Travel Tuesdays #14

...if it's Wednesday, we must be in Venice! Seems like I'm consistently a day late for TT these days. Should I start calling it Wandering Wednesdays instead? Nah...
Venice was one of the many places the Ex-bf and I traveled to. We were there for a week, and honestly 2 days would have been enough to get a good gist of what the Island is all about. It's very pretty and pedestrian-friendly. Every canal or bridge you pass is picture-perfect. The gondolas add to the romance of the city, but be prepared to drop $100 bucks for a short ride, more if you want the Gondolier to sing "That's Amore!" We were lucky in that our trip fell during the yearly Historical Regatta which really was the highlight of the whole week. The Regatta dates back to the second half of the 13th century and many of the locals were wearing historical costumes.
One of my favourite food memories is Insalata Gorgonzola It is quite possible that I had it every day. I think I am now inspired to make this salad on the weekend. Or maybe, it'll have to be tonight as I've just caught myself salivating!

Venice seems lovely but I have heard it can be expensive. You have been to most of the places that I want to see!

I read your last post too - good luck. I hope you ace the interview!

Wow, I am amazed at all the wonderful places you have been to. I always say I want to go here and there...I need to do less wishing and more traveling! Venice would be a great place to start.

(The Gargonzola salad sounds really good to me right now.)

Ooooh Venice. That's definately on my list. I've never been overseas and my friends keep tossing me out when I try to smuggle myself away in their luggage. Completely unfair I say!

Here via Michele today

I loved Venice, but you're right. It's so expensive. We went there after visiting Rome, Florence, Pisa, and Italy (it was our last stop on our trip to Italy) and I wish it had been our first, because we were nearing the end of our budget by that time.

Such a beautiful city, though, and it was nice to escape the Vespas that were everywhere in Rome for a few days!
