The long drive to Italy

We managed to get on the road by 10 a.m. and thirty minutes later we were sitting in the longest traffic jam ever, so we decided to get off the autobann and bypass the jam……so, we spent the next thirty minutes in another jam. Finally, we were on the road again….which is a story in itself. The GPS told us to go one way, and Donda wanted to go another, so after we were hopelessly lost, Donda asked Brenna and me to read the map. Well the only map we had was 1/100000 scale and there were no roads or towns listed!!! Finally, we agreed to listen to “G” again, and we made it to the Venice Port. This was my first trip in an auto ferry, and it was pretty cool. We are staying on Lido Island.
The hotel is another story. While our room is clean (thank goodness), we had no air-conditioning. When we asked to have it hooked up, we were told that we had to pay a E20 deposit in case we break the remote control. We have to unhook lamps to have outlets to plug our chargers into. This hotel gets two stars!
