European tour – Day 4 – Venice, Italy

We traveled to Venice today and are spending the next two nights here. The room is a very nice space and very comfortable. It is about a minute walk from the ocean.

It was about a 30 minute walk from the train to the hotel, which took us through some shopping districts. Once we were settled in the room, we headed out for some delicious pizzas for lunch. Then we went back to the room to rest a bit. Yes, we napped.

After the nap, we just wandered around the streets and alleys of Venice, did some shopping, and enjoyed the atmosphere. We went back and changed into some pants and then wandered for another couple of hours until we found a nice restaurant on a pier. We enjoyed some mussels and clams, gnocchi, and lemon chicken dishes over a couple of hours at dinner.

It was around 10:30 when we headed back toward the hotel room. There was a storm brewing with lightning and a light sprinkle. Honestly it was a gorgeous evening for the 25 minute walk back. We took some great nighttime pictures with the iPhones.
