At the public library in Verona (Italy).

The cruise was excellent all-in-all and on the 20th we rented a car in Milano, driving eastwards towards Venezia (Venice). For the first time on our trip the weather was bad, so we had to pause more frequently than planned.

Anyway, we found an excellent bed&breakfast place in the hills near Verona, so we’ll be staying there for at least 3 days, using it as a base to make day trips to Verona, Venezia (tomorrow), and perhaps Padova to the South.

More anon…
