This is one of the sailboats outside of our hotel. On our way from the airport I saw this and finally made use of my wide angle lens. I was able to fit almost the entire sail into the picture.

This was one of the first monuments I saw on our boat ride to Venice from the airport. As you can see the buildings are just what you would expect in Venice. The churches are all amazing from what I’ve seen so far. You will see more soon.

Water Highway

One of the first things we encountered after getting out of the airport was the shuttle to Venice and the water highway.  Anything you find with cars in a normal city, they have with boats in Venice. The highway was a two lane strip outlined by these pillars. Boats would pass each other and go […]
