Sounds you had a good day wandering Venice after you found the luggage spot. We leave in 10 days for our river cruise and after the cruise staying 4 nights on our own in Switzerland. I'm forcing myself to pack as light as possible since at that point we'll be lugging our own suitcases to the train, from the train to the hotel etc. It was a little painful reading about you getting checked into your apt.! Such poor execution on the owner's part! I'm glad that you did enjoy the apt after all - it did have a great view. Really love the Venice pictures!
