We stepped out onto our Venetian balcony for the first time, looked down and gasped. The water was crystal and a gondala driver passing beneath us yelled up for us to jump in. It was such a beautiful city and was our place to kick back and relax for a few days in an amazing 16th century castle.

t’s taken us 7 days in Italy but we’ve finally mastered prego, scusi,
 grazia (& gratzie), quanta costa and aqua. The streets of Venice ended up being so easy to navigate and we felt like locals by the time we reluctantly left.
