In August, Ben and I had a little trip to Venice for 5 days. I’d never been to Italy, and the natural colour palette of the island blew me away. England seems to me to be a wash of greys, greens, browns, and yellowy tones. Venice was vibrant aqua and satsuma orange. And the place looked like it had been frozen in time, walking through the alleyways at night you could almost imagine it was still the 18th century.
Everything looked like art. Everything was beautiful. Around every corner was another surprise.
We had been told there were a lot of stray cats in Venice and that the local people would feed them and care for them. They must be well cared for, as we only saw two and they were the fattest most content strays I’ve ever seen!
The Doge’s Palace was a highlight – and not only because of its history but also because of the strange artworks hiding inside. (I also love the fact that Casanova famously escaped from here when he was a prisoner!)
I hope we can go again in the future. We left the island engaged, so perhaps one day we can return married? 🙂
