Only just found this - Addie, I am so sorry for your loss and I'm thinking of you.

Off to Venice tomorrow. We'll spend two days in Venice, then board a small ship (460' long holding 265 passengers) and cruise the Adriatic along Croatia as far as Montenegro. We have land excursions every day. Then back to Venice for another two days and then home.

I have mixed feelings about traveling this time of year, as it's one of the best times of the year here. Cooler, drier weather, and the tourists have mostly gone home. It's a lot safer riding, as the locals are accustomed to bikes and pedestrians on two lane roads and are far more courteous than summertime traffic.

But, the weather at our destination will be as good as it gets, too. So as The Great One said:

Ahhh, Venice...one of my favorite romantic spots in the world!

Souschef and I started our two week wedding cruise there on a small cruise ship and cruised the Adriatic sea with several ports of call till we were married on the island of Santorini Greece several days later in 2007.

I know you'll have a wonderful time TS!!

The KN (a/k/a my Dad) has pushed me too far this time. I am packing my stuff and heading back to Ontario. Hopefully, I can hit the road by Wednesday and be HOME by Friday night.
