Venice, Italy!

Our Next stop on our amazing trip was Venice, Italy! This has always been one of the places that I have wanted to travel to at some point in my life, and it lived up to the expectations. There isn't very many "big attractions" in Venice. There is San Marco Piazza and the Realto Bridge, but it's true beauty is just in the small canals that run through the island and the amazing views that you can find from seemingly anywhere in the city. 

Our view out of our window! Pretty sweet right?!

How crazy is this? Huge ship cruising through the water.

Our first day, we decided to just cruise around, wherever our feet could take us. We had quite the long trip that morning so we took a very long nap in the afternoon. Rejuvenated after some rest we got to finally see some of the amazing city!

Thats right, Venice.

Saint Mark's Basilica

Dogge's Palace

There are just a ton of awesome views like this, you just have to find them!


Realto Bridge

View from Realto Bridge, absolutely gorgeous.

Awwwww, so cute haha

Awesome little pathways and canals through the whole island.

Realto at night.

There were several bands getting after it in Saint Mark's square in front of different restaurants. Tons of people gathered around to clap them on which was pretty fun to watch!

Our view from the café below our room. We got some free wifi and a sweet view as well.

Lido beach, we took a boat to the island and then we rented some bikes for the day and rode to the beach!

Classic italian dinner, at least for us!

One of the nights we had our own fireworks show, sitting on the edge of the water!

  1. Awesome photos Boehme! You are one awesome dude and QB. My wife and I first got to see you play at Hardin-Simmons your junior year. I was living in Austin and we made the trip up to see ya'll kick some butt. My wife cried when you got hurt but I told her you would come back and kill it. Sure enough.
