    I still love books & while weight requirements mean traveling light is more impt now than ever, wifi might not always be accessible online & offline guides might not have all I want. Depending on the location, I might definitely want the guide. Hopefully, it's lightweight

    I have lots of guide books for different countries, but it's OH who does the most research....I think he had eleven pages from the internet for a couple of days in Venice, and he walked or sailed to every one of the 8 districts.
    I'm more likely to be found in some little bistro, sampling the local wines......

    WELL, it is Italy and the Veneto produces many interesting, unique wine varieties worth sampling! I tried mapping out my routes but w/tough to read or missing street names, I got happily lost which I now recommend in Venice!

    Kudos to Sir Jocap for making it through all 8 districts! I get very "Italian" in Italy and do a lot of shoulder shrugging...s'alright...va bene, food, wine, just feeling the sun on my face, the views.....all of it. But indeed finding certain things I must! (Try)
