Last weekend my boyfriend surprised me with a trip to Venice! As you can guess by the title of this post, he is now my fiancé (eeeeeeeeek)! Venice is such a beautiful place which, for us, now holds huge sentimental value. Waking up before sunrise was the best way to see the floating city, which completely transformed at around 9AM when the rest of the world woke up and day trippers flooded the streets! Even with GPS, we got lost so many times- I lost count of how many U-turns we made. But as they say, “you haven’t truly experienced Venice unless you’ve got lost in Venice”! We spent 2 days wandering and gondala-ing through the canals, eating gelato (including a €20 BEAST from the oldest coffee shop in the world, Cafe Florian), and absorbing the romance and charm of this gorgeous corner of the world.
Best. Weekend. Ever.
