July 10, 2010


Oh my goodness, Venice was such a long day. We woke up around 4:45 AM so that we could get ready to catch the bus, metro, and train all the way out to Venice. The train was in was terrible. The train was very cramped, there were people standing in the aisles, and it was really hot because there was no air condition in the car we were in. When we arrived in Venice I was thrilled! Venice is on my life's to do list and I did it! We walked around for a while looking at all the little shops. We decided we were going to try to find St. Mark's Square or something. We ended up walking around for hours and in circles unable to find it.
Somewhere around 4 in the afternoon, we felt like we were going to pass out. We hadn't eaten breakfast and we had been walking around shopping for the past 6 hours so we needed to find food fast. We had the roughest time finding food with the kitchens close in the afternoon deal. Finally we settled on a really expensive restaurant that we paid 4,50 Euro for a coke but got the best spaghetti I had ever had in my life.
After eating we walked around the famous bridge, finally found the Square and eventually made it back to the train setting us home around 1030 at night. It was a great day and Venice is absolutely great!
