The Driver's come to Italy: Venice

   This past July my parents made the long trip across the big pond for a visit! My dad was here for 1 week and my mom stayed 2 weeks. We had such a great time and saw a lot! We started inVenice, the next day stopped in Parma on the way to Rome for a few days, then stopped in Pisa on the the way to the Cinque Terre for a few days! I picked them up at the airport and we headed straight for Venice. I loved showing them around one of my favorite cities! 

We took a ferry over to the island of Murano which is famous for it's glass. We were able to catch a short glass demonstration.

He made this horse, called a Ferrari, right in front of us! It was amazing!

Their first experience with having to pay for a European restroom. It was especially expensive this summer!

A gondola traffic jam.

There were so many boats out today.
