Venice – Nothing Quite Like It | America’s Cup Sailing

We interrupt our current chain of blog posts to bring you a post I thought would be criminal to keep from the internet any longer. Lisa and I just jumped down to Venice this past week to check out the America’s Cup sailing race. Though we were only there for a few days, it really reminded me just how much I love Venice – there truly is no other place in the world like it.

If you have not been to Venice – I highly, highly suggest you put it on your immediate “Must Travel To” list and start planning your trip there.!

It was a great few day, and… well… I’ll just let the photos do the talking from here on out. Enjoy!
