Weight Watchers nightmare

Not that I am doing WW but start with a light break ..cereal ..then to the ferry and a walk to All’Arco,s who invent Venices best Cicheti from the daily finds in the Rialto market ..ours consisted of Sicilian tuna tartar with mint ..Sardines with sliced pickled onions ..baby squid ..and finely sliced truffles with artichokes and a Spritz each ..€11 all in …small but delicate mortals of food …

After what seemed like hours of trudging willingly I may add through every ally and ginnell ..need to restore the soul with a slice of the best but very pricy pizza we have had as yet ..pricy because we were at the Rialto bridge when hunger struck ..Costa double Sir …yes it did ..and then we hit Groms …www.grom.it ….as it says in The Lonely Planet ..to lick the landscape of Italy and more ..Galati (more than ice cream) made from strawberry lemon but mostly chocolate ..J bought me a double I think just to get me back to the ferry as my legs definitely are worn to the knees

We are seriously in the red now ..readers of this blog  will know we are trying to run this trip off €40 per day …Venice has put payed to that ..but I will claw back as the days follow with NO campsites …wild camping again …
The only people who seem to be doing Venice without a care for the cost are the Chinese …here in droves…only ones to afford the cafés in St Marks Sq and the Gondolas ..even saw a couple (Chinese again) in their wedding attire on a canal in a gondola ..
We have been frugal as far as the ferries are concerned ..buying a weeks pass for €50 each we are already €186 up if we had taken the boats paying for each trip …

That’s about it for Venice ..we were going in again tomorrow but we need some serious R & R so off down the east coast ..wonder what Rimini is like at this time of the year …if we get there I will tell you ….
