Venice!

So we went to Venice this weekend, beautiful!
We took the train there! I love traveling by train. i love it, love it. We reserved little rooms and at night we pulled down beds and got to sleep. Ok, so my bed was a little short and I had to sleep diagonally... i don't care. I LOVE TRAINS.
Anyways our group didn't have any plans on wednesday, or any day for that matter, we got to run free all weekend. The first day i spent just wandering the streets with some of the other girls, we ended up at what used to be the Jewish Ghetto in Venice. It was the first in Europe, it was sad but now its is a really thriving jewish community which is cool. The streets of Venice are so cool, i felt like we didn't run out of things to be fascinated by, but our feet got real tired.



After our wanderings we took the boat-bus all the way from the top of the grand canal to St. Marks square. It was so pretty at night, I had fun trying to take pictures of it.

the next day me and rachel and J. Lo headed out to the islands that surround venice. We went to Torcello first. It is the oldest inhabited island, but it isn't that inhabited any longer. We went there for a very specific purpose though... We sat on Attila's throne. Ya, the Attila...

anyways... the deal with the throne is that if you sit in it you are supposed to be married within the year. So my mom will be excited about that one!
It took quite a while to get around to all the islands but we also visited the island of borrano and mezzerbo. All the houses on these islands were so colorful, I took a ton of pictures. these are my favorites.




Venice was good to me. All of it, even the gelatto.

why does every post end with food?

Karly, darling. This blog depresses me. I miss Venice. I especially miss gelatto. But next time you get to take a trip, go to Innsbruk. That's the part of Austria I saw this summer. It's just cute. But you have to go to "old town". I miss you girly, but I'm glad you're having fun!!!! Lots of lovin...
