Italy Trip – Day 1

For all those wondering, Grandma and I returned from our Italy trip late last night. Overall, it was AMAZING, but definitely exhausting. With over 2,000 miles traveled and 741 photos taken in 6 days/5 nights, we are satisfied that we saw everything there was to see in Italy. Our driver and tour guide were the best you could ask for.

Below is a snapshot of the events from Day 1. We got on our bus at about 0530 and didn’t arrive to our hotel in Venice until around 2300 (11pm). It was a brand new bus so it was very nice.

We made a two hour dinner stop at Lake Garda in Italy.  Very pretty place.

First taste of real Italian gelato. Don’t be fooled by Grandma’s expression, she likes gelato.

 Day 1 was long, but we made it to Venice! More pictures to come over the next few days.
