Yesterday we gave you some Venice hotspots. & today… just a mini recap.

You know the trip was a birthday surprise.

Like I ACTUALLY, LEGIT did not know where we were going. Maybe I played my music & diverted my eyes to keep the whole surprise thing going but really I had no idea until we were sipping champagne mid-air & they announced VENICE.

Venice is one of the most romantic places on the planet!

I LOVE IT.

AND I LOVE PASTA.

…AND CHEESE.

……..AND BRUNELLO.

& WELL, ALL ITALIAN FOOD.

Can you blame me?

Basically the trip was spent eating, relaxing, listening to Bossanova, enjoying my birthday, & we definitely turned on the whole romance card.

Michael put such thought into each detail & every little thing was very, very special. My favorite part of the trip was going to Ernest Hemingway’s ‘island’ to enjoy some lobster & chilled Pinot Grigio. Just an overall ideal day. Italians do it right, man. Plus there’s so much bread… sure do love bread.

Venice is so colorful, cute, & sweet. A must-see when you guys go to Italy! Has anyone been? How charming, right?

Three days in Venice was just enough & then we jumped on the train to Florence ( again, didn’t know where we were going ).

I’ll give you a Florence recap x itinerary next week. Promise.

In other news, I have nothing fun for you today. Basically we’ve been nose to the grindstone since our Italian return. Work, work, work. Which is fine. I prefer to bust ass, relax, bust ass, relax rather than half ass the bust ass part & the relax part, you know? So currently it’s 1:15 AM & definitely time to wind down the day. Super early day tomorrow.

    Hey Lauryn! LOVE the Venice recap! I was there for one of the stops on my honeymoon so you’ve got me feeling all the nostalgia!
    Also, I wanted to add that I am an android user and I have been able to listen to the podcast for free ever since you first started podcasting. I was able to get episode one the day it released on Podcast Republic. It’s a free app for android users. Just thought your readers might be interested in another app that I really like.

    Hi Lauryn! This post is really nice as your blog! I am happy that you like Italy, my country! Next time you should definetely go to Naples, the food (especially pizza and spaghetti) is amazing and I am sure you ‘ll love the city! Plus you can stop to Capri and Ischia islands and do a tour of the Amalfi coast which are one of the best places to visit in The south of Italy;) xx Raffy
