Venice to Berlin

overcast 13 °C

Today we woke up early to catch a flight from Marco Polo Airport (Venice) to Berlin. We had another hearty breakfast at the Best Western hotel which included scrambled eggs, fried ham, a variety of cheeses, fresh hams, salami and green and black olives, ricotta cheese, yoghurt and fresh fruits such as strawberries, kiwi fruit and canteloupe, breads and a variety of venetian biscuits (which I could not sample), cereals, tea and coffee.

Neal and I managed to fumble our way to the main shopping centre (huge) at Marcon yesterday. Boy, that was unbelievable, our GPS lost connectivity and so we were on our own. Some how we fumbled our way to the shopping centre. We managed to get our GPS up and running again for the way back to the hotel.

We have noticed that most of Europe, that we have visited so far, have a lot of roundabouts in each city or town. It is not easy for us to drive. It has not been smooth and we have faced many challenges on our journey so far, however we are having fun. The main challenges have been the language barriers and just finding things such as post offices or mobile phone credit recharges. Thank goodness for Neal's download of various language translators. It has helped us get by as well.

Tomorrow we explore Berlin.
