Molto Bella, Venezia

These past few days I have REALLY been missing Italy. One of my new blogger friends, Emily from Emily & Dot, spent a portion of her summer in Milan - I just had to share a quote she shared in one of her posts: "Italy is a dream that keeps returning for the rest of your life." - Anna Akhmatova. This quote rings true for me, and I just can't wait until the day I can go back! Hopefully, that's sooner I can think!

Don't even try to tell me that these pictures don't have you falling in love!

Yes I bought a hat. I couldn't help myself!

#BEClang: Backpacking Europe.

Italians take pizza very seriously.

Gelato for breakfast? I can dig it.

Unfortunately, a large portion of the Rialto was under restoration, but at least I snuck onto someone's dock and got this picture!

Italy is absolutely beautiful - it's the type of city that you can stay in for a day and forever be in love with it!

Catch you next time.
