Even blogs need a beginning. This is mine!
Some love affairs will never die, but who would have thought that I would ever fall hopelessly in love with …a city! But not just any city – VENICE. Still amazingly propped up by millions of tree trunks after five centuries or so, she is arguably the most beautiful city in the world. Not only is she unique; she is magical, alluring, flamboyant, historically fascinating and architecturally stunning, all rolled into one. And to ride on a vaporetto at night is like being in fairyland!
No wonder, then, that I’m not the only one who has been captivated by Venice and is completely in awe of her beauty. I must be, to have written my three books (so far!) about her entitled “Venice: The Diary of an Awestruck Traveller” (Volumes 1, 2 and 3 (I like originality) but they do have their own sub-titles!). In them I take my readers with me, off the beaten track, as I set out to discover all those hidden and little-known gems that Venice has to offer. As a photographer, I’m in my element and am never short of a superb view to capture. And some funny things happen to me on the way!
So, have I whetted your appetite to join me on my visit this “water wonderland”? I hope so. Come back next month and we can start off on our journey of discovery together. You’ll be amazed what’s around that corner! I think we might start with Venice’s Clock Tower and the James Bond connection! But till then, ciao!
