Just a few of my (Bob's) notes about some themes and overall thoughts about this trip.
The person who showed us our Airbnb in Venice, Orial, asked me about what I thought about the people in my first visit to Italy, and to Europe. I tried to explain it to him, but I had a hard time doing it then, and I'm kind of having a hard time writing it too. I also have to disclaim/qualify that I fully understand that I have had a small glimpse of ...
... My aim is to find it.
What I DIDN'T love about Italy - that I missed from America:
Eggs. I missed eggs for breakfast so much. I cannot subsist on a little pastry or toast with jam or even a piece of cheese or ham. I need my morning eggs.

I can always buy while I'm there.
Bob keeps reminding me that we're not leaving civilization. Anything I didn't pack that I end up really needing? I can buy.
T-Minus 1 day and 12 hours! :)
Our first day on the water after leaving the marina was beautiful. We had flat seas and very little wind.
The temperature was a pleasant 70 degrees. We stayed on the flying bridge all day and enjoyed the scenery of ships and shoreline passing us by.
This was a great first day on the water and Dennis was able to get to know the way the boat handles without any ...
