all touristy but with doing. Ended the night with a lovely meal in one of the back streets, trying to keep away from the crowded ‘eatery places’, works well. Just love all the wonderful old buildings.Read more

    Italy

    July 2 in Italy

    Long flight from Hong Kong to Milan. Caught train in to Central station to meet with John then back to his hotel for a quick shower and a catch up with the girls before we all boarded a train to Venice. Four bedrooms, four bathrooms (YAY) air bnb close to Rialto bridge. Settled in then went walking, lovely lunch and of course the inevitable shopping for the girls. (Capping that!!). Early night, ready to hit the road or canals this morning.Read more

    Into Venice

    December 20, 2016 in Italy

    A short and simple bus ride from Treviso got us into Venice, and we walked from the port to our hotel. Whilst the room is lovely, they clearly picked a motif and ran with it...even the walls are covered in material. A stone's throw from San Marco and Rialto, we are off to explore the Venetian night...
