Love in Venice

Told you I'd be back.

Venice was, of course, magical.

There are so many things I love about this city (this wasn't my first time there, but it was the first time I went with David, and being a very romantic city, it was truly unforgettable to explore it with him), such as the total absence of cars, the breathtaking views and this special atmosphere that never really leaves the city. It's special.

We didn't get a map, and the only museums and art galleries we set foot in were the ones that we just happened to stumble across. The rest of the time, we just wandered aimlessly around the city, taking in the magical visuals, the Christmas spirit, and the amazingness that is this city.


Here are some highlights:
































...and, well, there's one more thing I have to tell you...

After having walked all around the city all Wednesday afternoon, we finally arrived in Piazza San Marco, tired but happy and amazed at all the marvels of the city. After having taken about two million pictures and admired the beauty of it all, we stopped in front of this tiny shop. 

Which just happened to be a ring shop.

It gets kind of blurry from there, but I can recall the sunset, the water, the cathedral, the cold air, my messy hair. David stumbling, getting a bit nervous. 

And here we are.








...engaged.
