Rock up to Venice on a Sat night -not a good idea!

Well today we hopped on another train which was packed to the brim yet again and headed to Venice (actually Venezia). The weather was still not too good and was raining a bit. It was a saturday night and we just rocked up without any accomodation - definatly not the best idea to do in Venice, and anyone who's reading this and planning to go... dont do it - nothing's ever available unless you want to spend like 150 Euro + per night. We ended up checking into this place just outside of venice in "Maghera" (i think) as it was alot cheaper and only 20 minutes from the central bus stop of venice anyhow. So we walked around a bit with our backpacks as we were both kinda excited that 'were in venice!!!', before it was getting a tad and we were both soaked, so we hopped on the number 9 bus to our stop outside where we're staying. Wasn't long before we arrived, checked in and the guy at the reception of the place was a crackup..
Well, the rain stopped, however unfortunatly the hail started, as well as the lightning and thunder... Was a huge storm - first big one for our trip... Well - a perfect night to relax. So there was this family pizzeria next door to us, so we headed down to that and ate a huge magherita... mmm - and Gladiator came on tv... in italian! haha which i guess its how its supposed to be as its based in Italy :o) So i watched that while just chilling in the pizza house and back in our apartment room. and... off to bed to get some sleep for a big next day to see venice properly...
Night night all :o)
