City of water – Venice, Venise, Venezia

Last minute, aka the night before I left for Ireland, Caya convinced me to meet up with her in Venice after Ireland! I was a little freaked out about planning it so last minute but I couldn’t be happier that we did!

Venice (English), Venise (French), Venezia (Italian), it the city of water, I have no idea why that was not on the top of my list of places to visit in Europe! Thank goodness it was on the top of Caya’s because I love water and to be in a city in which you took public boats  instead of public buses was amazing!

Not only is Venice a gorgeous city but it is in Italy! Thus it has amazing food! Every meal Caya and I split a pizza and pasta dish! It was so good. I wish I could have eaten everything! Then of course there is the amazing Gelato too! I was is heaven in Venice.We stayed in a nice host, had great weather, delicous food, and good company. We spent our two days wondering Venice. We saw most of the tourist sights but also got to discover part of Venice I am sure most visitor miss out on. Caya and I make a great travel team :)

This photo is of Marco Square, one of the most popular sights. However, they have a slight problem with the tides. Especially with the full moon. This was their solution. It worked pretty well. Wish I had brought my rain boots. Although the tide is a bit troublesome it provides an amazing canvas for some great photos!

  1. Hi Renee,
    I just looked at your blog today for the first time. Sorry it took me so long to check it out. It sounds like you are having a wonderful experience in France, and you are doing an awesome job of describing it and keeping us all updated. Who is Caya? I saw her name mentioned a few times but couldn’t find where you first introduced her in your blog. We love you and miss you! We will miss you at Thanksgiving, but look forward to seeing you at Christmastime.
    Love, Aunt Suzanne

    • Hi Aunt Suzanne,
      I am so glad you are enjoying it!
      I just went through my blog and realized I never introduced Caya. She has become my best friend here in Aix.
      Maybe I will have to do a blog about some of my friends and all the people I have met while in Aix.
      Thanks for the idea. I miss you all too and can’t wait to see you at Christmas.
      Happy Thanksgiving!
      Love you all!
