Venice Practice shot
So this is the first photo.. i hope it works.
Just cruising around Venice
Like a big pizza pie.. thats amorae!
Well we have arrived in Venice. First bus trip today.. left munich at 8am got to Venice around 6 [but we did have a few stops along the way] theres nothing to tell about Venice yet as we havent ventured into town but i will fill you in on the past couple of days.
So i left you in Santorini hey.. well the next and final island we visited was Ios. We arrived and were in walking distance to our accomodation. but you were in walking distance to anything main on this island. Our first afternoon was spent checking in chilling in our room and then we went for a walk along the beach. nothing special. We did walk into town and grab some dinner from the supermarket. Our second and final day was spent on the beach. many many days of greece were spent at the beach.
Now for the exciting stuff. We had a 12:40 ferry from the portso we headed there at 11 to grab a bite to eat hoping that would bring us to boarding time. Well 12:40 came and went.. so did 1:40.. then 2:40.. then 3:40
And another one for you
Grand Canal. Photo from Rialto Bridge
and woot woot the ferry arrived at around 5. :) YAY!!
So we boarded started our travels then found out the trip would be longer due to one of the engies being broken. None the less we arrived in Athens around 10 pm instead of the 4pm originally intended
So i think that brings us to Monday. we spent the day in Athens. First stop the Acropolis and Parthenon. Spent a bit of time here soaking up the atmosphere. very awe inspiring. beautiful. although there wqas quite a bit of scafolding. ah well.
Then we walked the streets for AGES... in search of this open air cinmea. long story short we saw a movie at 9 at the open air cinema then headed bak to the hostel grabbed our bags and got on the midnight bus to the airport.
Its around 1 am and we are sitting on the floor repacking our bags before we load them. Flight was at 4.20 am stop over in Prague thenon a tiny 20 seater plane to Munich.
Arrived in Munich at 8 am and got on the train then walked to our hostel. Little Nap then headed in Munich for a walk around
St Marks Square
Venice.. lots of pigeons and lots of tourists
the town. sorry this is getting short and sharp cos i have 6 minutes left!!
so walking arounf on 1 hours sleep in the past 28 hours is not fun...!!
We went into a church i bought my CAMERA! which is no where near as cool as my other one but it is a camera so i guess i have to be happy.
Went to bed at 8pm then woke at 7 this morning... We quickly packed as JEss.s alarm didnt go off. We practically ran the 10 minutes to the train station with our 15kg pack 20 in some cases but not me! and got on the train. We got to the bus and departed for the beginning of europe bussing. ahh my heart is racing i have 3 minutes so i will leave you with this. The scenery on the trip was AMAZING! Moutains and clouds and litte houses on the hills and castles on the hills. We stopped in a little town in Austria and it was so cute. classic housing surroudned by mountains.
Arrived in Venice this evening around 6 weve had dinner now informing you of everything. that brings you up to date
of love xxxx.
