I'm so glad I decided to subscribe, Kathy! The only drawback is how jealous I am that you're there and I'm not. But it's great, and an honor, to travel along with you vicariously.

My favorite memory of Venice, over 20 years ago now, is sitting on top of a canal-side stone wall outside my pension, reading a book and enjoying the gondoliers as the oared past and flirted with me. :)

This has got to be one of the best pieces that you have ever written. You spoke from your heart of the wonderful memories that will forever stay with you. I spent only 2 days in Venice 15 years ago and I fell in love with that beautiful city. You will see Venice again, someday soon. Ah, Italia, it is all good.

I love the last sentence of your first paragraph, Kath! I have a hard time with the "if it's Tuesday, it must be Venice" kind of travel, but I know that sometimes a day-and-a-half is better than nothing.
I agree with Josie that this is a great piece -Arthur Frommer & Rick Steves had better watch out for an up-and-coming travel writer! (If I help write or edit, can I come with you next time? We can write it off of our profits, right?)
