I'm 10 now!!!
By: A Today I turned 10 in Venice! How cool is that? We had a two hour tour and it was really cool to walk around the plaza and see all the churches, palaces, shops, restaurants, and many more. During the tour, we went to look at a couple of cool places like Marco Polo's house, the Royal Gardens, the Rialto Bridge, the San Marco Square, the prisons of the Doge's Palace, and more, as well. When we were walking around Venice, we had to walk through these narrow passageways, alleys, and on the shore of many canals where we got to see a funeral boat. After our walking tour was over, we had about 3 hours and 30 minutes to enjoy free time to eat lunch and to shop in the plaza before we started the water taxi part of the tour. While we were shopping, K and I got these really cute Mardi Gras masks that we can hang on the wall or put on a refrigerator. For lunch we had pasta and for dessert we had gelato. When we were eating our dessert, it started pouring rain on us! The worst part was that to get back to the Royal Gardens (where we had to meet our guide for the water taxi tour) you had to walk around the whole entire plaza which seems like a mile! I was wrong, it gets worse: while we where on the way back, we sort of got lost! So basically, it took about an hour to find our way back on track and to walk back to the Royal Garden. After that, we got on a water taxi to get back to the bus stop so we could get to our hotel. Before we got on the bus, we stopped by a cafè to get our dinner so we could eat it in our hotel room. Mommy said we can get a slice of cake or something tomorrow in Rome. Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you, tomorrow we have to get on a train to go to Rome. I can't wait to get to my dream city!
