Overnight, to Austria





The idea of overnight trains is so cool. You go to sleep speaking Italian, eating pasta, and wake up to German and schnitzel. We took an overnight train from Venice to Vienna, Austria. We also got really, really lucky and didn't have to share our compartment with anyone! Of course, the compartment was so small it was really hard to take pictures in (hence, the awkward pictures of Becca's legs...) but you get the idea...

Then there was Venice

I am SOOOOOO behind on this blog! Anyway, Venice was just as pretty as they say. It was hot. There are no cars. (Poor delivery-people.) The food was delicious. Maps are totally useless. We walked 30,000 steps in about 5 or 6 hours. There are LOTS of pigeons there. And what is a Ferrari store doing on a carless island, anyway?
