|Burano, third and last island we visited|
My first experience exploring another country..
Though it was only one city, it was still awesome :D
We experienced an earthquake the first night which I didn't notice much more than "We're in Venezia, we're surrounded by sea, of course the house is moving" and slept on. But found out the news the next day. Because we only felt the aftershocks from far away, nothing really happened in Venezia itself. So we could explore safely.
We've visited old churches, streets and musea.. A lot of restaurants and the islands Murano, Burano and Torcello. I wanted to get away from the tourists passage so we could see the real Venezia. When we got lost it was the perfect oppertunity to find out. What we saw was the regular working life on boats, you really wouldn't miss a car here. Everything is easy to reach on foot or boat so we didn't notice the absence of a car those four days.
We kind of noticed the local people of Venezia aren't that friendly towards each other, in the city gondolars didn't greet each other, I could understand if concurrency only but outside of the city this was the same story. They didn't smile much and ignore anyones absence. When my sister asked the vendour of a maskshop if he himself made all the masks he irritatedly sarcasticly answerred "No I just pretend I do." as he was painting a mask. Also did we get sent away from restaurants often when we just wanted to drink instead of having a meal. So all- by- all, quite strange.
However, it didn't take away the fun of getting lost in the thight streets, experience another, old, world and culture, eating real italian pasta, icecream and pizza and enjoying the great weather...
Now I'm just hungry for more sightseeing in this beautiful world.. It has so much to offer!
I can't wait till the next trip!
