Venice

05/25/2015

We woke up in good time today, making sure we weren't rushed as we knew how busy our day was going to be with it being our first non-direct train ride.
The man who we purchased our train tickets from was nice enough to write the connecting trains that we didnt need a ticket for out on a piece of paper for us. It was really helpful. We stopped and got a croissant to take with us for breakfast.
The first train was easy to find, but the second was a bit more difficult as the name on our ticket was different than it was on the screen. We were thankful for the long layover as it gave us a good hour to figure it out. We're definitely never afraid to ask questions! We arrived at 5:00 from the second train, and our third one was supposed to leave at that time as well! We literally ran through the train station trying to find the right gate. Luckily, it was delayed by 15 minutes, so we had time to buy a bottle of water and catch our breathe! The fourth and last train was easy to find and we got on without a problem. I've noticed so far that our tickets haven't been checked once. All you do is walk onto your train and hope you're on the right one! I'd like to know how they don't have people sneaking on.

Something I've noticed since starting in Barcelona is the buildings colours, in Spain they were brown and dark. In France they were a creamy white colour and in arriving in Italy, the buildings are very yellowy.

We got to Venice at about 930pm and immediately went across the street to get pizza. IT WAS AMAZING. Pizza will never taste the same, I swear.

After that we took a taxi to our hotel. We always get so nervous pulling up to our hotels, each time we cross our fingers hoping that it's not too sketchy! But we lucked out again, and it even has breakfast and is close to the metro, wahoo!

We washed our clothes in the bathtub and crawled into bed for the night.
