How much?

Walked the lunch off and we are very close to St.Marks Square; so just a perfect position.



Many more gondolas knocking about than last time but it was December 31st, so I guess only the hardy ventured out for a punt.



We stayed on board the Michelangelo last time we were here and she said hello by sailing past us on day one! Quite cool today in the shade but glorious in the sunshine.

My first of what will be a fine collection of Venice knockers, I hope, for my chum Malcolm to admire. He does enjoy a good Italian knocker. Mary lost a really favourite earring; the butterfly fell off somewhere on transit in the plane. She secured the earrings in her glasses case but after lunch the wretched thing had simply vanished. Not a happy bunny.

imageSo not too sure if we are happy or sad! A good evening meal may mellow the situation and some forward planning for tomorrow may rekindle the excitement. And lashings of Chianti might help. But having paid 23 euros for two cappuccinos at the end of our walk, we may well need more than Chianti to dull the pain in the wallet! 😱

Thanks for reading M & M πŸ˜€πŸΉπŸŽ­

Malcolm and Mary

Malcolm worked for LWT. Mary worked for TRL. They live near Camberley in Surrey and did achieve their life long ambition to visit New Zealand. They have two daughters Laura and Hannah and two grandchildren Zach & Safi. Having done the big trip they then went to Canada, which was amazing. Scroll down it’s all here. They have visited Venice that they both so fell in love with in 2009 again. And recently returned to Lefkada for one week in glorious sunshine. Where next? Well, Canada is calling again in 2019; this time including Alaska. So stay tuned if you enjoy the ups and downs of travelling.

  1. One Cappuccino and two straws please…Ouch!!! Anyway glad to see you got there; I heard the French ATC were on strike on the radio this morning, and half expected to see your car outside your house!! Enjoy (cheaply!).

    1. Ha! Might try that! And that wasn’t even IN St. Marks Square. Close but at least one canal away! I guess we were lucky we weren’t going to France. Bit of flack over Germany but not too bad a flight. There was a point on Sunday when I thought we might still be in residence. Hey, ho, now where did I put that padlock for the wallet?

  2. If you are insisting on photographing venician knockers you may need to find a lady gondolier or is it a gondoliere?
