Out With Erin

Exploring the Beauty of YYC and Beyond

I’ve decided that the older I get, the stronger my love/hate relationship with traveling grows. I hate the travel to get to the destination but I absolutely love the traveling.

Daniel and I were up just after 6am on Monday morning to commence our honeymoon! I couldn’t have been more excited, as it’s been a long time dream to go to Italy! Once we left Calgary, our first leg took us to Montreal. We had a yummy little lunch and wandered around the airport. We boarded our next plane to Halifax where we had a short little layover before hopping on our next plane to Paris. Once we arrived in Paris, we were both so exhausted, delusional, and just needed sleep, which we couldn’t. Luckily our layover wasn’t too long, before boarding our final leg and arriving in Venice.

Our b&b gave us phenomenal directions, which led us onto a water taxi and then walking route to B&B San Marco. The room itself is great, but the view out of our window is stunning!

Once we got settled, showered, and situated, we headed out to do some exploring and find a tasty first Venetian meal.

Venice just has streets after streets of little narrow passageways that lead you to a courtyard, canal, or other passageway. It’s absolutely magical, and I’m actually quite excited to get lost in the maze around us.

We had an amazing meal at a place called Trattoria Da Jonny. To start, I had the mussels and Daniel had the stuffed zucchini floured squid.

Our main course was no other than gnocchi and baby squid polenta.

We each tried a local wine with our meal. Daniel opted for the red, and I, the white.

Our meal was deliciously tantalizing to the taste buds, and the seafood was ridiculously fresh. We strolled back to our b&b stuffed, hot (did I mentioned it’s +40 here?), and prosecco in hand. Cheers to the start of our honeymoon.
