When in Venice…

Monday, October 20, 2014

… you ride a gondola… but if you're super cheap like me, you just attempt to make eye contact with the gondoliers and smile coyly in the hopes that he will let you sit in the gondola to take a photo… which, in my case, failed repeatedly.  

In any case, Venice is amazing.  I love visiting a new place with the express purpose of getting lost, which was insanely easy to do in Venice.  For real.  The dead ends and twists and turns of the city make me wonder if the original architects a gazillion years ago weren't in some sort of insane opium haze when they planned the layout of this place.  

By the end of the night, in my heeled booties, after a day of airplanes, boats, trains and buses, I was ready to go to bed, but it was in these small hours of the night that we ended up getting super lost.  Like, feeling like a mouse in a maze in an evil scientist's laboratory lost.  

… in any case, Venice is amazing… and I discovered that I am obsessed with gondolas.
