[Still want to do - April 2013] I can't decide if I just want to go to New York around Christmas time or if I want to actually spend Christmas there. Honestly, I think I just want to go for the snow and the lights. Just going sometime around Christmas would suffice for me.
I rode in a gondola this summer and it was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! The guy giving us the ride sang in italian and told us about gondolas and venice. This sould definitly be on your bucket list! Best. Trip. Ever!! Hope to go to Italy again sometime :)
