VENICE – MY FAVOURITE CITY… SO FAR!

Venice

There will be no Silent Sunday post from me today for two reasons:

  1. I have been too ill to leave my bed for the last week, and I didn’t think that anyone really wanted to see a picture of a snotty tissue
  2. Unless I have collapsed at the airport, I should be on my way to Budapest as this is published and so won’t be able to do the Silent Sunday link-up

Instead, I have pictures of Venice for you.  These are from back in 2009, just a few short months before I started blogging and I’m really not sure why I haven’t posted them before now.

Venice is my favourite of all the cities I have visited so far. I felt strangely at home there and kept being able to lead us to places without using a map (which was weird, as this was my first visit), also those guide books were not kidding about the mosquitoes, they were everywhere.  I sprayed myself head to toe in repellent and was only bitten once – which is something of a miracle.

I learnt a few things preparing this little post:

  1. Back in my pre-blogging days, I hardly took any pictures. Like for real people, this is pretty much all the pictures I took. of the whole of Venice
  2. My hair was very short in 2009
  3. My old ‘point and shoot’ camera was really not very good
  4. I absolutely need to go back to Venice so that I can take proper pictures

Any now without any further ado, I give you the pictures…
