A blog about travel in central Europe, living overseas for the first time, adjusting to a different culture, food, "lost in translation" moments, parenting and "enjoying the ride". There will be an occasional rant about trying to learn Hungarian and the Hungarian postal service.

Venice- Our first night
We settled into the hotel with only a minimum of trouble. We're staying here at the fancy schmancy Westin Regina and Europa Hotel on the Grand Canal on both Starwood points and Starwood Friends and Family discount, compliments of Kathy's friend Michael. But it means that we have to change room tomorrow, since they were 2 different reservations. Kathy called and emailed, and was told everything was set, and that we could have the same rooms for 2 nights, But-- um, no. Not so much. So, we'll change rooms tomorrow.
We went out to explore and take some pictures. (how surprising, right?)
Here are some of the shots we liked.
