Going to Venice
By martin on Oct 01, 2005
It looks like I will be going to Venice for a week in November
I talked with my girlfriend on the phone, i.e. Skype, for a couple of hours yesterday and we both agreed that waiting three months until we meet again is a very long time. So we are going to get together for a week in Venice (that is Italy for you geographically challenged people in the audience) to break up the long time apart in half.
Why Venice? Two reasons:
- There are direct flights between Rio and Venice, and Copenhagen and Venice
- It is a very romantic place
Now we can spend time looging for a nice little hotel, sights to see and places to go. I've read some of Donna Leon 's books about commissario Guido Brunetti, which are set in Venice. It'll be fun to visit the places she writes about in the books.
