It was unbelievably difficult for me to settle on just one place. I decided to make it somewhere I'd never been before...and then I decided to stop over thinking and just pick a place already...and I landed at Piazza San Marco in Venezia, or as we call it for some reason, Venice. (Does anyone know why we don't all call it Venezia?)
I would stroll the square, sidestepping pigeons and saying buongiorno to people whose eyes met mine, not worrying about my sorry accent. I would have tickets for that evening's opera in my pocket and a caffe-flavored gelato in my hand. I'd be wearing a darling scarf I'd just purchased, arranged in the most stylish of ways, while digesting the Eucharist I received that morning at the basilica. Also, I'd still be smiling about something flirty the adorable gondolier said to me the night before---right before I handed him the biggest tip he'd gotten in a good long while.
