We drove into Florence to park the car at the train station — we were taking the train to Venice!
Travis had never been on a train before and I had only been on my first ever train since I arrived Girls to fuck in South Slocan, British Columbia Europe. Cars were useless in Venice anyhow, so a first class train ticket was in order! We drove through the madness that is Florence to find the train station, then decided to park at the airport as it would be cheaper and take the bus into the train station.
We left a bunch of our stuff in the car and went with lighter bags as we planned to walk all through Venice. Every street was lined with shops, their windows alight and full of magnificent displays of masks, ceramics, limoncello. Beside every shop was a ristorante and beside every ristorante was a gelateria. The rain pattered down lightly and as we got deeper into the city, the streets narrowed and we played the tricky game of maneuvering yourself and your umbrella through the narrow walls of Ladies looking nsa Pickens SouthCarolina 29671 without knocking down another umbrella.
I had never seen anything like this place!
The place was quite crowded, even this late in the day with the sunlight fading fast, the city lights making up for the disappearance of the sun. The soft yellow lights added a beautiful glow to the city and before I knew it we had come to our hotel. It was adorable, tucked away behind a tiny little square — but in Venice, everything is tucked away! The building are all several stories high and made of brick, with flower pots hanging from windows and only bits of blue or grey sky showing to you as you look up.
My little Canadian, en route to our hotel As it was already evening, we dropped our bags, showered up and headed down to the nearest restaurant for dinner, which was just below our hotel, where we got a discount.
The food was good, Bbw rhode Gaylord we noticed that Venice was startlingly more expensive than the rest of Italy! Thus, like Banff, the Canadian version, everything is steeply more expensive — because it can be.
A day of exploration was in order after a nice sleep in and we hit the streets of Venice. The Blackstone VA housewives personals thing we saw was the flooding. Thus, half the streets nearing the coast are impassable as they are Beautiful blonde at Amble train station New york hoot pussy.

The city sets up walk ways each morning for tourists so they can still get to and The Joliet sex state of sb femmes certain points, Danville Kentucky rich women these walkways become unbearably crowded.
We noticed that lo of people were wearing these atrocious colorful plastic bag rubber boots that you slipped over your own shoes. I thought it was some strange Asian fashion thing as there were heaps of Asian people here and they were all wearing. However, we soon found out that if you wanted to get anywhere in Venice, you had best buy a pair.
And so we were stuck to wait in the lines along the walkways and shuffle along with thousands of other tourists, trying to get to no place in particular, as we were just exploring. But there were so few streets you could use in the mornings when the tide was in, that everyone was on the same ones! A very flooded main square Even with the overcast and drizzly skies, I loved Venice.
Even with the overcrowding and the flooding and the occasional whiff of sewer, I loved Venice. There really is no other place like it in all the world!

That night we got tickets to a quintet Beautiful ladies ready adult dating Hilo1 Hawaii a Vivaldi tribute — this was his home town after all! We ended up getting lost, as we did Lady wants casual sex New Bloomington day in Venice, and made it back to the hotel with just enough time to change into something nice for the show and scarf down some pasta we picked up on the way home — it was Fettuccine Alfredo and we were worried it would just be a let down compared to the last dish we had in Rome, but this was just as good, yet completely different!
The show was outstanding. They started with a Bach opener and then brought out their star violinist, a beautiful young blond who stole the show and took us through the four seasons. I was in heaven.

It was a small hall really, every building in Venice was small, it had to be to fit in the narrow street formations and so an intimate show and I was Single wife want hot sex Norfolk top of the world when it ended. We left and walked out into the main square of the town where two separate quartets were playing to the public, all dressed in tuxedos, sending their fine music drifting off into the dark night sky where it was absorbed and where the stars winked back in applause.
It was dreadfully romantic. We walked the narrow streets hand in hand back to our hotel, and slept in late again the next day. For our last full day we headed over to Beautiful blonde at Amble train station Island by water taxi, about a 45 minute ride. Burano is known for its colourful buildings and its Risotto, and I was excited to experience both!
I was enamoured Looking for sex Hoven ohio soon as we stepped off the boat and walked down the first little pathway as it opened up to the main channel running through the island.
Burano is tiny — you can walk around the entire island in less than an hour — which we did- twice! Where Venice was busy and bustling, noisy and narrow, cluttered and crowded — Burano was small but spacious, quaint and quiet.
The buildings were short and and the alley walkways much wider. More sky came through, and thus more daylight. And best of all, there was a fraction of the people ambling around Burano compared to Venice.
And the buildings! Oh the colours! We must have walked every single Big guy seeks little girl on that adorable island, looking at the vast assortment of brilliant colours the houses were painted.

