Arriving safely

Venice from the airplane

Wednesday’s post is a little late because our internal time clocks are all off — we arrived in Venice in the evening after two days of traveling filled with odd meals at strange times and intermittent naps.

Mama and I are choosing to focus on the wonderful angels we met along our trip, rather than the handful of petty assholes who made disabled travel more difficult. Despite massive planning and confirming, it did not all run as smoothly as we’d hoped. But we are so happy and grateful to be settled into our Venetian apartment.

Mama’s joy on the water taxi into Venice

Yesterday’s #OneGoodThing was arriving in beloved Venice with Mama!

Day 255 of 365. And Day 986 in a row (here’s the first 366 & the following 365)!

  1. Well done, and welcome back.
    Make a wish for me whilst you’re there please, this will be the first year in the last 13 that we’ll miss a break in Venice.

    • After such a rough travel experience, I’m not eager to go back home… or anywhere! We left our home Tuesday morning and didn’t arrive until Wednesday night. It felt endless and I’m so glad it’s done!


      • Amen! As if the air travel bit wasn’t arduous enough, the water taxi company lost our reservation. Then the tide was low in Venice and we couldn’t be delivered to our apartment water door. So we were deposited at Arsenale vaporetto stop with ALL of our luggage, which of course was too much. We were desperate and stuck. Thankfully our landlord met us there and then recruited some muscle to help for the not so short walk. It was a difficult end to a difficult series of travel mishaps. And that’s why I was so grateful to collapse in the apartment!
