Today we ventured to Venice (Venezia).

It’s a very historic place and I think that what makes it so fascinating. I am always being pressed for time and I regret not having a couple solid days to read about each location I visit. Instead, I make up the other 90% of the travelers; taking pictures and conquering the experience – it’s quite a shame.

Tonight is our last night in Jesolo. It’s always emotional for Granddad at these times. He has been coming here for so many years and to be known by person is a tremendously good feeling. I encountered this 2 nights ago when we entered the restaurant we dined at last year. The same head waiter was there, shook our hands and gave us free food all night. The next night he reserved for us the same table. It’s those little things that make the difference and Granddad seems to get that treatment everywhere we go.

Tomorrow we drive to the south of France to a place called Nice. I love Nice, it has a part in it called “the old town” and it’s amazing. Hole in the wall pubs everywhere and since I haven’t drank on this trip, I imagine tomorrow night will be my first to let the collar loose.
