A Good Day for a Gondola Ride

These pictures need no introduction, we had a perfect sunny day for our gondola ride, an essential part of the Venice experience. The gondoliers navigate the narrow canals using their feet to push off buildings to move the boats, all while standing and rowing. At the end of our tour our gondolier said there is a nickname in Italy for boys like Gus, “hurricane.” But he didn’t fall overboard so we are calling it a success!
