I know I overdid it with the pictures but I couldn’t help myself! I took a boat to Burano from the main island,Venice, right as the sun was setting so I was almost out of light when I got there! This actually worked out well because as you can see there’s no tourists! I was basically alone and everything on the island closes after sun down so I walked around, took pictures, and raced to get on the very last water taxi of the night back to the main island.
One cool thing about these pictures is the sky looks almost white! I haven’t posted my Venice pictures yet but if you ever make it to Venice, you have to eat at Taverna al remer. When I travel, I’m all about finding a new restaurant every day but I loved this place, the atmosphere, the live music so much I went twice. It was one of my favorite dining experiences. The last night I was in Venice, I walked across a good bit of the island getting lost on purpose (which isn’t hard with their streets) and got to the restaurant later than I planned to. They insisted on making me dinner even though the kitchen was closed and wouldn’t let me pay. They are seriously the sweetest people & it’s a great mix of locals with a few tourists sprinkled in who were lucky enough to find it.
Another favorite dining experience was a cooking class I took in Rome. We made pasta from scratch, tiramisu, and many other things I will probably never make again unless I have 5 people helping me. haha. Chef Andrea will always remember me because someone stepped on my foot in the kitchen and somehow my sandal just completely fell apart. He had to wrap duct tape around my foot so I could walk home! haha (I can’t even make this stuff up) 🙂 There was also a black out while I was cooking which they said is normal in such older cities. Cooking by candle light was actually a really fun memory.
