August 5: Flight back to USA

All good things must come to an end and this trip is no exception. The time spent in Venice was amazing and challenging with the crisscrossing of alleys and canals. Each presented itself in a different way and made the city unique.

The Barge/Bike portion was fabulous not only because of the opportunity to bike up the Po Delta and nearby waterways, but also the great support and friendship that come from such a great group of women who chose to "bike Italy". There is no better way to see the world than from a bicycle seat!

Florence is every art lovers dream city. Each building, alleyway, piazza emote the Renaissance era. Master pieces from years gone by fill the city's facilities with eye catching wonder. Every way one turns there is another extraordinary piece of art in one form or another.

Back to the USA with great memories!
