Yo....We made it to Wein (Vienna Austria) safe and sound this afternoon. This place is a zoo. There are a couple of streets that have no cars, but there are definitely people traffic jams. There are street performers, sightseers, and craziness everywhere. It is pretty much the Boulder Pearl Street amplified 1000 times. We hit an internet cafe to check on a possible hotel in Venice as well as research other portions of our trip. The game plan may be changing again, as I emailed my work buddy Stefano who has a cabin in Falcade Italy, just north of Venice. We are going to try to stay there on the 19th and 20th.
As for now, we are about to have some food and contend with all the tourists, then we will be on the night train for Venice tonight at 2040 hrs. We will be spending the following night in Venice (18th). We will continue to keep you all posted as much as we can.
