Comments on: Venice, Italy – Part One http://www.flashpackingwife.com/venice-italy-part-one/ Just another WordPress weblog Sun, 24 Oct 2010 14:33:22 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.9.2 By: Lindsie http://www.flashpackingwife.com/venice-italy-part-one/#comment-1025 Sat, 03 Jan 2009 23:07:16 +0000 http://www.flashpackingwife.com/venice-italy-part-one/#comment-1025 Lil’ Boozie,

My birthday is also in October and I contemplated Oktoberfest….until I found out that it’s actually in September! Go figure! Some years it does stretch into the first couple of days in October though. 2009 dates are Sept. 19 – Oct. 4. If you go – please have a beer for me! 😉

I’ve always wanted to go and my birthday happens to be in October.. so.. OKTOBERFEST, woohoo!! That’s it – it’s settled.. I’m making it happen this year.

Happy Belated Birthday & New Year!

We found the cover charge pretty common in most of the places we visited in Italy. Whenever there wasn’t one it felt like a bonus, which is silly, but true.

We found it both wonderful and horribly frustrating, mostly because how expensive it is. The cover charge isn’t Italy-wide, it’s pretty much only Venice. And they charge for all sorts of other things too. But, being in Venice – I mean, VENICE, is so cool it makes up for it.

Accommodation was difficult for us too, but we found a room for 80 euros a night, and since there were four of us and two double beds it was very reasonable. In Venice, not Mestre, as well.

Saskatchewan. And, oh, hey, that’s where I did spend it.
