After being in Venice a few days I decided I had seen it all... soo.. what to do now? Island hopping! There are many islands around Venice that you can get to by boat. I went to Murano, home of glass blowing, and also Burano, home of lace. Such a wonderful and interesting experience. I got to witness first hand how glass is made as well as lace. Don't worry family and friends... you will be getting some wonderful gifts when I return home!
