Today has been relatively worthless but it has been fantastic.
I woke up and immediately got on the train in Florence for Venice. It wasn't too bad (a couple hours) and I got into town at about 12:30. I immediately got lost trying to find my hostel and walked around for about an hour before I found it. The buildings literally start in a direction at number 1 and go all the way up. I was at 2205 but it was like sort of back in an alley, it was so confusing. And then, when I found it, there was no sign on the door so I was hesitant to just ring some random person's doorbell. But I eventually did, and it was right.
The hostel is awesome. It's a really old HUGE house with big ceilings and its going to be fun. We also get free dinner and breakfast and internet is pretty cheap as well. I think it's going to be fun.
I spent the rest of the afternoon walking around town and looking at the canals and what not. I also stopped into a market to buy lunch where I picked up some ham, cheese, bread, olives, artichoke spread and 2 bottles of wine (one for my free dinner). YUMM!!
It's dark early so I think I'm going to head back and have a snack before dinner starts up at the hostel. Tomorrow will be jam packed with activities I am sure.
