A shade of the dramatic, where different is all there is.

Quick Venice Photo BOMB

I currently still have internet access and wanted to drop a quick bomb of photos on all of you from our time in Venice.  I know this isn’t the typical definition of “photo bomb”…but I’ve always been a little weird.

We are boarding our cruise ship tomorrow and will have very limited internet access until we are back in Ottawa middle of January.  So I hope you enjoy these pictures from the few days we spent in Venice, Italy!   Most of them were taken by my ever talented husband.

Hope everyone had a wonderful New Year’s Eve and I’m wishing you all an exciting and prosperous 2013!

Ciao!

    • Thanks Brooke! We are trying our best, but it is super busy here considering this is supposed to be low season! I guess low-season excludes this week over the holidays. It is complete insanity the amount of people here, the same if not more than when I was here in the summer, just nonsense. I wouldn’t recommend coming here this time of year to anyone. 😦

    • We are actually in Rome now and get on our ship tomorrow heading for Greece. But we spent a few days in Venice and were lucky enough to get fantastic weather while we were there! Sunny everyday and very mild weather. Sure beats the hell out of the snow storm we left behind in Canada. 😀

  3. I would love to visit Venice! I will definitely avoid the holidays if I do ever get the chance to go! 🙂 x

    • It is lovely, but very expensive! 2-3 days is all the average person can afford! hehe

      Europe is pretty expensive in general though…I frequented a lot of third world countries in my travels that were really inexpensive. So when I get to Europe and everything costs SO much, I have a hard time rationalizing it all. Yet, this is my third time here and probably not my last. So much to see, so little time. 😉

      • I can imagine! I went to Milan a few years ago and wow that was expensive! Hence we stayed for 3 days before going to the Amalfi coast for our holidays! 🙂
        Always the way with these beautiful cities trying to get around and see everything in the time you have!
        I would love to see more of the world very jealous of you travelling around over there! 🙂 x

        • Hehe, I hadn’t been out of the country in nearly 3 years, so I was overdue! Definitely looking forward to the rest of the trip!

        • Aww good for you hun! Enjoy it! Hope the rest of your trip is amazing! 😀 x

        • Thanks Brooke, you are so sweet! Looking forward to getting all caught up with your blog once we are back. 🙂

          January 1, 2013 at 5:29 pm

        • Your Welcome! Yay! 😀 x

        • And I’ve never been to Milan, but I imagine the prices are just as outrageous as the rest of Italy. We will need to do some serious bank account recovery once we are back in Canada! lol

  4. It looks like a fantastic journey!

    • Been fun so far. The ship is so amazing!!!! You almost don’t want to leave to visit the port cities. But of course, you can’t miss out on the sites. At this rate we should have a bazillion pictures when we get back. Hope all is well with you!

  5. ooooooo this looks beautiful!!!! Have fun can’t wait to see more pics ❤

    • Thanks Amanda! We have wi-fi on one of our shuttle buses, which is awesome because the internet on the cruise ship is ridiculously expensive and slow from what we’ve heard. You will have to wait for more pictures though, because I don’t have my camera cable with me atm. Hope you had a wonderful New Years!
