Italy / Travel

From the beach to Venice

I’ve been meaning to post an update for the past week.

We had an amazing time on the beach. Everything about it was relaxing. We are so spoiled to have family that live so close to the ocean. It was also great to have some extra time to practice my Italian. Everyone was so patient with me.

We left the beach for a night in Rome before heading to Venice for the Biennale of Architecture. I’ve always had a soft spot for the Trevi Fountain, here is Chris’ attempt to take my photo.

We’ve been in Venice for 5 days and leave today. It’s been a lot of fun, but I’m glad to be leaving. It’s been jam packed and trying to organize meeting points for 7 people has at times been frustrating. Chris and I are off for a few days of quiet time just the two of us and I can’t wait.
