Wow! I can't believe it, but two weeks from today I will be on my way to Venice to continue my Brunetti adventures!
I made a couple of earlier blog posts about my fascination with the Donna Leon novels featuring Commissario Guido Brunetti.
I have actually become a Brunetti fanatic - I have read all 20 books plus the book by Dr. Toni Sepeda (Brunetti's Venice), which takes the reader on a series of 12 walks thru Venice, walking in Brunetti's footsteps thru the novels.
My intention is to try to do all 12 walks while I am in Venice. I have taken the book apart and marked it up to more easily find the locations.
This may seem like a strange thing to do, but when you are a fanatic, you do strange things.
We even have a long, long thread on Slow Travel Talk just about Commissario Brunetti - it has almost 15,000 views, so you can see that I am not the only fan of Brunetti.
So, stay tuned - maybe I will even run into Donna Leon on one of my Brunetti Walks!
