Next on our itinerary was VENICE!!!!
Venice has been on my shortlist of dream places I want to visit for a long time, and I was a tad disappointed that, despite my best efforts to fit it in, it never did end up making sense to squeeze into our itinerary in May, especially since the rest of my family was more keen on seeing Rome. I reluctantly gave up on trying to add it in only with the promise that Glen would try to get me there someday.
Little did I know that I would have the opportunity a mere six months later.
I was so excited when Kristina and I were making plans for this trip and I realized that Venice could actually happen. We ended up with barely 24-hours there, but it was 24-hours of a dream come true for me!
To maximize our time there, we went on a gondola ride around town...
I could gush and gush about how much I loved it, but I think I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.
Basilica de San Marco (Saint Mark's)
It was rainy, beautiful, and I LOVED it!
