Friday roundup

grand canalGuess how we are spending the weekend?!
Last night we left Switzerland south bound for Venice, as in Italia!

moxiblog in veniceI was so excited to get photographic proof of my whole family together at once,
I don’t even care that you can’t tell we are in Venice.

Last night, on the drive down we read a children’s version of Romeo and Juliet and stopped in Verona for a few hours to explore, see the Juliet statue and balcony, take a photo just before the iphone (our camera) promptly died and eat pizza & gelato. What fun! Verona is under-rated in my opinion. We walked on a long street paved with marble, and lined with fashionable shops and gelaterias. I wish we had more time to spend, but we had a deadline- off to Venice.

Today we spent the morning with our tour guild (HIGHLY RECOMMEND), and rode in a gondola. In the afternoon, after big bowls of pasta and calamari, we wandered through the market and weaved our way through the tiny streets to finally get back to our hotel. Here are a few sneak peaks and my inspiring links for the week, you will be able to tell whats been on my mind!

Tomorrow we are meeting up with our cruise ship and off to some ports South and East. I’ll update you next week on all the fun and tips for you to enjoy the same holiday too.
