I drew the most joy from Venice during my early morning runs. Passing by rows of sleeping gondolas while hearing the San Marco Campanile chime made me feel like I had the whole city to myself. This place starts its daily hustle fairly early bringing in boat loads of visitors from every corner. While Venice is clearly a huge tourist trap, it is definitely one worth experiencing.
Thank you for reliving all 4 parts of this adventure with Kinjal and me! I did make a conscious effort on this trip to disassociate myself from the camera and truly enjoy the moment. I also gave myself no guilt in my carb cravings or gelato binges. It was hard to let go of old habits at first- but then it became so freeing. L’amore tutto intorno!
