In the haste to conserve my Schengen visa days, I spent about 20 hours in this beautiful city. Venice has been the most beautiful so far. So beautiful, it sucks to visit on your own. The one true place that I wish I could share it with someone. Oh well. One day, I will return :)
In regards to photographs, I had the unfortunate opportunity to visit when it was cloudy, so the photographs were nothing phenomenal. My sincerest apologies in advance, and wish I could have captured Venice's true essence and beauty. Another major struggle was attempting to take photographs that aren't stereotypical, so I would pass up beautiful opportunities for the sake of a cliche. Problems of travel fatigue. Live and learn. Next time.
