Maybe my last tourism trip

A few months ago I realized that I had a few extra thousand in my bank account and wondered what to do with it. So I researched and booked a trip to Opatija, a well known destination in Istria, Croatia.

I soon realized that I could undertake a day visit to Venice by train (a 2 hour ride). So I booked a hotel for one night (Albergo Doge) and seats on the train from Trieste to Venice.

I say “maybe my last tourism trip” in my title because I am 77 and I am finding it harder to walk for extended periods. But I have never been to Venice or the Dalmatian coastline and look forward to seeing places I’ve not been yet.
