Today we had a free day in Venice. Some people did a walking tour of the city but me and Rein walked around together and ditched the group. We went to Saint Michael church and the whole ceiling is covered in real gold. It was really amazing, we lined up for about 40 minutes.
We then walked to the Raito Bridge which was cool, I liked Venice because its impossible to get lost. We walked with out a map and found everything fine. The bridge was covered with people and shops on the top, mainly jewellery stores. We then walked back to meet the group at 11 am to do a glass blowing demonstration.
On the way back to the centre of the city the water levels started to rise and the city was literally flooding. It was so random, and amazing. This city is literally going under. It floods for about 6 hours in the day, but not overly covered with water, just like your ankles. We went to meet the group, and we were about 1 minute late and they left with out us! I was pisses because I really wanted to see the demonstration. Anyway, we walked around trying to find the others and finally ran into them at the place. I got to have a look in the glass shop and all their products were incredible and expensive. But worth seeing the shops. We then wondered around and looked at more shops. After this, Sanda, Amy, Danika and myself found the cutest pizza place for lunch. It was the best pizza I have ever eaten, better than Rome and Florence. Megghy joined us for lunch and we then met the others for a gondola ride through the water ways of Venice. This was also amazing and beautiful views all the way. Me and Amy were with Craig, Alex, Brad and Blake. We had a bottle of wine for the ride and enjoyed the 15 minutes of this floating city.Blake was a cuttie and brought some roses for our group. Amy and I being the only girls claimed them. After our gondola ride we headed back to the accommodation and had dinner. Straight after dinner we had another party which included never have I ever with about 20 people, it was interesting. We also played several rounds of Flip a Cup, which was awesome. After this we went to the actual pub in the campsite and had more drinks, danced on the tables and played flip a cup. This was one loose night, everyone got pretty drunk!
