carnivaleVENICE, ITALY or VENEZIA.

THE FIRST TRIP I TOOK WHILE I WAS LIVING IN EUROPE WAS A DAY TRIP TO VENICE DURING CARNEVALE WHICH IS AN ANNUAL FESTIVAL. WE TOOK THE TRAIN FROM FLORENCE.  THE TRAINS THERE ARE WAY DIFFERENT FROM THE LOOKS INSIDE & OUTSIDE & THE SPEED.580540_10151486406601800_734500540_n426130_10151486405681800_882899731_nTHE SECOND WE STEPPED OUT OF THE TRAIN STATION, YOU ARE IMMEDIATELY STRUCK WITH THE BEAUTY.  THE WATER IS THIS BEAUTIFUL BLUE GREEN.  YOU CAN EITHER TAKE A WATER TAXI OR WALK OVER THE BRIDGE & WALK THROUGH THE MINI STREETS HOPING YOU ARE GOING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. WE DECIDED TO WALK BECAUSE WE WANTED TO EXPLORE. I HAD BEEN HERE BEFORE & I HAVE A PRETTY GOOD MEMORY SO I HAD AN IDEA OF WHICH WAY TO GO(WE HAD NO MAP JUST OUR PHONES)531552_4705718925543_1003503605_nTHE STREETS ARE TINY LITTLE STREETS IF THATS WHAT YOU WOULD EVEN CALL THEM & IF YOU DIDNT KNOW, THERE ARE NO CARS BECAUSE THEY 1. CANT FIT & 2. IT IS SURROUNDED BY WATER SO THERE ARE MANY BRIDGES. AS YOU WALKING, IS IT BEYOND BEAUTIFUL FROM JUST THE SIMPLE BRICK TO THE BRIDGES.IMG_0976IMG_0985IMG_1017BECAUSE IT WAS CARNEVALE PEOPLE DRESS UP & WE WANTED TO JOIN THE FUN SO WE FOUND MASKS ON THE WAY.  MY FAVORITE COLOR IS PURPLE SO OF COURSE I GOT A PURPLE MASK.538255_4705724165674_2071999126_n488006_4705725485707_505944717_nIMG_1001 IMG_1041AFTER WINDING THROUGH THE STREETS WALKING, OVER BRIDGES & STEPS, PASSING MANY SHOPS & SOME PEOPLE DRESSED UP & DOING DIFFERENT THINGS, WE FINALLY FOUND THE SQUARE WE WERE LOOKING FOR, PIAZZA SAN MARCO WHERE SAINT MARKS BASILICA IS.
