Large city, empty streets

27 Jul

Last night on the way to a friend’s going away dinner, the streets seemed more quiet than normal.  Sometimes in one of the largest cities, you can have an incredibly peaceful moment.

Have a great weekend!

Travel Thursdays! Venice, Italy Edition

13 Oct

Ohhh Italy… You hear about it from everyone who has experienced it but yet it’s never the same as when you experience it for yourself.  Strolling through the cobble stone streets is even more enchanting when you have not a worry in the world but to enjoy your travels.  I love how you either walk or take a boat taxi everywhere in Venice.  The food and desserts are also a huge reason to see the sights of Venice.  This is coming from a person though that could be won over by a single slice of delectable pizza… Here are some photos of what I enjoyed when in Venice.

The infamous Rialto Bridge.

View from a gondola.

Corridors.

No handicap access anywhere, just an FYI.  I like the symmetry of these stairs though.  We hiked them with our luggage which is always entertaining!

YUM!

Casanova’s home.

Our Gondolier.

Water taxis.

By St. Mark’s Plaza.

Birds!

Prison across the water.

I loved all the beautiful glass work at the shops and the cheap jewelry.  You can’t go to Venice and not take home a keepsake.  It’s a beautiful place that should be a bucket lister.  I’d love to go back and hopefully will in the future 🙂
