Orientation...Aviano Air Force Base

Typical one lane bridge in remote villages
Our Calzone are not this huge
As you can we are taking in excellent food & Calories
Very warm this morning, partly cloudy and humid. Walked over a block to the Base Exchange to see about getting a vehicle to rent. I was the first inline when they opened, only to find out that they didn’t have any cars left to rent! The English speaking lady called another rental agency and they had vehicles available. We, Sam and I, would have to wait for a shuttle bus to take us into Aviano City proper later in the morning. Another retired “Space A” traveler had a reservation and got his vehicle rental. He offered to take us off base to the other agency. We had our rental and by 10:30 am, we were back on base. We rented the vehicle for 30 days with unlimited milage, but a 200 kilometer circle of Aviano. That would give us about 124 mile radius which would cover just about everything we wanted to explore on our own. We would be booking tours for anything further.
Joan wasn’t feeling up to par and she decided to rest for the afternoon in the hotel room. Sam took us all around Aviano and showed us the house were he & Joan used to live. Later that evening, we all went to a restaurant for an excellent home made Italian style dinner.
That is what we did and saw!
