What a dream come true it was to travel to Italy! Although I hope to explore the whole country someday, I could not have been happier to be in Venice Italy for a few short days. Venice is all on water and there are no cars, only boats! I’m telling you this city is straight out of a romantic movie. It was 1:00 am when we hopped off the taxi and met our Air B&B host Antonella, who was amazing by the way. I could not recommend him more! (Link to his Venice apartment here.) There were barely any lights on the streets so we depended on resident house lights and the moon to get to our apartment. So dreamy. I had chills crossing bridges from canal to canal with my suitcase in hand and looking up at the beautiful buildings that surrounded us. This moment specifically I have mentally saved in my brain forever. If I didn’t love my Spanish heritage so much, I would wish to be Italian. I find the culture, people, and food all so charming. Big, loud family parties with endless pasta just sounds so fun to me! We took the water taxi over to Lido island to cool off at the beach one day, and of course wondered all through Venice the rest. The pasta and coke combo was addicting and so it is probably a good thing I don’t live there because thats all I would eat. But I must say that my dad’s pizza is better than the pizza in Venice… If you have tasted Church Street Pizza then you understand! I will cherish these memories and photos until the next time I return to my new favorite country. Ciao!

  1. I first went to Venice with your Grandmother Rose in 1959, Volare was a No. 1 song at the time. Have gone back several times and always love the place. You described your impression beautifully. Auntie Trini
