So, we just got back from Venice....yes yes, THAT Venice!!! It was incredible!! Ben planned this surprise trip for me, and I had no idea what we were doing. He told me that we were going to the French countryside for a few days, since we didn't take a proper honeymoon after our wedding. I was really excited because this region we were supposedly going to had amazing foie gras (which I LOVE!). On New Years Eve, we went to "pick up his friends car" at the train station, and after waiting there for about 15 minutes he told me that we were not going to drive anywhere and handed me a book on VENICE! I was thrilled (and shocked!). I am such a snoop and it's hard to keep secrets from me, but he did an amazing job!
We took the overnight train, which was fun. After eating dinner at the restaurant, it was time to go to bed...and then in the morning we woke up in Venice. We spent 4 days and 3 nights there just walking around, exploring the city, eating WAY too much and sampling the tiramisu at every single restaurant! The weather was great, especially for this time of year. The first 2 days were clear blue skies, and the last 2 were a bit overcast but still wonderful. It was nice to be in the city when there weren't so many tourists. The trip was amazing....my husband is amazing...and I'm psyched, rested, and ready for an amazing 2008!
We got back to Paris this morning and then leave for NYC on Monday afternoon. Hope everyone is getting back into the swing of things...it's going to be a great year!!!
