here’s the last bit of our trip to italy from november, all thanks to my lost sim card which we found last week. what a joyous day!
so, venice! i was surprised at how much i loved our time in venice. mostly because josh has been before and wasn’t the biggest fan… also because most people we know suggested we skip it or spend just one day there tops. but we ended up spending a few days there, and i had a lot of fun! maybe it’s because the italian job is one of my favorite movies ever. so i was just giddy the entire time we rode around on the canals. the first afternoon we were there, we went on one of those ridiculously over-priced gondola rides, and while it was far from romantic and more chaotic than anything (which is to be expected with a toddler who does not want to stay seated and would rather lean over the gondola to play with the water), it was such a fun experience and for me, was the icing on the cake to our adventures in italy!
*for those who asked about how we managed to fit everything for 2 weeks abroad into 2 carry-ons, i updated my post on traveling abroad with littles and included that info at the bottom! hope it is helpful!
