MD-80’s are retiring

After many years of venerable service, the MD-80’s in the American Airlines fleet are being retired. I had a great flight aboard one recently and had the good fortune to make his short video:

The pilots were great guys, giving me the opportunity to capture footage with my Osmo Pocket camera. Thanks to them and American Airlines.

Water Taxi to Venice Airport

The water taxi ride to Venice Airport is another one of those things that costs some money but is worth it. Here’s the video, leaving the heart of Venice all the way to the airport. Stay with it to see an airplane on final approach. You’ll see plenty of action in the small canals, too.

Enjoy the journey where you’re going.

Rialto Bridge, Venice, Italy

Another one of those must-see place, the Rialto Bridge definitely has its charm. Best seen from a gondola ride:
