We made reservations for that Friday night. That Friday afternoon, I received a text asking me to confirm… Please confirm your reservation for Better Than Sex Orlando tonight by texting […]

Collage Restaurant
St. Augustine, Florida

Back in November we made dinner reservations at Collage Restaurant for our New Year’s trip to St. Augustine. In mid-December, Collage had once again appeared on the Trip Advisor Top 100 List.

We arrived in Bellissima Venezia…Finally! After all that waiting in Frankfurt, we were in Venice. No immigration processing in Venice, since we’d done it in Frankfurt (the Polizei who processed me explained that once you’re in the EU, you’re good).
