Hi, My Name is Tammy & my new girl is June. She is a 6 speed manual 2010 JCW Metallic Graphite Black Mini and we reside in the Beautiful Okanagan Valley in BC, Canada. She is my second as my first - Sally, 2008 Lightning Blue Mini Cooper S, went to Mini Heaven when she was in a horrific crash with my two son & daughter in June 2010. I was told that these cars were too small and unsafe and I shouldn't own one. Well, Sally proved them wrong when my children walked away with a goose egg & a small cut from the broken glass after she cart wheeled three times. Sally was a total write-off & I cry when I think what she has done for my family :'(
Needless to say, I bought another Mini and I drive my JCW everyday with huge smiles and the power is invigorating. Road trip for 2011 is to drive to Vegas with my Hubby :)
Wow! Sally really did her job well. I love to hear how safe they are. June is pretty nice too

Hi both cities are eesnxpive but Milan has a wider choice of hotels in its hinterland and a good transport system. Venice historical also has many hotels but not all of them are good value for money. Venice is a tourist city and prices and quality of service highly depends on the season you are visiting. When are you going there? What is your budget.. I mean how much are you willing to spend on your accommodation per night?Venice has a large hinterland that extends from Mestre (the terra-firma) to Treviso and there are many choices of accommodation there.. B B's, country hotels etc.. prices usually vary between 60 and 120 euros per night with breakfast. Transport is usually good but can be a problem in certain areas after 10 PM.You can take a train from Milan to Venice the intercity ride will take about 3 hours. It is feasible to visit the city in a day and return on the night train but that would be rushing it and you wouldn't really enjoy it much. It is easier to get from Venice to Bologna in terms of transport (there is a direct train line and commuters take it regularly) and Venice also has a large international airport. I can probably suggest hotels around Venice as I am from that area but Milan can be a little bit trickier. Hope this helps .
