In a sense, our sailing adventure leads us to an ancient route: the western part of the Silk Road. Already in Roman times, trading ships followed this route on the Mediterranean. Once we drove eastwards on the Silk Road by car (www.enkeltjezijderoute.nl), now we are sailing westwards by boat, on the same route. From Porec (Croatia), we picked up a steady north eastern wind (18-23 knots) that brought us to Venezia in no-time! We enjoyed Venezia for three days, in the wonderful company of our friends Anne & Rutger.
