Day 7: Conegliano - Venice

Woke up today due to a machine doing something outside, a little fly and the alarms. Went down to breakfast and had a lot to eat and then packed up all our stinky clothes and set of towards Mestre, the city on the coast of Venice. Basically we hammered away kilometres on flat to downhill roads. After about one hour we where half finished already, stopped in some shade as we had 31℃ and had a bit to eat. We also followed a race biker a few times, us keeping up surprisingly, before he turned of a different way. Arriving in Mestre we spent a long time actually looking for a place to stay and after criss-crossing the town, found a relatively cheap hotel with internet. We had planned to spend the next day in Venice, but after finding out that the train fare is only 1,25€ we went over and had a look at the town. Got lost a few minutes in the city and ended up at the wrong end of town, as I had planned to head to St. Mark square. Even after asking someone with a map and asking directions we didn't find it. Just by chance after eating dinner we found the square and had a look around before heading back to the hotel in the (hopefully) right train to write the blog and have some rest.
