We've moved from Baltimore, Maryland USA to Venice, Italy in pursuit of living our dream!

Life in Venice - view from the bridge

Here's a view of our new home!!!! The building right in the middle of the picture between these 2 bridges, is where we have landed for the next 12 months.

We're in the Santa Croce sestiere, not at all where we originally thought we would be, but we have quickly come to love and appreciate our new neighborhood. We're just a few minutes walk to both the Ferrovia and P. Roma. Campo Santa Margharita is the closest campo, which has some lovely restaurants and shops, as well as local fish and produce stalls every day.

It's been a much easier transition than we ever expected. We feel like we're home!

Take a picture of yourself with this new Italian hair-do so I can see that you're alive and kicking...please!

I just found your site and am amazed and inspired that you've left the USA and are living a fabulous new life in Venice. I have always wanted to move overseas. I love the pictures and enjoy reading.

I lived with my family just outside of Venice from 2003 to 2007, while on military assignement there. I can relate to everything you are going through!
As a photographer I especially enjoyed all the photo opportunities...!! Enjoy your experience Karen:-) How about that hot chocolate at St. Marc's piazza????
