Beautiful Venice

Is Venice, Italy on your bucket list? Venice was at the top of my bucket list when we went in 2009 and after going I added going back to Venice onto my bucket list. Go figure. It’s just like Hawaii for me. I was still new to travel blogging when we went and I posted very little on our trip to Venice. Tonight on a www.TravelingMom.com twitter party on romantic travel they asked where the most romantic place you’ve ever been. I could list 10 off the top of my head, but Venice, Italy tops that list. Here’s a photo tour about Venice 3.5 years later!

 Art Glass in Venice, Italy Art Glass in Venice, ItalyWe did tons of window shopping, including strolling through a local market. Venice is known for it’s glass and you can see from these pictures that holds true. The glass art was exquisite, as was the glass jewelry.
 About VeniceAbout VeniceNot every inch of Venice is on a canal, although most of it was! On our last morning we strolled back towards the entrance to the city to catch the bus. We stopped in a couple of shops, grabbed some lunch and hung out eating in this park.Meagan 901 Meagan 846

Walking around the city is an experience. Even if you do nothing but walk around and hang out in cafes you’ll have a great time.

Pirate Show and Fireworks aboard the Disney Fantasy

This video is of one of the shows you can see while on your Disney Fantasy cruise, a pirate show. One of the nights you are on board they'll have a pirate show where Captain Jack Sparrow fights off the enemies. Captain Jack will at one point set off a fireworks show.

It's an elaborate show that goes on for quite a while. You can see it from multiple places on the ship. I think the best place to see it is on the right hand side of the stage up on the balcony. You can see different view points in the video to give you an idea of where you might like to stand/sit.

Playing at the pool

I didn't actually mean to post this on my travel blog. I meant for it to go onto my personal blog Chicken Block. I haven't updated it in a long time and I guess I still haven't! We took the kids to the local community college the other night for open swim. Everyone had lots of fun.
