It’s been a bit over nine years since I first visited Europe. That trip had a lot of firsts for me. It was my first time travelling solo (London for a few days). It was my first time going outside North America. This trip was also the first time on a group tour. We visited ten countries in 11 days. I was very excited about this trip.
Turns out that it’s exhausting to visit 11 countries in 10 days. I only got a small taste of the places I visited. One city I’d love to go back to is Venice, Italy. To be honest, before this trip Venice wasn’t high on my must-see list. I had nothing against this iconic city, but other cities were higher on my radar.
When I got to Venice, I found it fascinating. The canals, the winding streets, the grand architecture. It felt a bit surreal and magical (the prosecco I drank might have played a part in this as well). Aside from that gondola ride, and wandering around I didn’t have time for much else. The next day we were on our bus going to Switzerland.
I wish I could tell you I have a trip booked for Venice, but I don’t. What I do know is that it’s a city I want to spend more than a few hours seeing. At some point, I’ll go back here and explore elsewhere in Italy as well.
