Trip Report Hanabillies head to the Serenissima and beyond

Jump to last reply

Finally it's here! Months of planning and years in anticipating...the day is here! Right now we're in London, and will be flying off and landing in Venice around 1:00 today!

When I say I have dreamed of Venice, I don't mean i saw a travel poster and sighed, thinking "someday I'd love to go to Venice..." No. I mean in my sleep, deep into REM, recurring dreams of an enchanted place where the streets are water, and people are transported through those streets, eye-level to fabulous buildings, not at water's edge, but right in the water. It never occurred to me that this was an actual place, thinking rather it was someplace i had created to escape to in my dreams, where I felt connected to all of time, right there in those streets of water. It wasn't until oh, maybe 15 years ago when I described those dreams to a friend and she immediately exclaimed, "Venice!' did I realize i dreamed of place that actually existed. Naturally, over the years my obsession grew, knowing I would be there one day (and wondering, had i been there before?)

So, when I say that day is here, you can't imagine the butterflies.

So, the trip coming up: We'll be six nights in Venice, four in Bologna, followed by a week at an agriturismo in Umbria. Ii will try to keep my report short enough to be readable in one lifetime, but please forgive me if I wax on a little. I owe heaps of gratitude to many here who have contributed to my planning (and stoked the dream machine a little too, i dare say.) It was Sr. Franco who suggested the Ca Sagredo, and when I noted that it was beyond our budget, Jamierin advised that I check Luxury Link and lo! We're in at about half price - still a splurge for us, but doable. Thanks also to Peter, ellenem, john123, and all the fabulous trip reports. The information adds so much to the planning,and I hope i can pipe in a little that will help the next Venice newbie.

I'll be back.
