A Watery Dream Land


I had no idea how beautiful Venice is. As soon as we set foot on the pavements of the floating city, I found myself in awe of its unrelenting majesty.










When we visited Venice, the sun was ruthless and so the streets were exceptionally quiet for the summer season. This suited us fine, for though it was hot, there was a lot of space to wander and take in the feel of the city.

Walking through and across the ancient streets, shadow-cast alleys and little bridges, I caught a delicate sense of an atmosphere riddled with marvellously elaborate antiquity that still clings to the air here. I can only imagine how truly magnificent Venice must have looked in its heyday and I envy those that would have pranced about in masquerade regalia along its paths.





From the dancing reflections, to the curiously fixtures,Venice is a place so rich in detail that it can be overwhelming.

I hope to visit again so that I may steep my senses further into it's rich brew of stories.

X Thank you EZ for being a truly brilliant and patient guide and Thank you JZ + AZ for letting us have him for the day! This really was the best birthday ever!
