Home Is Behind, Venice Ahead

Pippin – whom you’ve seen in this post – and I went to one of the most beautiful cities on this planet: Venice, Italy. It was in March, so the weather was good enough, and the city was almost empty, which was amazing.

It took me a while to get down to doing this post, because I took wayyyy too many pictures and had to sort through them, and then I had to sit down and edit them so that they would fit into this post.

And, I mean, my family might not be the coolest people on this planet, but they’re all right when it comes down to it, and it was a free vacation, in Spain, so why would Frodo say no? (I may or may not have bullied her into coming with me. But she’s never been to Barcelona, and we wanted to go but hadn’t found the time or money to do it, and now we had both, so I don’t feel particularly guilty).

Anyway, here’s the post about it. It’s mostly pictures, of course, because, let’s face it, we’re not exactly adventurous, and usually play it safe with planning ahead and whatnot.
