Day 40 : Tuesday 15 October 2019 : Venice and to the airport

Last day. Decided not to waste it and got online to book some tickets for Doges Palace (€52). Really interesting place. Bought some list minute souvenirs including a gorgeous charm for Kirsten (€80). Jodie had to try one last piece of pizza from Venice.

Its scary but yet so cool and interesting, the rain's come in and as a result, San Marco's square is under water and its lapping at many of the streets. You can clearly see the issue they face as there hasn't been that much rain.

Okay, we’ve cut it a little fine, but we’re ok, starting to find our way around. Get changed, pick up our bags and off we head off. So sad.

We get to the terminal and get bus tickets (€32) and head to the airport. We’re early! By the time we get to the checkout queue when it opens there’s a line but its just not moving. We notice that the flight board says the flight is delated, so we’ll miss our connection. We arrived at the airport around 2.30pm and we sat there until 7.30pm

Found the fish markets
that night. After much much much debate, anger, tears and confusion, we got a flight out to Dohar and will be put up for 24 hours. At least we may be. No one is really sure but we can’t sit around the airport any longer.

There was us an another Australian couple that ended up arguing and were last to be processed because they couldn’t find a reasonable solution. Anyway, off we go.

Walked 9.5kms or 15000 steps and floors. CC €242 Cash €30
