Awesome shots of your day at Venice. You're making me want to go back there!

The food looks great. And I couldn't believe that you disorganised a non-english tour! WOW! You must have been busy in the lead-up to the holiday.

I adore Venice and we have been lucky enough to visit twice now. The weather looks gorgeous and what a wonderful place to see the New Year. As always wow you covered so much in one day. Will the children be able to keep up the skiing back home in winter? We have never skiied but the resort looked fantastic. As for cocktails-just half a one always seems to make me so sick...now a glass of wine or champagne or prosecco (when in Venice...) that's a different story.

PIO, you have no idea how crazy it was before we left. I didn't sleep the 24 hours before the flight...not by choice!

I have never been this disorganised for any trip! We will be winging Florence...

Lucky you having the opportunity to visit twice. I think I mentioned this before but I have a soft spot for Italy and I simply love Venice.

We are fortunate that the children are doing well to maintain the pace! The day of rest after skiing helped a little as did the travel day. We would love the children to be able to ski again sometime soon to consolidate their skills...so maybe NZ?!? I'm still working on DH for that one

Shushh - I sneaked ahead to your foggy day at Venice. What a fabulous day and what great pictures. Love the colours and the Disney find!

And you'll do fine winging it at Florence. Lots of walking and markets.

Sneak ahead anytime! Sometimes I forget to post the link here. Thank you for your encouraging words and for reading along whilst you're away!

Venice is beautiful even in fog. It just takes on a different quality. We were surprised at how many people were up and about even on NY day.

I have been "reading ahead" also, your Venice pics are wonderful.
Re skiing in NZ, I get the impression that there are some very good package deals for Aussies to go to Queenstown ( Coronet Peak & The Remarkables) and Wanaka ( Cardrona & Treble Cone). Certainly we have seen LOTS of Australians at Cardrona when we have been there. Cardrona is our favourite for a family friendly ski field

Thank you! I never really took much notice of ski specials before as I'm not really a skier, so these suggestions help! Will definitely be researching them after this trip.

Due to a terrible head cold and an inability to sleep for 3 hours last night I have finally managed to completely catch up, whew.

I have loved every minute of your journey so far and I think I even glimpsed a few shots of Jonah looking at the camera and gasp, smiling .

The one thing that is missing young lady, is pictures of you. Please please please make more of an effort to get in front of the camera. If not for yourself, for your children later on.

Venice just looks super duper stunning. I cannot wait to go there one day. I enjoyed seeing your castle in Carcassone (did I spell that right).

And Club Med - are you serious. That is some great luxury for parents right there . Wowsers.

Can't wait to see and read more.

Your photos are stunning.
