We open in Venice… Tracie P and I head to Italy!

We open in Venice,
We next play Verona,
Then on to Cremona.
Lotsa laughs in Cremona.
Our next jump is Parma,
That dopey, mopey menace,
Then Mantua, then Padua,
Then we open again, where?

Seriously, we do open in Venice: this morning finds Tracie P and me on our way to Italy. We land tomorrow morning in Venice and then head to Padua (yes, Padua, not Padova, as the city is called in the language of Shakespeare!) where I’ll be taking Tracie P on a tour of my alma mater, l’Università di Padova. On this trip, we’ll be in Venice, Padua, Valdobbiadene, Valpolicella, and Friuli. And then I’ll be staying on to lead a group of bloggers to the Colli Orientali del Friuli, the eastern hills of Friulian wine country.

We have a pretty amazing itinerary ahead, with visits to lots of groovy wineries and restaurants. And, our anniversary! We’ll be dining in Venice that night… :-)

See Tracie P’s post here…

WARNING: lots of yummy, stinky, crunchy, deliciously lip-smacking wine ahead… thanks for reading ya’ll! See you on the other side!
