Venice is the most romantic place I've ever been. Last year I had the opportunity to visit during Carnival, which was especially fun!
A couple of my friends and I took a weekend trip stayed in the most beautiful home. Bruce, our cheerful and welcoming host, greeted us at the train station fully decked out in costume for Carnival. His wife even made fresh fruitcake for us to enjoy.
We spent the weekend wandering aimlessly along the streets, eating homemade pasta, throwing confetti around, enjoying happy hour at a cute little wine bar. I love being spontaneous when I travel. We found so many hidden gems in Venice, like the beautiful outdoor bookstore pictured above.
Saturday morning, we planned to visit Murano to watch some glass blowing artisans and shop in the little glass boutiques. It was freezing and raining, but we braved the weather and took the ferry over to the island. Even in the rain, Murano was gorgeous.
By nighttime, the weather cleared up, so we celebrated with confetti... and dessert. (I had a pink meringue!)
Such a perfect weekend. Arrivederci, Venice! Until next time.
Hi! Welcome to my blog. Whether you stumbled upon this page through your friend’s friend’s Instagram or you’ve been following for a while, I’m glad you’re here. Thanks for stopping by and letting me share my life with you.
I write mostly about the places I visit and the people I meet. I love to write for the same reason I love to travel: because it teaches me a new way of seeing the world.
Other things I love: thrift shopping, sustainable fashion, big sunglasses, deep conversation, a good book, digital marketing, messy hair, planes, poetry, hot tea + long distance running.
This blog is about saying yes to the things that make you feel alive. It’s about rolling with the punches and embracing uncertainty because not everything will be smooth sailing. A life of adventure is full of challenges but I think it's worth it. Here's to saying yes to adventure, whatever that looks like for you.
Thank you so much for reading and experiencing this journey with me! :)
