It's Amore!!

The campsite we stayed at on the mainland in Venice had another Top Deck crew visiting at the same time, so there was bound to be a wild toga party. I danced my ass off on a couple of energy drinks, and hit the sack at about 1.30am.

Lots of others did the same thing, whether it be because of sickness or hangovers.Had a pretty quiet afternoon, eating iceblocks to try and make my throat feel better, and recharging my appliances.The next morning was another early packing morning as we were off to...
