Nice write up of a family’s Venice adventure–organized such that the photos share the narrative. If this doesn’t make you want to wander the streets of Venice, nothing will!
This morning, while the girls were sleeping, I woke up early to write the blog and then went out into the little streets of our neighborhood in search of a cafe. It was nice to see locals going to work and shop owners starting to open shop. The tourists will descend later on in the morning, but not quite yet. Obviously, I realize that we are tourists, and there is nothing bad about tourists. But we live in New York City where we are bombarded by 56 million tourists a year. So when we go anywhere on vacation, we try to stay in uncrowded places. Last year, we found the perfect apartment in Paris and I think we’ve been really lucky so far in Italy. Venice is super crowded, but our little apartment is in a fairly un-touristy area, so we are happy.
