“the whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.” – g. k. chesterton
it's said that once you travel, you catch the travel bug! that's what happened to me and my husband after our honeymoon. in fact, we were plagued by the bug!!! fast forward years later and many travel experiences later with a new baby, traveling has slowed down a bit...well, actually A LOT. but we definitely got traveling out of our system...for now. the urge to travel is still there, hibernating within us, but traveling will come with time. there is SO much more to see and experience! we can't wait for the adventures as we travel together as a family. we want to share with our daughter the joys of learning about other cultures and gaining a different perspective. and one day, we'll be able to travel just as a couple. it's essential to continuing a happy healthy relationship!
so for now, i'll have to relive our travels through pictures and thought i'd share them with you. today, i'll start with venice...probably my favorite city...so far. :)
view from our hotel...
view from st. mark's campanile.
while walking at night, my husband wanted to take a picture here.
one of the best surprises about venice is getting lost in the alleys/streets and discovering
a quaint cafe by the water in a quieter area of the city.
we decided to take a gondola ride under the moonlit sky...yes, it was every bit as romantic
as i imagined it to be. :)
one of my favorite views from the rialto bridge...there is something very special about cities with
a river or body of water running through it, but venice takes it to a whole new level!
from st. mark's campanile...me wearing a j. crew tank.
view from our ship...we took a meds cruise via princess cruise line.
what can i say, i'm a tourist. this pose is a must! :) from our hotel, we took a water taxi...a pretty
posh taxi, which we shared two other people on our cruise because let me tell you, the sticker
price was ridiculous with the exchange rate at that time. but it was well worth the price to make
sure we got to our ship in time to start our cruise. me with another j. crew outfit.
i hope to make thursdays a "travel" day.
happy thursday everyone! thanks for reading!
