A weekend in Venice.

oh my i know i say it everytime but i really didn't realize how long its been since i last posted. The past few weeks have been busy busy with the usual working, drinking and general living but also a long weekend in Venice, from which i've finally sorted through the 500 photos i took, so hopefully this post isn't too much of an overload.

I have to admit i always imagined that when i visited Venice it would involve romantic gondola rides and candlelit dinners (feel free to gag) but with a total lack of a beau of any sort i had to settle for seeing the city with my brother and mum. Romance or not it didn't matter anyway as i still had an amazing time enjoying the sun, crossing what felt like hundreds of bridges and drinking too much red wine and coffee. I still can't quite get it into my head that people actually live in Venice, it just looks and feels so different from anywhere else i've been.

Looking at these now it feels like i wasn't even there, it only took one day back at work to make the canals seem like a dream. To be honest as much as i really did love seeing Venice the best part was having some time to relax in which i wasn't ridiculously tired or hungover, i even found the time to finish two books which i haven't done in a long long time. Now of course its back to real life and i'm hankering after another holiday more than ever!


  1. Oooo I so want to go to Venice! Looks great!

  2. Venice is a lovely place. It's so different from other places and I really enjoyed it when I went too. It's meant to smell quite a lot in the summer, but we never smelt anything weird but I hear from many people that they could smell something. Maybe I have an insensitive nose. Don't worry, my trip wasn't romantic either, even with going with the bf haha.

  3. Glad to hear you had a wonderful time in Venice, such a beautiful collection of photos you've chosen! <3

    Sounds like a well deserved break for you, there's nothing better than seeing sights, but also enjoying the luxury of finishing books, always a lovely thing. Hopefully you'll manage another lovely holiday soon! <3

  4. Lovely pictures. I'd very much like to go to Venice, perhaps for a weekend like you did, as part of a longer trip to Italy. I heard somewhere that it gets very crowded in the day and very quiet at night, did you find that?

  5. I know what you mean---I always wondered how the people there felt about having to use boats and crossing the water everywhere. I mean, how do they move furniture into their houses? Maybe one day you will get to return sans family and with a special someone!
