Ciao! WMU Volleyball is coming at you live from Venice, Italy today. After a long 5 hour bus ride from Maribor (although it didn’t seem so long to Lish courtesy of our driver Tomo), we arrived in Venice ready to soak up some Italian sun & drown ourselves in spaghetti sauce. Sarah left us to begin our journey through the city built on water with the advice, “you’re not doing Venice right if you’re not lost” and boy was she right. Every single group took a different way and everyone was lost between the numerous tourist shops and singing men on gondolas. But, I think we all came to the conclusion that there’s no better place to be lost in than Venice. The views alone could have you entertained for hours and don’t even get me started on the food and shopping… lemme just say I’m sorry dad for the future credit card bill you will be receiving :). Not only did half the team get over their fear of touching pigeons, but Lish moved on from her romance with the bus driver to a fine Italian ice cream man, while Bailey was breaking crucifixes in the local store.
After a long day of being lost Americans, we sat down together as a team for our first Italian feast. They say, “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach,” and even though majority of us are girls, I think we can all agree that we left that restaurant wishing we could wife that chef up.
With a belly full of spaghetti, we wondered our way through Venice one more time in search of the train station. 19,000 steps and a few credit card swipes later (sorry again dad), we finally found the station and happily popped a squat on the steps to wait. As a proud Fitbit owner I want to say 19,000 steps was worth it, but my feet have me feeling some type of way after a day like today.
Only a one hour train ride stands between us and the spa at our hotel, and lemme tell you I think we’ll be taking full advantage of spa treatment after a week of being tourists/ volleyball players.
Well, that’s all I have for today. Ciao for now and see ya real soon Venice, stay beautiful and thank you for taking all of my money 🙂 image
