Of Narrow Alleyways and Gondolas

Boats Docking at the Grand Canal
Venice, oh Venice!

You were everything I thought it would be. Coming up right after Paris, I was so afraid that we would have higher expections than usual.

But, truly, you did have a charm. Too much, in fact!

We loved walking through the little laneways, discovering every little nook. There's always a surprise at every corner. I always wonder where the alleyway was going to bring me to.

We saw the most beautiful sunsets at the Rialto bridge. It was incredibly spectacular and such a sight to behold. One can only feel quite privileged to be there once in a life time.

Every morning, we would wake up to the view of a busy Grand Canal. Where island hopping is just a doorstep away at the convenience of a water taxi. We loved standing at the balcony and soaking all of these in . It's truly a sight like no other.

Hanging at St Marco
Best of all, I got to do it with the one I love the most! =) Life is good!
