Sadly we had to say goodbye to Venice this morning. But this was the start of a whole new adventure for us. Roadtrip, baby! We picked up our rental this morning and were off … driving on the wrong side of the road. What a mindset shift.

Our first stop, Padua, was merely for a coffee & pastry and getting our bearings and plotting our route using Google maps. Back to the autostrade and off to Verona we went.

Our accommodation for the next two nights is Agriturismo “Le Case Di Campagna” and what a great find, thanks to Colleen who did the searching online. Huge room, crisp white linen, wide open spaces outside and peace and quiet. Perfect after busy days in Rome, Florence and Venice.

The afternoon has been spent relaxing with our feet up and planning the next leg of our roadtrip.
