Where I stayed
Hotel Mondial Venice
Back on the bus and off we head to Italy. I thought this place was beautiful yesterday. This morning is even better. With low cloud it is absolutely gorgeous. So romantic. Goodbye Austria.
The scenery here is Northern Italy reminds me of the movie A Walk in the Clouds, with Keanu Reeves, but Italy is so the Godfather... Hehe... The sun is just coming up through and over the mountains and I am reminded of the glory of God on such a beautiful morning. The wonders of a world a never knew, that has taken me until now to experience. And what an experience is has been so far and what I am sure it will continue to be.
I have my ipod on shuffle and I am sitting here on the bus listening to Bon Jovi sing "Welcome to where ever you are, this is your life, you've made it this far
So many grapes, vineyards, wineries.
Here we are about to arrive in Venice. How cools is it this, I am in Italy and going to Venice and then also on a gondola tonight!!!
Wow what an amazing day. We caught a ferry across to the main island of Venice, with the super cute drivers... Upon arrival we went straight to our restaurant for lunch, which was part of an optional excursion that I had elected to do. This included bread, lasagna (seafood for everyone else), salad, veal with tomatoes and 3 bottles of white wine for me. It seems that everyone else here who didn't want their wine gave it to me to drink. Have I also mentioned how hot it is here today.
I have had such a wonderful day. I still find it hard to believe that I spent the day here in Venice. This is so awesome. The hotel is so so, but I will sleep that is for sure.
You know you love me
