Venice was the venue for a very successful tour, which saw all the games being played at our own hotel, but even then, we managed to be late for a game.

Highlights of the tour included Tim's mission to find St. Marks Square, before David Gourlay got walloped in the mush with a hard futsal ball and spent the rest of the tour in a bad mood. The tour was one of the most relaxing ones in comparison to the Spain one. Two days and two sets of games on each.
