Federico....you are such a lovely person. No problem re the hotel and the Frankfurt nite stayover. It is what it is. I am owning my actions for not being vigilant about ensuring that i make it to my 7:30 am flight.
All these hassle doesn't take away my enjoyment and relaxation during my stay in Venice. Coming back to visit local friends I have established over the years , walking around the nice streets/bridges and just taking time off from very hectic work schedule is precious!
Again, thank you and Bridget for helping me out. Your hospitality, consideration and warm welcome will not be forgotten. Take care. Chat
