The video begins with several still photos of the water taxi being loaded with luggage in the Ca' Foscari canal and heading toward the Grand Canal.
Once the boat is on the open water, the taxi acqueo becomes a speedboat as it heads for the airport (passing water buses and an Alilaguna airport boat along the way).
The video concludes with the three of us (Durant, Cheryl, and our dog Maggie of Maggieinvenice.com) arriving at the airport and heading for the check-in desk in the departures terminal.
