The Merchant of Venice

The long train trip both ways was definitely worth it for our little adventurous trip to Venezia. We arrived in the evening and after talking to the shady water taxi drivers, who assured us 60 Euro was a normal price for a taxi (it wasn't), we tried our luck with the ferry. Not going to lie, choosing the right ferry line without any help made us kind of feel invisible, sort of like a superhero. Of course almost getting lost trying to find our hotel made us feel less like superheroes, but I digress.

We woke up around 9 in the morning for buffet breakfast (Bella's favourite thing in the world) and then grabbed our tourist essentials: Camera, map and wide, impressionable eyes.

Actually, we didn't have a map, but I needed to add something else for effect. The fact we didn't have a map (or google maps) meant that our magnificent aimless wonderings, made us lose our way. Except, in all seriousness, getting lost in Venice doesn't really sound all that bad. With the help of a nice American man (we chose him because we were sure of his tourist/english speaking status) we eventually found our way back to our hotel. We picked up our weekender totes, walked to a nice restaurant and had one final meal in the Floating City, before heading back to Pisa.

Enjoy the New Year,
