When i told people that i visited Venice, the first question was 'Did u take the gondola ride'? The answer was a NO and an added wait for the prince charming to accompany me. With Venice on the list for the city of love, no point taking a gondola ride alone.

I landed in Venice without a good night's sleep and catching a good hour of it even if it meant stratching myself on the railway platform din't seem very disgusting.
I have to remind you that when ur in abroad, things are almost always spotlessly clean and i took that as an excuse.

The first sight of Venice took me by shock. I stepped outside the train station and bingo there is water. No roads but canals. Now this is truly a water city.
Being built on water, Venice is a romantic place.

But something told me Kerala was better.

I want to write more, but this post has been lying here for long so before it rust and melts i publish :)

what if George Clooney is in that bunch.. ;)

Venice is a good place but also has a lot of hype attached to it(something common among all Eurpean cities). Not sure why people find it romantic..
I say small towns, villages, ForestsMountainsRivers(go hiking) are the places to visit in Europe even if U R on a honeymoon

I too prefer Western Ghats over Venice :)
