Water bus passes and new friends

It’s more fun to take the bus in Venice, because it’s actually a boat (called the Vaporetto). Since they’re used by locals and tourists, it can be very crowded (and therefore not always so fun, or even safe for those with mobility issues). But today we got on our first Vaporetto of this trip, and…

We’re going back!

It’s official! We’re going back to our beloved Venice, Italy! And we leave next week!

They choreographed this beautiful piece,…
