    Venedig San Marco

    September 23, 2019 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 17 °C

    Venedig ist ein einziges Museum unter freiem Himmel. Die vielen malerischen Kanäle, welche von Brücken überspannt werden, singende Gondoliere und die bröckelnden Hausfassaden. Hier kann man abtauchen in eine eigentlich nicht mehr zeitgemäße Welt.Read more

    Four Trains and a Ferry

    May 26, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Had a fabulous time in Vernazza but off to Venice. Graham carried the two cases down the steepest stairs I have ever seen. Well done to him. Got on the first train with time to spare. Had a 30 minute lay over before the second train from La Spezia to Pisa so all relaxed. As we were in first class we wandered to the end of the platform. The very, very long train arrives with no first class in sight. Where is it? Down the other end. Sprinted from one end of the platform to the other and Graham threw the cases up the stairs. Just made it, but because we were late had to store the bags in the doorway so I spent the next hour of what should have been a relaxing, first class train journey pacing up and down to check on my suitcase.
    Got to Pisa and had 10 minutes to get down through the underpass and up the other side onto the next train, so threw the cases down the stairs and then Graham had to carry both up. Made train number 3. Fifteen minutes at Florence to get train number 4 but by now I was a tad stressed so when we were queuing patiently to get on a lady pushed in front my inner bitch came out and I just about flattened her with my suitcase. Wrong day to push my buttons lady! Once again Graham was throwing cases up into trains and off again.
    Finally arrived in Venice, and now for the fun of the ferry with suitcases. After waiting for three ferries to get on one a young man tried to push past me so I ran over his foot with my suitcase. When will they learn.
    So we made it to our hotel in one piece after a very physical journey and we are still talking. Lucky we have lost weight and Graham has been working out – that’s all I can say!

    Magical Venice

    May 27, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    We are looooving Venice. There’s a surprise around every corner. You also get lost around every corner. Our hotel is on the canal. We paid extra for a canal room, as you do, and we are rewarded with the world’s smallest balcony. I’ve attached a photo of Graham on said balcony. I had to take it from the room as we both can’t half stand on it at once. But we do get to hear the gondolas go past with the gondoliers chatting and singing away. They are a happy lot. Apparently they are incredibly well paid and smoke a lot of weed.

    Graham is bringing out a book in Spring 2018 – 1001 Gondolas of Venice I Have Photographed. There will be a follow up book Summer 2019 – And Here Are the Canals.

    We visited the bell tower of St Mark’s Basilica before the crowds to get a bird’s eye view over Venice. Then off to Doge’s Palace, which was a bit of a mix of Parliament House and Supreme Court. Saw the cell Casanova escaped from. Managed to squeeze in a Crime and Punishment Exhibition and then wandered around getting lost.

    Had a lovely dinner (aren’t they all) and asked for the bill. Certainly sir, but here are some biscuits first. Well it would be rude not to eat them. Asked for the bill again. Certainly, but now here is the limoncello. Still rude to refuse. About an hour later we rolled out and were rolling home through St Mark’s Square to find it full of people, as the restaurants on the square had orchestras playing. Everyone was clapping along and some were dancing. It was wonderful!

    Enjoying a day of discovering Venice

    October 19, 2015 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 10 °C

    More pics from beautiful Venice. For lunch when they brought us our wine, they also brought a bowl of potato chips. Funny combo! Of course, I made sure I got one more gelato before we went home! Much smoother and tastier than any ice cream in the USA!Read more
