Carnevale di Venezia

A day I will never forget was my trip to Venice, Italy. Starting off as a spontaneous adventure, this 8-hour day turned out to be full of surprises. Being built on the islands of the marshy lagoons on the Adriatic Sea, the stone buildings seemingly rise out of the water. With no cars or roads, canals and boats were our only mode of transportation, which in turn was an adventure in itself. We wondered aimlessly throughout the city, filled with innumerable narrow, mazelike alleys and small squares. In the end, we found that we got lost in all the right places. Sometimes being lost isn’t a bad thing, for we wouldn’t have discovered the treasures that awaited us.
