Carnevale di Venezia
Our stay in Venice couldn't have been at a better time since it just so happened that our stay there fell right during the heart of Carnevale di Venezia! It added so much to our experience there to see all the people dressed up in their costumes, everyone in a mask, and the city was just so alive. The only part of it all was on this one day where the madness in St. Mark's Square was so insane and the crowd so large that you literally could not walk. I let me body just kind of go limp and then eventually the crowd sort of moves as one and you end up on the other side...and then stuck again for over half hour since the walkways are so narrow! But all in all, it was such a fun experience. And yay for some sun and Venetian masks that made for the best keepsake.
