After Greece we went straight to Italy. Venice, Italy, that is.
And oh. my. gosh. I couldn't believe my eyes. I felt like I was in a dream. In fact, I had to actually ask myself, is this real life?
The city on water just had me mesmerized. Absolutely mesmerized!
But when in Italy, you eat GELATO! Aaaand lots of it! Especially when there is a new gelato shop around every corner.
So you can probably guess what we did a lot of in Italy, but oh, was it worth it. It was worth every single euro and calorie. Lol! And then of course it continued on in to Rome. With Gelato shops galore, how could we not? I wanna say we probably stopped at maybe 8 different gelato shops in a span of only 3 days. Yikes!
And yes, it was hard not to think about the calories and sugar, but I just had to remind myself that we were on a trip of a lifetime and that I could easily work it off with all the walking we were doing. When it comes to things like this, sometimes you just gotta enjoy!
As I always like to say, balance and moderation in all things.
Italy, you were a dream, but we barely scratched the surface. So we will definitely be back to experience more of the country and coast next time. But until then, I'll keep dreaming back on this visit..... Xo!
