... turns out, the incident, minor or otherwise didn't interfere with our enjoyment of the flight.
As the island of Venice gradually came in to view though our window, Roisin grabbed my arm and in an excited squeal said, ‘Look! There’s our ship. There’s our ship’ Sure enough sitting there 1,000ft below was the Royal Princess, Towering above a Celebrity Ship berthed adjacent to her. She certainly looked majestic from this height ...
... Tomorrow we are off the island and catching a train to Florence for 3 days.
Oh – if you want to get any English books in Venice, there’s a second hand (and new – but I think most of the English books are second hand) book store near the Hotel Malibran (in Corte del Milion). I swapped one for one!
We are now sitting in our hotel in Florence. A very short train trip from Mestre, Venice – 2 hours. But a long walk ...
As Logan is doing all of the driving, he said it was all good to drive straight across Italy and get to Venice (ready to explore in the morning). So today we hopped on the motorway and just drove. A few hours later and 25 Euros lighter after road tolls, we made it to Venice. It is roasting hot and it appears to be getting hotter.

... as there was no way we were going to be able to fit it all in. We did remark however that the little Italian ladies who were in the restaurant had one of these 45cm monsters all to themselves. We are both wondering where they put it because it is not obviously going around their hips!
Bed by 9:30, not sure what we are going to do tomorrow. This is one of the two sections of the trip that I haven't put much organisation into. We'll find something to do I'm sure - Venice is beautiful.
