The next day we spent all day site-seeing around Florence. We saw a number of Cathedrals, castles, royal gardens, and street performers. All were very nice, that is except for the gardens, which cost us 10 Euro a piece to get in and they turned out being very weak to say the least. We ate dinner and turned in for the night to rest up for what turned into the longest day of traveling we have had so far, and the most expensive, for me (Josh).
We left Florence in the morning to head for Venice. Since I apparently ride the short bus, I left both of our passports in the safe at the hotel we stayed at in Florence. We didn't realize it until we were well on our way, by train, to Venice. Then had to get off at a stop in some random Italian city, buy tickets back to Florence, and then once we got back there, buy another ticket from Florence to Venice once again. SWEET! We were both in great moods after that. Luckily, the ticket guy in Florence decided to hit on Tara a wee bit and wanted to know if she had a boyfriend. He illustrated just the kind of perks that would come with dating a ticket man at a train station by giving her two free passes on the train to Venice. Apparently he assumed that she was traveling with one of her girlfriends. He then looked up to see me pacing back and forth, cussing at myself for leaving the passports and realized that she did have a boyfriend and he is possibly insane. But the free tickets helped a lot! Thanks Tara, again!
