Venice!!!!! Well....... at a glance it was a completely Overwhelming place to visit and didn't really live up to my expectations. Water was a little brown??? The Weather didn't help it was 35 and Humid and we were stuck about 1 hour bus ride from the city on water.

Ok well we arrived here about 6pm and got set up in these little cabins which three people had to share so it was pretty good really they were nice and clean and cheap as dirt. First night we tried the pizza at the Restaurant in the campsite, Italian Pizza Well done.... Very nice i loved it. Then we headed to the night club/bar there and stayed out till 3 am. Woke up next day really early and went for a dip in the Massive pool they had before it got to hot. Ended up stayin around the campsite all day to recover from Lauters and got Massivly Sunburnt sittin by the pool. That night Pizza agian yum yum. And off the bed at a Resonable 2am. Ok so got up at 10am and went into Venice yesterday it was a very hot 1 hour ride on the bus into the city.
We jumped off and had no idea where to go so we just started to trek through the small Canals and ally ways until we reached Another Square then another Square and another Square..... we finally made our way down to the Grand Canal which was really impressive about the size of it and all the boats traveling along it.

Walked around the Big Square in the Middle of Venice and then went looking for a boat ramp to get to the Island of Murano (Glass Island) TO be very honest it was the Highlight off the trip, the Island was so Quite and peaceful, The locals looked happy and people just strolled along like this was the best place on earth.

Back to the Venice again and we searched out the Realto Bridge, Funny cause its named after the Tower in Melboourne Australia and i was thinking i wonder..... hehe! but it was really good there all the Markets on the bridge itself and just down the road was nice to stroll and have a geez at.

We left at about 5pm not experiencing a gondola ride was proboly something i have to do next time, I still am not Quite sure why i didn't go on one maybe because they cost up to 80 euros but thats all fair.

Leaving tommorow for Rome.... 8am get up again but i think ill hit the bar again tonight and do a little bit of Toga!
