Spent the day travelling through the beautiful Austrian countryside and into Italy to arrive in Venice late afternoon. Staying at a camping ground a bit out of the city in a caravan thing we like to refer to as Colleen Smarts trailer. Swimming pool was first on the list, tested out Aims new waterproof camera and then time to sample our first Italian food. Dinner at camping ground restaurant with Julia from Canada - gnocchi, wine and gelato....a sign of good things to come.
And how did the camping ground know we were coming and would be SO down with a FOAM PARTY! Memories of everyones first night out at Otago Uni come flooding back....However they don't do things by half here, the foam was extreme, death by foam inhalation was an imminent threat, foam came out of a giant cannon at a rapid rate controlled by a crazy italian who, if you dared make eye contact, would shoot foam right in your face. Luckily the pool was right next door so could jump in, de-foam, clean eyes and back into the party within minutes. Awesome night, after making foam angels in the leftover foam rolled back to caravan with Aim feeling as if we'd had facelifts and our hair stripped - foam is not the a recommended beauty product in case anyone was wondering.
