... that they had started on.
Now this may not be the appropriate forum to discuss this incident and who was leading the way but all Battery Boy wants to say is look at Video Girl's navigational record. Battery Boy is convinced that it has something to do with a Southern Hemisphere girl being in the Northern Hemisphere. So from now on if Video Girl says to go right, Battery Boy turns left.
But it was impossible to get annoyed with ...
... the shuttle was full. After a short while another turned up and we got to our digs. It was a big day, on the road from 9 to 5. We unpacked and went for a walk along the waterfront. It I s a great location as we are on the opposite side of the La Guidecca Canal, so we look directly at Venice. We found a reasonable restaurant and watched the sun go down and the changing colours on San Marco's dome and the bell ...
... by the second wave whilst I was too slow to move!). Still photo taken and it was time to move on to the shops - Venice has great leather and bag shops, perfect for a spot of window-browsing.
We then made our way to San Marco Square where we did the obligatory feeding of the pigeons with the remains of our canalside picnic earlier. The architecture here was beautiful but the square itself was filled with tourists and pigeons. We decided this was ...
... nice views of the city from the top. You could really see how small the city is from up there. For the next few hours we got lost wandering the streets and seeing the less touristy parts of the city before heading back to the hostel to rest our feet. Tonight we are going to go out on a pub crawl to see what the night life is like. It seems like most people go back to the mainland or their cruise ships in the evening so the city is much ...
... Aptly named as the owners of the dogs walking along here never collect their dog’s poop, it is just left behind for you to navigate around! We met our next local guide ‘Lucia’ at the Piazza Di Croce. This was to become our meeting point for the time we were in Florence.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Palazzo Stern Venice
Many hotels in Italy claim to be a "palace" but this one of those hotel gems that can genuinely lay claim to the title. Vastly rennovated in the beginning of the twentieth century the interior of this hotel is a work of art with Murano glass candeliers, Roman-style mosaics, at least one gilded icon, columns, and beautiful wooden floors. The rooms are of a decent size - comfortable and relaxing. The staff are very friendly and the location is well within walking distance of the Gallerie dell'Accademia and other Venetian landmarks.
