We knew before setting off to our next campsite that there was no internet provision. Somewhat unusual in this day and age, and for us it has become such a useful tool both for researching our 'go as we please' itinerary and staying in touch with friends and family, be it via Skype, email or this blog.

After about an hour of trying we figured we’d been the victims of an internet scam and had no place to stay in Venice.
