When in Rome...or Rather Venice

So after reviewing our finances (post-tax season), I think it's time to embrace the idea that we are heading to a new more exotic locale for vacation this summer.

Venice, Baby!

Hubby has signed up for a 2-day photography workshop and I'm gonna tag along and extend the trip.  I may not have enough funds to buy some art, some Italian fashion, or Murano glass, but we're going.  I hit the bookstore last week and picked up an Italian phrase book, a guide book of Venice, and - of course - Italy for Dummies.

But, lest any of you think I'm changing my ways by going all European, let me assure you in August we return to the same old vacation spot - Cape Cod - for our standard week.  This will be our 9th year.

I don't think it is any less beautiful than Venice, do you?

I'm happy for you that you have room in your life for both.

My best friend went to Venice a couple of years ago with two of her cousins. She had dreamed of going there her whole life, and when she got off the plane, she burst into tears she was so ecstatic! She said she felt she made a huge spectacle of herself. I hope you're just a little calmer when you get off the plane!

I'm so jealous! I was very anxiuos when I was on my way to Spain, the language barrier and currency and not knowing where I was going were enough, but it is so worth it! You will be a new woman when you return!
