Venice travel

Travelling to Venice had been on my bucket list for the longest time. So when my mum asked where I’d like to go for our “girls only family trip” I didn’t waste time in screaming VENICE! I had seen so many wonderful images of the city on water that I wanted to see and experience it for myself.

Weeks later, we booked the trip for her, myself and my younger sister; and I was super excited. Unfortunately, my mum was no longer able to travel when the time came for the trip and my sister didn’t want to travel without her, so I called my good friend Yemi and what was meant to be a family trip became a girls trip.

We spent about four days in Venice which was enough time to walk around the small island and visit neighbouring islands like Lido, Murano and Burano. Venice was what I had imagined and some more. I loved that we could walk around or take a water ferry as a means of transportation as there are no cars in Venice. The first day alone, we easily walked for about 4 hours taking in the sights and exploring. And just like I felt after visiting Barcelona last year, I believe Venice is one of the most romantic and idyllic cities I’ve been to in Europe so far.

Without saying much more, I want you to enjoy some of the images I took while I was there. If there’s any city in Europe that I’d recommend you travel to for a romantic getaway or an awesome break, Venice is it!
