Elements of Risk

I hear a giggle in Wyona’s voice.  It is about risk and thrill.  Having never been to Venice and stayed in a hotel, there is an element of risk in the instructions  – be at St. Marco’s where someone will meet you and walk you to the hotel.  You will not find this place on your own.

If all goes well on Moiya’s plane and vaporetta travel plans, she is the one who will get to the hotel first.  But as I heard Wyona just say to Greg, “Still scary, doing something we have never done before.”

I don’t have the wits to be frightened.

  1. Ah, Venice. What a charming city. I wish when I had been there I hadn't been so exhausted that I fell asleep on the gondola ride, or was it a canal boat tour we took Rebecca? Did you stay awake for it?

    Isn't St Marc's Basillica amazing!

    Thank you Bates family, for making it possible for a 18 year old girl to go to Venice with her 21 year old sister.

    Another life-time.

    And being scared? Yes, I was somewhere between terrified and in awe on most of my Eurorail trip.

    Giggle. Giggle.
