It’s been a bit over nine years since I first visited Europe. It was a lot of firsts for me. This trip was my first time traveling solo (in London for a few days). It was my first time going outside North America. I’d only traveled in Canada and to the US before. This trip was also the first time on a group tour. We visited ten countries in 11 days. I was very excited for this trip.
It turns out that it’s exhausting to visit 11 countries in 10 days. I only got a small taste of the places I went to, and one city I’d love to go back, and visit is Venice, Italy. To be honest, this city wasn’t high on my must-see list. There was nothing against Venice, but there were other cities that were more on my radar. When I got to Venice, I found it fascinating. The canals, the winding streets, the grand architecture. It felt a bit surreal and magical (the prosecco I drank might have played a part in this as well). Aside from that gondola ride, and wandering around I didn’t have time for much else in Venice. The next day we were on our bus going to Switzerland.
I wish I could tell you I have a trip booked for Venice, but I don’t. What I do know is that it’s is a city I want to spend more than a few hours seeing. At some point, I’ll go back to Venice, and explore elsewhere in Italy as well.
Is there anywhere you’d like to go back and visit for longer?
