Finding my hostel when I arrived in Venice was like finding a needle in a haystack – the place looked to me like one big maze! I did find it though, after 100 years!
Venice or Venezia is a city in northeastern Italy. Parts of Venice are renowned for the beauty of their settings, their architecture and artwork. It has no roads, just canals lined with Renaissance and Gothic palaces. The lagoon and a part of the city are listed as a World Heritage Site.
The Grand Canal is a canal in Venice. It forms one of the major water-traffic corridors in the city. Public transport is provided by water buses and private water taxis.
The Rialto Bridge is one of the four bridges spanning the Grand Canal in Venice. It is the oldest bridge across the canal, and is the dividing line for the districts of San Marco and San Polo.
Many tourists explore the canal by gondola. The gondola is propelled by a person (the gondolier) who stands facing the bow and rows with a forward stroke.
As much as I wanted to try one, I was not exactly in the romantic mood at that time, after walking for hours looking for my hostel!
And speaking of my hostel, before calling it a night and heading back to my place, I decided to grab some snacks at a nearby store. It was below zero degree celsius and I thought a couple of torrones complemented by a glass of hot chocolate should cap my night.
But when I scanned the items in the international foods section, I ended up buying two packs of LUCKY ME PANSIT CANTON (chili-mansi flavor)!
