Today is the day! Jenn has completed her final hours of work at the bakery, and we are now able to travel around Europe and have all sorts of fun.
Our first stop is Venice, the city of canals, boats and bridges. The bridges in Venice haven't always been there, and most homes have front doors that open out to the canals. Before the hundreds of bridges were built, the only way to get around town was by boat. Now, the canals are much less crowded, because it's possible to get around on foot.
We arrived in Venice and found it to be beautiful. Even though Venice is an amazing place, it would be a difficult place to live. Tourists seem to outnumber residents by a fair margin, and it would be rather difficult to take care of children when you had to bring them on and off boats all day long to get anywhere.
We bought a public transportation pass (which is almost entirely on boats), and took a boat to our hostel. After checking in and unloading our bags, we took a stroll around town. Pizza and white wine were the fare for the evening and Jenn and I had great fun seeing a small part of Venice today.
