Venice, Italy

(Continuing "Pictures in a new Light - Black and White" :) series)

One of our favorite trips till date was the trip to Italy. Our final stop before returning back home was Venice. My expectations, when we reached Venice, were turned almost upside down. For one, I was expecting this place to be romantic somehow, which I had heard from people and seen on travel shows. Nope, this wasn't any where close to romantic.

It was crowded with tourists and shops and the grand canal was  busy with boats and a few Gondolas. The St. Mark Square was literally filled with a Samsung ad, what an eye sore. Yes there was music near around, the waiters shooing away people who wanted to get close and listen to the music near St Marks Square. It became a bit chaotic when the rain decided to show its grace.

But nevertheless, getting lost in the maze was fun and a bit of an adventure. This old city blew our breath away but not in a romantic way!
