...Boat Friday....

Today Ginnie and I will travel to Venice, Italy. I think it might be a good idea to take a boat as well.....

Haha- yes, you need some boats! I admire your sign and your handwriting! A wonderful journey to you both! You will be enthusiast!
Picturit: Thank you, Philine, we said HELLO from you to Venice for I know that you really enjoy this city and I now know why.
Astrid

Well what a nice thing to do - bon voyage to you both!
Picturit: Thank you,Chris. We really enjoy it already, 6 more days to go. We like to see some of the islands around Venice as well, so the boat comes in handy.
Astrid.
Have a great trip!
Picturit: Thank you, we are enjoying ourselves, what a city to be.
Astrid
Have a great time in a wonderful city Astrid. Be wary of the gondolas, I have always been put off by the price, and some of the gondoliers attitudes.
Picturit: Thank you,Chad. I already was in a fight with two young men, who grabbed our bags and offered them to take to our hotel....just over one bridge...and I told them NO.... on the top of the bridge I told them I wanted the suitcases back....they wanted 5 euro.....for one minute?????? I told them if they wanted to be nice that would not cost money....I gave them one euro and wanted two....I said, I don't earn one euro in one minute....so you also not.... Italian men ......ha... a lesson learned. No gondola for me, 80 euro daylight and 100 at night.... but we do enjoy ourselves, so much to see and 6 more days to go.

Enjoy the spaghetti, Astrid.mm
Picturit: We will, we love spaghetti carbonara...... we had ravioli today
Astrid.
I think you should get Ginnie to take a photo of you captaining a gondola in Venice. That would make a good Boat Friday too. Have a wonderful adventure!
Picturit: That will cost a fortune but it would be a great picture. I doubt that they even let a woman handle the gondola it is a mans world..
Astrid.
Have great time Astrid, I've been to Verona, a lovely place to visit.
Picturit: We will be there on next Friday for 4 days. Venice is wonderful and we just take our time.
Thank you Brian.

Cruising the highways.
Picturit: Yes indeed and the boat gets in handy, we use it several times a day. wink
Astrid.
a great view and certainly appropriate as you are off! have a great time ahead, you two.
Picturit: Thank you, Ayush, we enjoy every minute, we are pinching ourselves. We are so lucky.
Astrid.
it's a great place to take a boat ride Astrid... but driving it yourself isn't....
you two have a ball in Venice... i wish that we could have spent a week there instead of just two days...

Make sure that you take a tour of the Murano Glass Foundries....petersmile
Picturit: We went to Murano two days ago and we got a privat tour in the back of the shop where we bought some gifts. That was a great experience. Today we go to Torcello and Burano, the two islands far away from Venice. We are lucky to have great weather as well.
Thank you, Peter.
Astrid
Great photo, Astrid, and a lovely signature.

From what I saw on FB, I'm sure you've been enjoying the adventure. smile Have a great time!
Picturit: Thank you, Petra, we do enjoy ourselves. The weather is just amazing and we see so many beautiful things, what an experience.
Astrid.
Or get one there and return to the Netherlands in it smile
Picturit: Oh that might be a great idea.....

It could be handy; there's a loy of water in the streets smile
Picturit: We noticed.... but we were thankful they had boats to move us around the city.... and the many islands. We totally enjoyed the stay in Venice and now Verona.
Back tomorrow.
Astrid
Well I'm glad to see that you have your own truck to haul that boat! Can't wait to see all the Venice pics!
Picturit: We used it a lot wink... we took a card for public transportation (read: boats) for 7 days, that was fun, I like boat-rides.
I have to admit that I might have some pictures you don't expect from Venice, but Ginnie will make up for that. Of course I will have some landmarks too. Venice is too beautiful not to show the pictures from. Over the weekend we watched 'The Tourist' with Johnnie Depp and Angelina Jolie in Venice, that was great to see again.
