Boy o boy, first international flight and wasn't expecting the pure and utter exhaustion. Arrived on the island at about 10AM and got on a vaporetto, a Venice "waterbus", and traveled down the Grand Canal. It was drizzling and only about 60 degrees but we thought the temperature was perfect after 24 hours of traveling that included some muggy, sweaty, "OMG does that guy NOT know he has major B.O." moments.

The remainder of the afternoon was spent exploring the stores in Piazza San Marco, or St Mark's Square for those who don't speak Italian.
