Italy Adventures - Day 1/2

Travel day. Chicago to Madrid 7.5hrs + 5 hr layover + 2 hrs to Venice = running on fumes!! 

Luckily travel day was for the most part uneventful. The Madrid airport is huge, confusing and had super clean bathrooms!  Venice is surrounded by water so upon arrival we took a water taxi to our hotel on the island of Lido. It's been raining all day and the water was rough so this made for one bumpy ride. Yikes!

Our hotel is a cute boutique (its actually a Best Western brand lol) hotel and very European, meaning SMALL! However its clean, great location, free wifi, semi comfy twin bed and free breakfast daily. After being in the same clothes for over 24hrs, I was happy to unpack, hug the shower and freshen up for dinner.
