We made it home from our European adventures although I am a few days without sleep and definitely suffering from the jet lag. All worth it.
I’ll post my travel notes over the next week or so. In the meantime, here are a few shots from our first day in Venice. Click on any of the photos for a larger image.
There are really only two ways to navigate Venice: by foot or by water. We took a water taxi to our hotel and it followed a path along the Grand Canal. The water taxi looked similar to the one in the photo above.
As you might expect, there are many, many gondolas traversing the various waterways of Venice. And many other types of boats. The waterways are remarkably busy during the day.
We stayed at the beautiful Centurion Palace hotel in Venice. We had a room that overlooked the Grand Canal. Here is a shot of the hotel courtyard.
And a few shots of Lorraine and Matthew at the hotel.
Venice offers extensive shopping. The stores range from basic tourist traps to the very high end.
And a few classic photographs of the Venice experience.