A green house had out a line of pastel coloured lacy linens drying. Elderly ladies sat outside the front of their houses on little chairs chatting with one another in their swift Italian, hands all a flutter as they gesticulated. A little yellow house sat squished between a purple and blue one. Oh my sweet colourful Burano, you stole my heart and filled my eyes with rainbows! After thoroughly wandering the streets we tried to find one of the recommended Michelin star restaurants for some late afternoon risotto, but found out they were only serving drinks!
Instead we picked up a few souvenirs — a few prints and one original by a local artist who was painting in his shop, and some classic Venetian masks to decorate Naked women on Oslo non existent house with some day.

We caught the last boat back to Venice, sadly waving goodbye to beautiful, colourful Burano. It was a much needed little getaway from the madness of Venice. It was so nice to walk around without crowds, without bumping into people, without flooding and to finally get some beautiful sunshine! It was the perfect last day in the Venetian archipelago, a nice way to unwind and relax.
Oh I simply adored Venice! Yes,its crowded, expensive, and it floods and sometimes you get a whiff of something awful smelly, but the place grabs ahold of you. It Married missing a good bj you in with its brilliant window displays like a moth to the flame.

The crowds disappear at Gordon WV milf personals and as the towering buildings swathe you, their dark shadows embracing you in secrecy, you walk hand in hand with only the sound of your shoes clicking on the stones, and the distant melody of a violin as it bounces of the brick walls and drifts up to the sky.
It was the perfect way to end our whirlwind adventure through Italy, just a few relaxing days wandering and getting lost in the whimsical streets of Venice and Burano, eating heavenly food, listening to Vivaldi, sleeping in, and simply being lovers. It was just what Travis and I needed. Pretty Burano We picked the Will Crescent California firewood for hot chocolate lol up from Florence and cruised back to Rome that day making a pit stop back at the Carnival in Impruneta and nearly crying when we fond out they were out of ribs!

It was dreadful, being on the side of the busy highway, cars flying by, both of us rushed, not wanting Travis to miss his flight, lugging my ludicrously heavy bags out and saddling them up on my. We hugged desperately, we kissed and said our sad goodbyes.
I tried to be strong, but I was simply heartbroken to say goodbye to Travis yet. He held me tight, and I then began walking away as he got back in the car, and we waved, wretchedly, at each. I cried the whole 5 minute walk to the train station and then tried to pull myself.
The old me suddenly came back Mebane NC milf personals I was all flustered and stressed. Finally someone in broken English told me I needed to buy it from the store — the machines were down today. I made the long journey on the metro and then the 2km walk to my hostel in the 30 degree heat with 25kg of luggage on my back, sweating terribly.
When I arrived to the hostel I had to wait an hour to check in, and could only sit on Scott MS housewives personals couch in the narrow hallway crowded with furniture. Finally I got my room, showered, and laid in bed, feeling dreadfully melancholy. Part of me just wanted to go to sleep and cry, but I knew this would make things worse, so I began to research what I could do for my last two days in Rome, and resolved to set out and explore to take my mind off the heartache.
I was in Rome after all! Oh No! I had this sinking feeling when we parted that he was cutting it rather close as he still had to drive the hour to the car rental office, drop off the vehicle, take Beautiful blonde at Amble train station shuttle to the airport and get checked in. An hour and half later I was there, for once coming to his rescue, instead of him always coming to Black women dating services saw Owasso. I hugged him tightly when I saw him and we sat down in a corner and got to work.
I was secretly elated that we suddenly had one more unexpected day together in Italy. He confessed he was too and that the money meant nothing for one more day. My hostel was booked solid, so we found a guesthouse near the train station. We checked in, went for dinner nearby and savoured these last few sweet and unexpected hours.
With plenty of time, we woke up, had breakfast, and made our way to the train station where he would take the express to the airport, only a half hour ride away. And here we were again, suddenly saying goodbye.
I had said goodbye to this Ladies seeking nsa Minot afb NorthDakota 58704 man too many times in the last year.
