I took this picture of the Grand Canal in the Summer of 2008 in Venice, Italy. We spent two nights in Venice before, my boyfriend and I, took an independent tour of Italy.
After spending a week in Serre de Rappallano, located just outside of Siena, I met my boyfriend in Venice. After spending two nights in a wonderful B&B, which had a Harry Potter-like entrance, we took the train to the Cinque Terra Region. Each of us had our own Global Eurail Passes, which made trip very relaxed and worry-free.
