Well we made it!

San Marco fro the Vaporetto

San Marco from the Vaporetto

As planned, we boarded the plan in San Francisco, the first leg of our trip to Venice Italy.  We started on American and transferred to Iberia in Los Angeles. I expected to lug the bags from the American terminal to the International Terminal but the bags were checked all the way to Venice.  We never saw them again until we arrived.  It all went as advertised.  I even slept on the way.  The transfer in Madrid was confusing but it all worked out and Madrid was our only encounter with passport inspection.  Italy doesn’t know or care that we are here. So far it has all been wonderful, learning the ropes in Venice.  This is just a placeholder for more posts later.  I  am attaching some photos just as placeholders.

    Congratulations on taking such a wonderful trip! My husband and I are going on a cruise to Belize and Honduras for our 25th wedding anniversary and I never thought I’d talk him into getting on another ship (he was in the Navy). We are looking forward to this! Hope you have a great time.

    Joan,
    We figured it was now or never. I’d love to go to Belize but my wife prefers more civilization. Enjoy.
