In 2010, when I embarked on my trip around the world, my first stop was Venice. It would be an understatement for me to say that I was ill prepared for the weather and that I was freezing! (Oh, and my hostel had a busted window so it wasn’t very cozy.) However, I was so overwhelmed by how beautiful the city really was and thrilled that it was my first stop. If you find any late holiday deals, I highly recommend visiting this old and enchanting city. Venice really resonated with me, with its quaint little canals and so much detail in its buildings. The stucco that has crumbled away to expose old brickwork, the peeling paint, and the arched windows, along with beautiful colors and textures, were just some of the details that I admired. Here are some of my favorite photos from my time in Venice.
During my visit, I also went to Burano, which was so colorful and a beautiful place to wander and take a day trip. Have you been to Venice or Burano?
