Although we have missed the Carnevale, we can’t wait to get to Venice next week and try some of the local wines of that region!
While we have never been big fans of fizz, we are keen to have a sip or three of the Prosecco and, the Veneto classic Lambrusco!
Seafood will be high on the agenda and a magnificent fish laden dinner has been booked aboard a galleon ship that will cruise around the lagoons of Venice while we eat.
We will be meeting virtual friends, who, we hope will become real friends after we meet – this is the life force of social media! Our lives have been enriched by the many many friends we have met this medium … some we have yet to meet face to face, but when we do, you can be sure a glass or three of wine will be drunk!
We are especially looking forward to meeting, at last, Monica Cesarato and going out with her on one of her amazing walking, drinking, eating, chatting tours of Venice … this one is called the Cicchetti tour . Afterwards, we hope that a few other virtual-soon-to-become-real friends will join us for a glass of wine and a good old-fashioned chinwag!
