Travelling Europe | Losing Myself In Venice

My last stop in Italy was Venice, and if I had to choose my favourite place of the country it would be here.
 
First thing you need to know about Venice is that you are 100% going to get lost, and that is a good thing! It doesn't matter how much you study a map, or try and follow the road street signs (most of which are actually fake), it will happen. I had the most enjoyable time wandering the winding, quirky little streets, popping into the small family owned shops - with no idea at all where I was heading.  Although the streets are packed with people, it didn't feel hectic - I think the tranquil canal running through the city is to thank for that.
 
Of course, as I was in Venice I had to go on a Gondola ride! It was a lovely relaxing way of getting to see a bit more of the place - really comfy too!
