The last time I was in Venice, I was on a photography trip with college. It was fun, but we didn't get to spend much time photographing anything that wasn't a main viewpoint. When I returned last week with my boyfriend, we indulged in lengthy strolls (getting happily lost more than actually finding our way anywhere!) glasses of wine in the many small piazzas and taking in the Catholic architecture of the many churches.
Unfortunately for my photos, the weather was very misty for a large portion of the time. This added to the mystic feeling of the walks, but didn't make for much more than "we were here" tourist snaps. When the sun did manage to break through towards the end of our stay, it was glorious. We enjoyed posh coffee on the grand canal for my boyfriend's birthday and ate much too much gelato! (You will subsequently find me in the gym for the next few months at weekends!)
As I have been away from the blog for the past few days, I thought I would share some images with you, to catch you up on my endeavors. Check out the amazing copy of Alice In Wonderland I found in a quirky bookshop (a bargain at only 2000 euros!)
So there you have it! If you haven't been to Venice you must go if you can! It's such a lovely, relaxing break. The Italians call is "Serenessima" for it's peacefulness and I am inclined to do the same.
I have my head in a couple of books at the moment, so I will be back with a review shortly. Stay tuned!
