Venice...the Grand Canal

After several days in charming Orvieto, Mike and Dani and I headed off by train for Venice…the land of, well, no land! It was amazing. The moment we exited the train station, we could tell that we weren’t in Kansas anymore, if you know what I mean.

No cars. No bikes. No skateboards. Nothing with wheels. There were ferry boats, taxi boats, garbage boats, police boats, and gelato boats.

Our first order of business was to take a ferry up the Grand Canal to the region where our hotel was located, which was practically at the other end of the canal. What an experience that was! I couldn't stop snapping pictures, even though I knew most of them would be junk with all the movement. But I just had to remember the sights!
