Happy Independence Day to all my fellow American readers! I hope you're all enjoying this fantastic holiday and get to see some beautiful fireworks! I'll probably be seeing them from a vantage point similar to this one. Thanks so much for all the get-well emails, I'm doing much better!
I've had travel on my mind lately due to my guest blogging over at PVE on the art of travel. I keep thinking of all the places I have yet to visit that are must -sees! Probably #1 on my list is Venice.I've heard people says it is touristy, over-rated or smelly, but nothing beats the romance and beauty of that crumbly, mouldy city in all its excess. I think my love affair with the city began when I first saw 'A room with a view' at a very young age. Many of my favorite artists over time have also been obsessed with this fair city. I've heard it compared to Stockholm, which I know very well, but the images from Venice are just so much more appealing (even though Stockholm is amazing!).
What exactly is the draw of this fair city? Please leave stories, must-sees and your own impressions of Venice in comments! Hopefully one day soon I'll be able to experience it for myself!
