Day 5(last day) in Firenze.... a visit to Venezia!!

I barely keep up our travel speed w/ my journal n' blogging at the same time in between cities in Italy.... and I barely have the strength to keep my eyelid open as I am typing right now. lol  But memory is the freshest and will be kept the longest if I "capture" them at this very moment, thus, I stayed up!! 


Today we drive ourselves to Venezia and again, it is quite a challenge. As you see, trucks, tunnels, fogs especially on the way when we entered Bologna. Apple I-pad is the best navigator but we have to download the map first and let it cached to be able to navigate us later on when we need it!!!

The same way to Milano and to Venezia.... until it splits!

We probably past 10 tunnels on our way to Venezia.

The fog and trucks are very persistent all the way till we passed Bologna!

 Finally ~ yeah~ after we drive through this big "river??", yet another totally different vibe of city in Italy--Venezia!


Venezia: A city w/o cars driving through between the alley, a city limits its air pollution to the minimum, and a city that I have never been to until today!


DH and I were talking about how different this Italy trip to us compared to our Paris trip in 2008. By then, we have our parents' help and we stayed 9 days in Pairs only in the apartment in St. German. That was quite a relaxed vacation for 7 of us. This London and Italy trip, however, is more like an adventure and quite an amazing experience for my 3 kids too.

The only transportation goes into Venezia and in between its alley is by boat and gondolas.

DH bought a down vest from GAS - an Italy brand, made in Italy (not their jeans though).

Today we are taking EuroStar to Milano, where everyone can enjoy a palpable sense of fashion. Before we head down for our breakfast buffet in Westin Excelsior, I took last picture outside our hotel room to capture this very moment!! We don't know when will we be back but surely I always can mesmerize all the places through our photos.

Doesn't this back drop looks like a painting to you!!?

Photobucket
I think my Chanel cruise 2011 brooch is a perfect match w/ my TOPSHOP beaded shorts!



Photobucket
On me, RL camel turtleneck, Topshop beaded shorts, black tights, GAP vintage 05' felt hat, Ethic moss/taupe leather w/ shearling boots, Chanel 10A marron tote (not show), Chanel 11' cruise pearls, floral applique brooch.



Gotta run again~~

See you in Milano!!
