My Magic Mud World Tour: 6th Stop – Venice, Italy

Monday, March 20, 2017 | By My Magic Mud

The Mud Train runs on steam so we had to stop her in Munich and hop on board a bullet train so that we could scale the Alps into Italy, which delivered us into Venice.

In Italy, My Magic Mud would be participating in its second European trade fair; two in just 30 days. Our trip from Germany, to Prague, and through Amsterdam, came to a close, however the Italian portion of our World Tour was just beginning.

Here’s some pictures from the bullet train from Munich to Venice:

All the women at his service:

Anything he wants, he gets.

The obligatory beer on a beautiful ride through the Alps. Why not?

And we arrived in Venice

The train systems in Europe are fantastic, just always make sure you’re on the fast trains and not the ones that stop constantly. Spend that extra money and do it up right, such a pleasant way to travel.

Almost instantly, we had to jump on a Gondola! Azzy was terrified but he braved it through.

Venetian life

We had breakfast here every morning.

In Venice, so many people walk these cute little dogs everywhere. It seems posh to hold a cute dog while you’re walking. This one was adorable and loved Jessica. Coincidentally, we caught a picture of the old man in the back who was at this coffee shop every day. This guy was so tiny and his Italian was old and beautiful; it’s likely he’s been frequenting this place for years. Every morning, he has a watered-down wine in a shot glass and smokes cigarettes with other locals. Loved just watching him. By the end of our trip, he’d start smiling at us. This was our favorite coffee shop in Venice, and we’d always get an assortment of their “crunchies” which were like little pieces of toasted bread with different smears, fish, jams, cabbage, and cheese. The bill was always super cheap, but the quality of the cafe lattes and food was amazing. The girls working here were really cute as well, and the old gentleman that owned the place was very charming and sweet. Love it here…

Our favorite spot in Venice

This was our favorite plaza in Venice. This place got me all choked up, it was so beautiful. I told Jessica that when I expire, she can come here to remember me and our moment together.

Doge Palace

Pagan symbols are found throughout most of the important civic buildings and cathedrals that we’ve visited throughout Europe. This is another council room in the Doge Palace

[image below] The three magistrates would sit here to decide the fate of prisoners after reviewing the evidence. The inquisitors’ chambers are in the very next room. They used these cubic shapes to further press there dominance and disorient a prisoner, they also had lady justice and angels cutting through men in the ceiling artwork. Pretty intense room. Very masonic as well

[image below] That is how the Venetians tortured people during interrogations. String them up with their arms suspended behind them. If they didn’t like your answers they’d keep pulling. Afterwards, different men would come tend to you, give you a nice meal, massage you, tell you everything would be alright, and then different men would torture you 10 hours later. They had strict rules on torture, and they even made you see a doctor first to evaluate whether you were in the proper mind frame and physical condition to withstand torture. Not kidding.

Torture & Interrogation Room

Canova’s Toomb

Canova was a famous artist and architect in Venice. We visited this tomb in a cathedral and I was blown away by how pagan / Egyptian it was. In a time when being a heretic could get you burned alive, I was shocked by the imagery in this ancient cathedral.

Venetian Opera

This was the most memorable experience: taking our family to a beautiful Opera that was high energy, and even made them laugh. Once in a lifetime experience.

What People Are Saying
  • “I absolutely love their products! I have been on a journey of cleaning out all toxic products in my life because of the things I found that can cause issues in your body with your hormones. I was so glad that these products use clean and safe ingredients for my entire family! I can confidently use this tooth paste and know that it is not adding toxins into my body.

    Brandi
  • “Our household has been using the My Magic Mud, Activated Charcoal Oral Rinse( Alcohol Free) for about 2 weeks now. When we first got it and opened it, I have to say the smell was extremely strong but when you rinse with it, it’s not as strong as it smells. I love how clean my mouth feels after using this product. I don’t typically use mouth wash because I just don’t like the taste of them. With the My Magic Mud, the taste is so smooth it doesn’t bother me. I recommend this product to anyone looking for a new mouth rinse.

    Angela
  • “I’ve been using it for a year and I’ve tried the wintergreen and spearmint but I would have to say peppermint is my favourite because of how the peppermint feels. It is also super natural and safe that I put it on my hives that I had and they went away and felt instantly better after I put it on! I love this product so much :)

    Sydney
  • “Received some at the Natural Products Expo; really love it and came looking for a Cyber Monday Deal. All I want for Christmas is a water filter and this toothpaste! For some reason, it makes me enjoy brushing my teeth. I'm slowly switching out all toxic products in my household, and am very happy with the ingredients (and results) of Magic Mud. I like the paste when I'm short on time, and the powder for a deep clean. One quick wipe will do the trick for keeping your sink clean - 10 seconds tops. Don't use it for your first time while you're running late for work though

    Taya
  • “I love MAGIC MUD! I've been using it for the past few years and I will not be going back to anything else. I began using Magic Mud because I was getting burns on the corners of my mouth from regular toothpaste. I actually bought some at the New Braunfels farmers market the first time and was completely sold by my second use. I'm so proud to use a local product too.

    Erin
  • “I'd been curious about/following this page for months, but I'd found it right after I bought a more expensive (almost double the price!) whitening toothpaste. I was lucky enough to win a tube of the paste right around Thanksgiving. The customer service was incredible, and shipping was super-fast! I noticed a difference immediately: within the first two weeks, it had outperformed the more expensive paste - without tooth sensitivity!! I just bought the polish too, because I figure it's probably a great boost - and I intend to be a long-term customer. Thank you for making this product!! I'm already smiling more, and I love that my nephews are creeped out/fascinated by it

    Madeleine
  • “Love the name, love the packaging, love the flavor, love the clean-feeling teeth, but more than anything i just love the dirty grimy black n' nasty "sludgemouth" i get when using this glorious product. sure it might stain the ol' kitchin sink a little bit but a little desecration and blasphemy never hurt anybody amirite??? After being prescribed/pushed/recommended "extra-strength extra-fluoride prescription toothpaste [clinpro 5000]" from my dentist, i proudly and brazenly hucked that abominable tube of sorry toothlube away forever once i picked up a ripe slice of this unholy magma I recommend the motherlovin' heck out of this abzu-lutely lifechanging product

    Mark
  • “My Magic Mud is the most natural dentifrice on the market. The product is full of surprises as it both cleans your teeth and makes them whiter. Imagine using a black toothpaste to make your teeth SPARKLE.

    Donald Newman, DDS
  • “I am a Biological Dentist and “My Magic Mud” is a product I use being that it is 100% all natural, improves your oral health and makes your teeth brighter and whiter.
