Arrival in Venice, Italy

  Late afternoon arrival in Venice, Italy


Venice is like none other . The water, the boats, the old, old buildings , the history, the beauty- -WOW. When I arrived ( after checking into my hotel) the 1st thing I did was get on a vaporetto ( basically a water taxi that holds a lot of people) and ride down the Grand Canal – twice. The 1st time to take photographs and the 2nd time to read my self guided cruise that tells me about some of the key buildings and a little of their history. I was even lucky enough that I was still on it at sunset = it was beautiful to see the city lite up with the sun setting behind it. Then my next goal was pasta – when in Italy what else? It was wonderful also. And now some sleep and hopefully tomorrow I’ll have my land legs back. After 7 hours on the train and about 2 hours on the vaporetto, I sorta feel like I’m still moving……. 🙂 Looking forward to exploring tomorrow…..
Arrivederci !
