Hi Cuties, here is the next installment of our Italian holiday! Love Chris

1. Modena Monastery where the monks make Balsamic vinegar to die for!!!!
2. Some beer with my maiden name on it - at Sassuolo - the supermarkets had 3 aisles of alcohol!!!
3. Ancient bridge at Pavullo - we actually drove over it in David's 4WD
4. Trev and I having a magnificent luncheon at a little roadside restaurant in Vaglio (in the hills)
5. Inside the Roccapelago church museum where they found mummies and these were their clothes. I won't put up the pictures of them as it may offend some cultures.
6. View from museum window - this village has the oldest living Italians in the world! They believe it's the climate.
7. View from the back of the church looking over to the mountains. We were quite high up!!
8. Cherry House in Polinago where we stayed with Win and David our hosts.
9. Arriving in Venice!
10. The obligatory Gondola ride!
11. Pair of hands as part of the Bianale - looks fab!
12. Doges palace St. Mark's square.
13. Rialto bridge lit up at night
14. Our hotel is the red one - right next to the bridge hence it's called the Rialto hotel.
15. " The most beautiful bookshop in the world" - Venice

I'll do some more later. Love Chris

What a fun way to wake up this morning! I especially loved the gondola ride. It must have been fascinating seeing the ancient clothes of the mummies too. Thanks for sharing your trip. I'm enjoying it.

Thanks Marian, I’ve still got stacks to go through - but what with all the babysitting duty, and renovations going on etc. I’ve been a bit slack in cataloguing them!!! 💕 Chris
