Nancy's Not Near Philly Anymore

Nancy has been writing about her summer travels. Celebrating 46 years of marriage, she and her husband Joe left the city of brotherly love and landed in Venice, Italy, to begin their journey. She is sailing the Mediterranean aboard Royal Clipper, and was kind enough to share her experience with us. Below are some excerpts from her blog. For her whole story you can visit her personal blog Nancy Near Philadelphia.


Venice is a charming city. Everywhere there is water, and there are millions of narrow alleys and small footbridges over waterways. There are no cars; we took a water-bus from the airport to the hotel and a boat-cab later when we were ready to move on...There are police boats, ambulance boats, commercial delivery boats and although we didn't see one, hearse boats.


We left downtown Venice by water-taxi for a fifteen-or-twenty-minute ride. When we got to the pier, look who was waiting for us: Royal Clipper!


Before very long, we were settled into our lovely cabin. And then it was time to go up on deck for Sail Away -- as lovely music played, the sails were raised and we bid farewell to Venice.
