Italy beckons -- the day that seemed a million years away is tomorrow -- wheee!
We'll fly to Vienna, Austria, spend the night at the NH Hotel (exit airport, cross street, go to room, crash), then catch an early a.m. flight to Venice (taxi to the Ambasciatori Palace hotel in Lido de Jesolo, go to room, change clothes, go to pool, start reading under shade tree, and zzzzzz and read and . . .).
|Venice -- I liked how the bird perched on the post and enjoyed the breezes.|
|The nearby island of Burano and my favorite ferry stop. We go early, get a coffee at an outdoor place by one of the canals and watch the island come alive.|
|I walked around after our coffee to take some pics. A bicycle always pulls me closer. Burano is laid-back, not as commercialized as Venice.|
|I can't resist these caloric bombs! Ohhhhh, pure bliss! Not too sweet with a hint of almond. *sighs*|
|The chocolate-creme torte hub surprised me with on my birthday last year! Very light, not too sweet *sighs again*|
|Hub's favorite . . . no canned mushrooms and fake cheese . . .|
|Tiles by the pool . . . this is more our speed.|
Happy Summer, Everyone!
