I'd rather be in the city of water..

     Lately it hasn't stopped snowing. The snow we've had from weeks ago is still on the ground, now being covered by more and more piles of snow. Schools have been cancelled for a week straight and it leads my mind to wonder about traveling to a faraway place.. away from all of this snow!

        So to answer this week's question for the Etsy Blogger's carnival (my first one ever!) :
              Of all the places in the world, where would you like to go and why?

Venice, Italy would be my choice, hands down!
      My fascination with this beautiful place started only around two summers ago, when I attended the Rhode Island School of Design summer program. For those of you who don't know, RISD is located in Providence, Rhode Island. Providence is a very beautiful, small city which is built around a series of canals, much like Venice. Since then, I have made it a life goal that no matter what I will visit this city.

       How wonderful would it be to take a gondola or a boat to work, instead of a car? I have always loved the water, even since I was in diapers, just learning to swim. Visiting this city would be a dream come true. From the amazing architecture, the beauty of the water, to the spectacular sight of the Piazza San Marco, the experience alone would be truly fascinating. Being an amateur photographer, imagine the photo opportunities! The culture! The strange new language spoken by everyone around you and not to mention, the food! Authentic Italian cuisine most certainly must be delicious.

So enough of the day dreaming..
But someday, I will be sitting in a gondola staring up into the sky, making a mental check-mark off of my bucket list.
