2006 Trip - Italy - Venice to Lake Como

Saturday 5-20-06

Horrors! Another moving day! I have come to dread these! I can certainly understand the Slow Travel philosophy of being based in one or two locations and day-tripping from there. Next time . . .

We bit the bullet and ordered a water taxi pickup - It came right up to the canal window at our B and B - they opened the window and out we went with our luggage. This was the first time I have ever gone out a window to catch a taxi!

It was about 15 minutes to the train station. Stood in line for the train tickets this time because we wanted the train that didn't require a change. Also bought the one for 3 days from now, so that is done.

It's always fun to watch people coming and going thru that little water taxi window at the Orseolo!

They had two feet of water inside the B&B on the day of that big Dec. 1 flood. By the time I arrived on Dec. 4, it was all cleaned up and back to normal.

Wow! That is amazing, Annie. I guess they are used to flooding from time to time and know what to do to get things back to normal again.

Marcia:

I have never gone through a window to get on a boat, will have to check that out next trip to Venice. Great picture.

That must have been fun going through their special window. Life in Venice is so unique. I hate packing day also! wonderful photos!
