I believed some of you already visited   Venice, Italy. Some of you might also had experienced  the gondola ride around the canals of Venice. I did and I experienced it twice. I already visited Venice four times and can’t wait to visit it again for the fifth time next week. Yes, I am traveling again this year and I am hoping for more travels to come.

Taken while riding a gondola in Venice, Italy during my fourth visit in summer 2011.

During my second ride in gondola last summer 2011. We were lucky because a  gondolier, the person who navigate a gondola,  was singing live as they were approaching us. In this gondola, there  was a couple  whom I guessed just got  engaged. That was very romantic and  interesting. Imagine witnessing a gondolier singing?

To my friends out there who love to sing and play musical instruments, you might want to check this good mxr super badass distortion from guitar center. I know some of you are looking for this.

“The gondola is a traditional, flat-bottomed Venetian rowing boat, well suited to the conditions of the Venetian lagoon. The gondola is propelled like punting, except an oar is used instead of a pole. For centuries gondolas were the chief means of transportation and most common watercraft within Venice.”

Venice is beautiful city worth-to-visit in Italy.  No wonder, I keep on coming back there when there is a chance.  If you are visiting Venice, be sure to experience a gondola  ride to see the canals in this city.
