... Alvise, (yes, again - but no 1L of prosecco this time). Our next adventure awaited us - to Burano Island! We hopped on the #12 to Burano. We had considered going to Murano as well but we didn't want to wear ourselves out -- and Murano is mainly Venice with glass blowing demonstrations. I had heard Burano offered a more unique place to visit.
The vaporetto was empty when we hopped on Fondamente Nove but it filled up fast at Murano. ...

Last train had seats facing each other with a table between which didn't leave any leg room. Had people sitting directly in front of us speaking some language..not French or Italian. By the time we got to Venice it was dark and it ...
... Rhys and I set off, and some how ended up across the other side of the island. We decided we were a lost cause and to make our way back to the apartment. As we rounded the corner of one of the many squares in Venice, Rhys shouts "that's it! " we had located the restaurant and sat down for a drink to see if Tony and Sean would arrive by the agreed time.
