For my 1st trip overseas to Europe I read and researched like never before.
I, more or less, knew what to expect when I got there and at first it was exactly what I expected.
Prague definitely made me step back and think “OK, this isn’t something you see everyday”.
A whole city on water with no automobiles(and a whole bunch of old people everywhere) pretty much blew me away.
Venice may also be the best city to get “lost” in because you really can’t get too lost.
You can only go so far before you come to a dead end and face nothing but water.
The “city bus” is a Vaporetti and that takes you to places you can’t reach on foot.
I could definitely see this as being a very challenging way of life during huge storms.
It was a treat every time I had to take a Vaporetti somewhere.
I also loved how some of the buildings just seemed to rise right out of the water.
Some peoples kitchen windows were only 2 meters above the water.
I’m sure the flooding there sucks, but it was cool to see from where I was
Embrace the change.
Step back, take it all in and revel in it.
