"Who's out there?"
My husband and I were lucky enough to visit beautiful Venice in May as I had put it on my must-see list when we were planning our trip. I was looking forward to getting to see first-hand the touristy things I associated with Venice: the Grand Canal, gondolas, St. Mark's Square. Soon after we arrived, though, my husband and I ditched our map and pre-planned agenda and just wandered the winding streets, which I think is the best way to see this amazing city. We never knew what we'd find around the next corner.
At one point I noticed this woman taking in the view from her upstairs apartment. I had to wonder how long she had lived in this beautiful city and all the things she had seen from this window during her lifetime. My husband and I spent an entire day exploring every last corner of labyrinthian Venice, and I was in awe of just how much beauty the city's most mundane objects had. Venice is a must-see on any trip to Italy!
