I ended up being pretty lucky in the flights I got before I quit. For a good two months I went wonderful places - it still wasn't enough to make me happy with my job. I was THRILLED with the destinations but not so much with the actual working part of it.

The month before I quit I did two separate trips to Venice. Well... technically Aviano which is an hour away from Venice but thankfully Europe has embraced this magical traveling machine called a train. We went into Venice three times. I took way too many photos.

Gorgeous photos, as always. I'd love to go to Venice someday.

Thanks! If you ever get the chance to go you should definitely jump on the opportunity. The only downside to the city is that it is excessively touristy but alas, that seems to be the fate of most beautiful cities these days.

Awwww. Thanks! Granted, Venice is such a beautiful city that it's hard to take a bad picture!

Gorgeous pics indeed!

I wouldn't've clocked Venice as being a great place for cats - all that water... :)

Thanks! I'm glad you like them!

Strangely, Venice is full of cats. It's not too hard to stay dry and full of nooks and crannies. Granted, I can't speak for what it's like on the feline front when it floods.

Ahh, these are so gorgeous! I still need to make it to Venice.

Also, I'm a little bummed your schedule never brought you through Frankfurt again, but sooo glad for you that you have gotten out of that job. Best of luck with the new gig!

Thanks! I'm glad you like them! Venice is a city everyone should visit if they can. Granted, it's very touristy but still gorgeous.

I REALLY wanted another layover in Frankfurt. I would have contacted you in a heartbeat if I could have swung it but my company never cooperated and it just got to the point that I was sick of flying. Alas, it happens.
