Italy · Venice


Next stop: Venice! The interesting thing about this city is that in place of normal transportation, you have to take a boat everywhere. It was inefficient, expensive (7 euros for every hour), and most of all annoying.

We arrived very late the first night, and when we woke up the next morning my friend and I looked at each other and said, “So… Do you know what there is to do in Venice?” We kinda got caught up in planning all our hostels and flights that we didn’t do much tourist research. Oops. Thankfully we quickly found out that the best thing to do in Venice is get lost, and it’s not very hard to do. We spent most of our time stumbling upon the major tourist attractions by chance and enjoying a very photogenic city.

Yep, travel by boat was not my cup of tea. Neither was Italian, and to be honest I think three gelatos in one day is just too much. Such a beautiful place but boy, was I excited to go back to France.
