Venice and Switzerland

snow -3 °C

I just realised that I forgot to write about our time in Venice. We only spent a day there, which is a bit disappointing cause it is so nice and beautiful. However we were very lucky as it flooded on christmas day, and the picture of Venice from New Years it was flooded again. So a couple days before and after we were there it was totally flooded. Thank god it wasnt flooded when we were there, pulling our bags through the water would not have been fun.

We went on a gondola ride, we ended up get it for cheaper as we walked away (not even trying to play had to get) and he walked after us calling "lady, lady". He was a very good and funny, gondola man. Catherine is a little scared of boats, and she and katelyn would scream everytime it tipped a little bit. So in no time he was rocking the boat and laughing at them. It was hilarious. Everybody would look. He also told us about the areas we were going through, including the building from Casino Royale that got blown up. He then told us that they did it digitally, really thanks i thought they would have actually blown it up.

So back to Switzerland. We arrived in switzerland at like 11pm. And the train network is horrible! no signs anywhere. so it was impossible to find the train we needed to get to our hotel! We found a very nice Swiss couple that took us to the right platform and made sure we were all okay. Thank god for them cause the last trains were fast approaching and we didnt have any Swiss Frank to pay for a taxi.

We woke up in the morning, looked out the window and it was snowing!! It will never get old. I love when it snows. We spent the day in Zurich. Wondering around. So many chocolate shops and so EXPENSIVE. Sorry family no swiss chocolate for you. For dinner we had chinese, and it was soo good. Catherine was getting high off the soy sauce, and I can say i have missed spring rolls. It was very nice and satisfying. While expensive we shared two entree and one main. It was so worth it.

I am currently in Berlin, sitting in a restaurant attached to the Hostel. Yes I am on the internet in a restaurant but im not really eating, catherine and katelyn are. We went on the free tour this morning after arriving at like 7 30. and guess what? I finally got my BACON AND EGG MCMUFFIN! although i must admit it is much better back in australia. We are going to go the concentration camp tomorrow which is going to be depressing. and then its off to Amsterdam and my Eurotrip is almost over :(
