Venice

Getting off the train and walking into Venice, it was like a whole different world a part from the rest of Italy.

I describe Venice as a beautiful sinking maze. The canals, bridges, streets and gondolas that dominate the city is such a new experience for me, but I did love exploring Venice!

Evening we arrived:

We ate lunch at our favorite little cafe called Cafe Basilica . If you’re ever in Venice you have to go and eat there. So good!!

  1. Good Morning Melissa:

    Where did you go between Florence and Venice? Did you backpack the country side vineyards? When will you meet up with your parents? We would love to talk to you in person and hear your stories! Maria is here visiting. We are enjoying her stay, albeit very short :0

    We hold you in prayer and much love. Papa and Bonna

    1. I did not travel anywhere in between. It would be awesome to see more of the countryside but I just don’t have enough time. I see them tomorrow. ūüôā have a great time with Maria!!
