After the wide open roads of the home of Prosecco, we turned in our rental car to switch to a few days of using water taxis, gondolas, and vaporettos to experience the one and only city of Venice. For now, I think the best way to share our photos of this amazing city is just in one big cluster- symbolic of our time there. SO SO many people and SO SO little space!! Everything and everyone was crammed together. So here are just a bunch of random photos we captured walking around the canals along with some of the most interesting cuisine we’ve probably tried thus far in Italy: Parma ham (aged 18 months) with pears and buffalo mozzarella (SO GOOD), spaghetti with cuttlefish ink (not bad but cannot take it in large quantities), sarge in saor (sardines with sultans and pine nuts- phenomenal!), and baccala’ mantecato (stockfish cream- definitely not my favorite!).
Our roots will forever be from here, America, born and raised. Yet, life requires us to move more frequently than we care to count. Whether living stateside or abroad, you can always find us traveling somewhere. We scout out places that you only think you can dream of one day seeing and we seek out those that aren’t found in guidebooks. We then bring them to life here in our travel memos, so hopefully, one day you too can visit them or at least be able to live vicariously through us. This blog isn’t just about crossing off places from a bucket list. It’s about absorbing and learning how other cultures grow and fit into the same world that we do. Life is short and the world is big. Enjoy and get out there!
