This journey begins with a trip to Italy. I will always return to the place I call home (not because I was born in Italia, though I wish this was the case as it would make moving a lot easier). I landed in Rome and traveled all around the country eating everything (naturally) and of course, being a tourist. My favorite place in Italy is Venezia, particularly Murano and Burano. I loved getting lost in the best way while exploring Venezia. I will do an entire blog post on Venezia but if you’re going, I stayed at Splendid Venice near Piazza San Marco. I have stayed at several of their properties and highly recommend them.
