We left our hostel in the morning to catch a train to Venice. All I have to say about Italian trains is screw the eurostar italia and all its stupid booking fees! Anywho, we took the train to Venice and then attempted to follow the directions to get to the bus that would take us to our hostel/campground. It took us a while, but eventually we found it. We got on the bus and headed to our hostel. We checked in and they directed us to our PIN. I am so glad we 'splurged' the 16 euros on that instead of getting a tent. The pin had 3 beds and air conditioning and a bathroom in it. It was awesome. We put our stuff in there and then walked around for a bit.

We went to the grocery store and bought some snack food(chips and a watermelon) and a bottle of wine each, red for me and white for Lori). We were just hanging out, having some wine and then we saw a couple people doing the same so we went to talk to them. It was 2 guys our age from Ireland. They had 4 other friends meeting them there. We drank our whole bottles of wine each before 8pm. Bad idea. Then we bought another bottle each. Worse idea. So we had quite a bit to drink. Don't really remember a lot after that but I'm pretty sure we both passed out before 11:00. It was still an awesome time though.
