When have your memories occurred? Except for some rain on Sept. 19, the weather has been beautiful, sunny, and warm here in northeastern Italy.

Twice I've been to Venezia, and it is very wheelchair unfriendly (no one's fault, really, since the venetians weren't thinking of this many centuries ago when they built their city.) Therefore, no visit there with wife this trip.

Venezia is one of the most visited places in the world, and if you can do it, the trip is more than worth it. But do a little research about it ahead of time so you know what you are visiting and looking at.

Also be aware there are many other beautiful and interesting places in northeastern Italy, including the city of Trieste. On Saturday, the day we return, Barcolana begins (we will unfortunately miss it) and consists of week-long yacht races. Barche vele from all over come to this event. Tomorrow night we do dinner at Porto San Rocco, where a few of the SuperMaxi and Maxi yachts are berthed.
