Gondola ride in Venice

This morning's CBS "Sunday Morning" featured the story of a 40 member family from U.S.A. celebrating an anniversary by going to Venice, Italy. They had a great time and so did we when Elaine, Carolyn, Julie and I visited Venice some years ago as part of a 10-Country European Tour. It was the summer before Julie's Senior year in HS and we were young enough to enjoy the rigors of foreign travel. We were gone from May 25 till June 13 which included a few days with distant relatives in England before meeting up with our tour. Italy was a most pleasant surprise for all of us. Our expectations were not great and every place we went it was more enjoyable than anticipated. Carolyn and Julie really enjoyed their gondola ride but it was in Rome where the waiters made a fuss over all the ladies, that the pleasure meter hit a new high.
