Sun out in Venice so up early walked over to academia area, again new sight every turn. Back for breakfast with Fabio....yes Maggie I met one and he was lovely. Hey I,m sure he even knocked on my door at 11pm but nick wouldn't,t let me answer.
Anyway back to reality, left bags at bnb went to murano, got taken for a PRIVATE tour of furnace area, think dissapointment in the end as Aussies with no money walking out empty handed. Good to see but over the glass in the end. Then off to burano, which is a small island township, houses painted bright colours, boats, small canals we did enjoy it. Back to pick up bags, Nick then hoping to pick up a walking stick from mask shop....damn to tall so won,t fit in bag.... He is such an easy target for a gimmick. Coffee n toasted foccasia $9 ...finally something decent n cheap in venice for quick lunch in corner bar. We then had our final tour of grand canal at sunset which was another wonderful sight of Venice. Would like to spend one week here but in cheaper accommodation. Got to train station 5.30bought ticket to padova leaving 5.32 ...eek .. Fast train . We landed at padova, didn't get time on train to search for accom so looked cross the road saw one there and in hotel room at 6.05. Then went for walk to largest piazza in Italy, hmmmm, kept singing "in the ghetto" as does feel like that here. Had dinner at recommended place, only opens after 7.30pm, no wonder, all the locals turn up then after work. Another seafood meal which was yum. 35euro n we were full of laughter, food n wine. Is an old city so seeing in the dark doesn't show much, people walking around, loads of push bike riders, cobbled streets everywhere n bikes, no cars.
Bolzano tomorrow??? Saw the mountains from Venice and our first glimpse of snow no wonder its cold.
