“I think I’ll go to Venice for the day…”
It’s so outlandish to say that, and it’s not often that I CAN just go to Venice for the day, that I’m going to! I bought train tickets for tomorrow and will leave in the morning, wander around, have a nice meal or two at the good restaurants I know there, then come home in the evening.
The train trip is about two and a half hours each way and has none of the stress of driving a car somewhere. (And I’ve driven much farther/longer than that for the day!)
The Biennale di Venezia International Art Exhibition is on right now, so the place will be packed with people and art in every corner.
And I know a few people there, so I can stop and say “ciao”.
A little Venetian jaunt as my last hurrah before I leave next week. How perfect. (I love Venice.)
