PhotoHunt: Walking - In Venice



After walking around Venice on our eighth day there, Alessandro and I went for a cappuccino at my favorite bar in Italy - Lavena Cafe in Piazza San Marco.

This is my latest entry.

The closest thing to a cappuccino I've gotten is from McCafe at McDonald's up the road from me. ::sigh::

Venice is the best walking city in the world, I believe, so perfect for the theme!

I love walking in Venice. Caffé Lavena is my favorite too - the sunniest place on Piazza San Marco.

It would cool to explore Venice. I have read a bit on it and it sounds wonderful.

First week at school wasn't that bad. A bit hard because of the cast but it was taken of this afternoon.

Could you check my blog please? I have put my 3 minute speech there and would like your opinion. The speech is part of our literacy program. Don't worry. Everyone has been telling me to slow down while speaking.

If you're going to go walking, Venice sounds like a wonderful place to explore.

I would hunt for a place to sit down too if I were to walk around so much in Venice. :)

Looks like a fun place to visit. Great photo.

The thing I hate about walking in Venice is that you have to watch where you step since no one picks up after their dog!

Still it is a wonderful city.

A nice pit stop after a lovely walk!

Mine is up. I hope you have time to check it out.

After a long walk nothing beats having a drink at the cafe to rest those tired legs...for a further journey later on :)
