Flat roads in Italy near Cernignano

I felt the excitement growing in me as I neared Venice.

Venice. Am I really going to be in Venice?

That’s where the streets are made of water, right?

I’ve never been so excited about a city in my whole life.

Welcome to Venice (Venezia), Italy

I arrived late, at around 6pm. I had made the mistake of only emailing one potential CouchSurfing.org host. His email told me that his house was full. I decided to leave the Venice sightseeing till tomorrow, and search for a place to sleep. It was great weather, and promised to be a fair night.

I hope my suggestion to visit Venice didn't disappoint. It may not be as interesting without a significant OTHER along. I visited with my wife, and we had a tremendous, romantic getaway. Bon Giorno!

I've just been catching up on all the blog and photos. It must be really great to be so far through Europe.
