48 hours in Venice and I’ve…

  • had gelato (yummy Italian ice cream) twice
  • realized that cities without cars are really, really nice
  • seen the famous glassblowers of Murano
  • travelled all over the city via “vaporetti” (canal ferries)
  • dipped my toes in the Mediterranean at the beach on the Lido
  • applauded the string quartets playing in St. Mark’s Square at night
  • taken pictures of the colorful little houses in Burano
  • eaten a pizza as thin as a tortilla and bigger than a record album
  • made more references to the Venice episode of The Amazing Race than I can count.

Unfortunately the city itself isn’t the only Race similarity. I used to think it was ridiculous how some of the teams treated each other. Now I realize that irritation, impatience, and general irrational behaviour is to be expected when you travel with one person for an extended period of time. Yes, the Snook and I are driving each other crazy. It’s been three weeks of seeing each other 24-7 and we’re going maaaaaad. If you don’t hear from me by the end of the week, it’s probably because one of us finally pushed the other into a canal. 🙂
