A morning by the Grand Canal in Venice

IMG_2060

We got an early start to our second day in Venice. The kids woke us up anyways so we just got ready and went out. It was a really good few hours, I really loved how quiet everything was and how the only people around seemed to be the locals heading to work.

The first stop was the Rialto Brigde. We went by it while we were in a water bus the previous day…and we noticed it was completely packed with people. So to go there first thing seemed like a good bet (and it was). The view there was so incredible! I just love how Elis scrunched down to get a good look between the poles. He sat there for a while, just watching the boats. <3

These two were pretty popular and looked like total rockstars. 😅

Then we just strolled along the Grand Canal, until we ended up at the Rialto morning market. They had a bunch of fruits and fresh veggies. The strawberries both looked – and smelled amazing – so we had to get some.

While we sat there I just thought “I’ll remember this”. Everything was just so calm, and we sat in the sunshine looking over the boats and eating strawberries.

I could’ve done morning in Venice for many hours!

I asked for a posed photo and this was what I got. ;)

Our train left a few hours later so we started to make our way towards train station. We had a lot of ground to cover and a lot we wanted to see on the way. The boys had not gotten sick of crossing canals yet, which was really cute. I’m still in awe over how far they actually walked. Crazy.

Made it to the train station! And Sam decided he wanted a break from walking.

I like how he made sure he had some strawberries to snack on while getting comfy, haha. Next stop: Florence!

    Första bilden ser ut som en målning. Så extremt vacker och perfekt i färgerna. Plus barnens perfekta små nyfikna poser. Gillar verkligen den gröna stickade tröjan med de rosa shortsen på sam, perfekt matchning! Jordgubbsinlägget på instagram var ju helt magiskt så kul att läsa ännu mer om den mysiga stunden. Kul att ha de bilderna så att ni alltid minns. Tycker de ser så söta ut, samt och elis, som små minimänniskir mitt i stora city. De äger ju gatorna:D är taggad för inlägg om florens nu!
