At long last we reached Italy!! I was so excited to get to Venice - it has been on my must-see list for as long as I can remember. And I absolutely loved it. Such a beautiful city, unsuprisingly. It felt so strange to be that close to the ocean without being at the beach though - that's not how we do it in Oz, that's for sure.
The weathe was unreal while we were in this lovely city, especially the miserableness that followed us for the rest of the trip. We spent our free day island-hopping and gelati-eating. Perfect combo.
