The adventure continues........
17 October 2014 | Vienna, Italy
We made it to Italy yesterday. The 200+ mph trains are a hoot! THey don't go that fast while traveling through the Alps, but on flat land, WEEEEEEEEEE!. We saw some local sites yesterday and more is planned for today. Thank goodness most Europeans speak enough English to help us get to where we need or want to go....In Austria and Germany, I could speak German well enough to get by, But in Italy, all I know how to do is wavy my hands and yell....LOL! The Grand Canal is quite a site. We took the water taxi from the train station to the motel. Public transit is great here. For 40 Uros ( about $55.00) you can get a 3 day travel pass that work on the water and land taxi system. Not a bad deal.......TTFN
