There’s something about sitting on the water on board a row boat or ferry that makes me feel happy. When we went to Venice back in 2011 I loved gliding along the water on the €1 little traghetti that take you from one side of the canal to the other, I absolutely loved it. I felt so close to the water and felt like dipping a hand in the entire time. I loved watching how the locals who are so accustomed to taking the traghetti everyday wouldn’t sit down but would rather stand and read their newspaper or just look lost in their thoughts carrying their bags of shopping.

Here’s a glimpse at just a few of the travels we’ve made by boat or caught on camera other people doing the same.
