Trip 14: 2015 ….. Day 12 – 15th = 22nd to 25th May ITALY … Venice

Still  being rewritten after this website was totally  hacked …..


Note: I would like  to share with  you  through  these few words, photographs and hyperlinked websites, a 3 Dimensional  experience as though you were  actually there with  us. Click on any photograph and it should enlarge to  different size ….. at least half screen or size full screen. It will be clearer in detail than the photo on the post. It will be as if you were  really there looking at the actual  scene. You are an arm chair traveller with us.

If you would also like  to see the post in a larger or smaller size, I suggest you follow this procedure: If you right-handed, with your left hand, press  down continuously  on the Control Function Key  with your left hand and with your right hand, move  the   little  cursor wheel either forwards or backwards to make the text in the post larger or smaller.


We went down into the Mediterranean Sea, past the Greek Islands and up to Venice over the May period. We were looking at the Byzantine Empire. We were on a small ship of 350 people only, so the ship can go into small ports that larger ships couldn’t enter.

When we got to Venice, we all disembarked and were put up in the Hilton Hotel and spent two days looking around Venice as part of the tour. Then we all flew home. However Harriet and I stayed an extra two nights in Venice. We stayed in the luxurious Hotel Danieli  overlooking the Grand Canal. Seeing it was a life time thing, we indulged ourselves.
