The Tweet-Up I Missed

As many of you may know, I was in London and Venice last week. During my trip I was stricken with a horrible case of the stomach flu and had to cancel several days worth of events and meetings -- including a tweet-up I'd been looking forward to for weeks.

What's a "tweet-up"? It is a meeting of people who know each other from Twitter. In this case, I was due to meet up with @Seindal (aka Rene Seindal), @LivingVenice (aka Nan McElroy), and @MonicaCeserato -- all residents of Venice and the Veneto.

Well, as it turns out, Rene, Nan, and Monica had a wonderful tweet-up and went for a boat ride together through Cannaregio, one of Venice's most picturesque neighborhoods. Rene blogged about the event -- and posted some fantastic photos. I hope you'll check it out!

Interested in experiencing Venice by boat? 

Check out their links and follow them all on Twitter, too!

** This just in... Monica blogged about the tweet-up, too.  Here's a link to her side of the story: A Venetian Who has Never Been on a Boat?  [added Friday, October 23, 2009]

Too bad you couldn't make it, but now you have the perfect excuse for coming back - you're at least two spritz and a couple of cicchetti behind :-)
