New Years in Venice, take 2

So last year we went to Venice for New Years and had a wonderful weekend planned in a suite over looking a canal. I ended up with the flu the first morning and wasn't able to leave the room until we left. So we decided to try it again with our friends Liz and Julio. It was an amazing time and everything went awesome...until the day we left. I started to feel sick again and now I am at home with what seems like bronchitis. I think I may be allergic to Venice :( But I made it through the trip and fell in love with Venice. It is so different from Sicily and has a very unique beauty. I would go for a 3rd time if I had the time!

  1. Too bad you're sick again. :( But I'm glad you got to experience Venice this time and got to go to Murano. Praying you feel better soon! ♥
