Another travel day in the books for Christine and Shanes Europe trip. We took a train from Venice to Belluno, which is where we met Mr. DeMartin. The father of a friend and coworker, Mr. DeMartin showed us all the ropes of the Italian Alps. We were able to get a nice hike in, then he showed us where Lance Armstrong rode in the last Giro d'talia (sp?), then made us an authenic Tirolean dinner. If money was not an object, I think we would keep traveling for a while. But alas, all good things have to come to an end.
We are planning a nice hike tomorrow and an overall chill day, before taking yet another train ride. We will head to Venazza and the Cinque Terre region for the last destination of our journey. We will be there for 2 nights, before heading back to Zurich and back to the good ol US of A. The rest of the trip is set, so there should not be any more changes from here on out. We should have internet access in Vernazza if anyone needs to contact us.
I think we are getting close to the 500 mark on the number of pictures we have taken so everyone get ready for a bunch of pictures. Actually, I have taken the approach that the more pictures I take, the better the chances of having a good one! Besides all the ones that I have taken of Christine (which are all good), hopefully there are a couple others that are worth seeing. Look for picture posts in the near future. Until then, take care and we look forward to talking to everyone soon.
Shane and Christine
