Tuesday, May 22 - from Venice to Florence
We left Venice in the morning, just after 8AM, but it took us until nearly 9AM to get to our bus. For those who wondered why we packed lightly, this is one of the reasons why. Walking from the center of the city to a canal stop for the bus transport to take us to the area where buses park carrying all your baggage, well that's a good workout. And the heavier you packed, the more tired you get moving out of Venice.
Once on the bus, we travelled for a while before stopping for our first break. Many of you may know that our son Matthew is something of a soda pop connoisseur. He has told us often how good Fanta Lemon is and how its very hard to find on our side of the Atlantic. This next image is in honor of him!
