I would love to visit Venice again. But for now, I will have to be content with the nostalgia that comes with looking over old photographs.

Remembering Venice In Photos


I’ve always been a romantic at heart. In Venice, I deliberately left my map behind in the hotel room and fell into the maze of streets and canals…espresso in one hand and camera in the other. Yes, definitely a precarious balancing act at times but, really…sometimes it’s difficult to decide which one takes priority.In this case, being mid-winter I needed both, but my camera won out in the end. I was almost instantly lost of course amongst the rustic, crumbling walls and surprising splashes of colour in this sinking city.

Gliding through the canals on a Venice gondola ride at sunset is the perfect way to begin any visit to this beautiful city.
