This year we finally had a weekend away without the kids to celebrate our birthdays. We picked Venice – the last time I visited Venice I was Inter-railing with my girlfriends 23 years ago but this beautiful city had a big impact on me and I always wanted to return and rediscover Venice again. When you arrive in Venice you feel like you have stepped back in time or onto a movie set. Its like nothing I have ever experienced before – its so magical, mystical, beautiful and romantic and even after all these years I still felt my heart skip a little beat when we arrived. If you havent been then put on your To Do list – you wont regret it.
