Woops .. And the police turned us away …


We left Verona ,John diving deep into those Yorkshire pockets and paying (I might add without tears) for the Toll road to Venice saving us 100klm of torturous narrow hilly roads … And after two hours of uneventful scenic driving with the Dolomites on our left we had smiles as the toll only came to €8.60 … Magic

Our chooses route was around Venice on the Treiste road and down the backside of the Lagoon to the Venetian lido .. Woops That stupid sat nav .. Sent us across the causeway into Venice itself until a lady copper shook her finger saying NO … John then did an Italian U turn .. Only one lot of honking from the locals .. Then back to the road we were supposed to be on … Another hour with solid traffic ( we think it was May Day holiday and some motor cyclists trying to get to hospital quickly .. What dreadful drivers .. Only to find the campsite of choice didn’t have a laundry and was over priced so went another 100 yard down the road and found another which had every thing we wanted including curtesy bus to the ferry and we got OAP discount which made it cheaper than the other one .. Super.. Set up now ready for our Venetian Adventure
