Hello!

It's been a few weeks, but I finally have a noteworthy blog post! This past week, I had the pleasure of visiting the city of Venice, and Italy in general. My I flew out of Gatwick airport (about 45 minutes away from me in London) at 8:30 a.m. last Thursday morning and arrived in Venice at 11 a.m. Venice time. While in flight, I could look out my window and see the Italian alps for a good 40 minutes of my ride. The whole time while I was looking down ...

... to our stop at Arsenale. Our host Guy met us there and it was raining quite heavily. He had a small umbrella for himself, and bought two small umbrellas for us from a street vendor (street vendors selling umbrellas have been in a lot of the places we have visited). He walked us to the apartment, which was right by a canal (the water was lapping at the outside wall of the building, out the lounge room windows!). The building used to be a ...

... like them) these were just unbelievable moving paintings that made the stations feel that much more real. It was great. Even though I wasn't doing anything I had planned, I felt like I was experience Venice the way it was meant to be.

After a short rest at my hostel, I went out to try and find another place to eat dinner. I wasn't
particularly hungry, so I decided to just continue exploring and looking at menus until I found the ...

Venice was an interesting experience for us. We heard so many stories, had such high expectations, that maybe we doomed ourselves to being disappointed. Or maybe Ryan and I prefer the unmapped adventures, and the roads less traveled.

We did, however, fall in love with Venice in the early morning and late at night (breathtaking with floodlights, few tourists, and vivacious young locals), so we adopted somewhat of a ...

    We chose this B&B because of its proximity to the Fondamenta Nuove dock. We had planned to arrive in Venice on the day of the Regatta Storica, and knew from past experience that the Grand Canal would be inaccessible. The Alilaguna ferry from the airport stops at Fondamenta Nuove. The B&B is located on a side street, just a short walk from the dock. Also, vaporetti to the islands of San Michele, Murano & Burano run frequently. We were also able to catch a vaporetto to the train station when we departed.

    Anna & Mario are very pleasant hosts... helpful when needed, otherwise unobtrusive. The room that they let is quite comfortable and fairly quiet, except for the sound of the vaporetti coming in & out. But that's just part of the charm of Venice. The bathroom is nice, with a large shower & plenty of hot water. Breakfast is served continental style, with juice, coffee, fruit, yogurt, and plenty of rolls & pastries.

    The walk to Piazza San Marco is a little tricky, but after the first day, we had no problem... about a 20-minute walk. And, if you don't feel like walking, you can always catch a vaporetto.

    The only problem we had with this place was that a €100 deposit was required, and it had to be sent by wire transfer. Our bank provided the service for a $30 foreign transaction fee, but Mario's bank charged a fee also, which was subtracted from the amount of our deposit. We weren't too happy about this, but Mario agreed to eat the fee on his end, so all was good. Perhaps this is only a problem with US banks, but it was an added difficulty.

    Our overall impression, however, was positive. We had a very pleasant stay, and would highly recommend the B&B Alle Fondamente Nuove.
