We got through the Alps with a minimum of traffic or slowdowns. There were some slight gradual changes from Austrian styles to Italian styles as we crossed the border, but that part of Italy used to belong to Austria, so I wasn't surprised. Once we had passed through a few of the tunnels, though, we suddenly came to a place where the architecture was markedly more Mediterranean, even in the mountains.

We got to the sib's place in Pordenone, dropped our stuff, then headed over into Aviano for lunch at one of his friend's restaurant. I had some really delicious grilled calamari and polenta, then we went to the base at Aviano, where we are doing some laundry and I'm using the free wifi in the community center next door. The sib has hard wired internet but has never actually had a visitor who needed wifi, so he doesn't have it. I'll be confined to either using his or using wifi on the base or a cafe in town until I get home.

Tomorrow we will probably be going to Venice. After that, we're likely just to relax and do a few local things but not much else. He's tired from the trip back from Prague and I'm kind of on the edge of being utterly fried myself. I can hardly believe it's nearly done. At the same time, I'm really looking forward to being home and collapsing in a heap. I really do need to.

Having a quick breakfast then on the road for the sib's place. Weather is clear and bright. Looking forward to the trip!

It took us longer than we'd hoped due to traffic through Prague and some other slowdowns, but here we are at a guesthouse in Salzburg. It's still early enough in the day to try doing a few things and we each have a 24-hour bus ticket. Hmmmm, what to do, what to do?
