After a dissapointing weekend of racing I cruised in the van into the depths of Italy to a place called 'Oriago', close to Venezia (Venice). I am staying here with my friend who is an Italian paddler, Angela. So far it has been awesome! The coffee here is super! Her family are great. The gelato and home made wine is good too:). Tommorrow Angela has an exam but her brother is going to take me into Venice to explore and soak up some Italian culture. I have begun to learn Italian now too, its a bit tricky but good fun. I will try put some pics up soon as.
Life is really good at the moment:)
