From the Archives: Venice, ITALY

I have a friend going to Venice, Italy this year, so I thought I’d post some old pix from my last trip, years ago now.  All my friends seem to be taking these great International trips… seems I’m the one staying home for a change.  Maybe I need to some planning.  Hmmmm.

I love Venice.  It’s a magical place.  Just sitting in St. Mark’s square having a coffee watching the people go by… or the dueling music at night, can be very entertaining.

But it’s so much more… it’s the architecture, the gondolas, the city on the water, the food stalls, and artisan shops filled with masks, glass blowing, and hand made papers.  It is a festival for the eyes and the senses.

I hope she enjoys it as much as we did.  But then, how could you not.

Have fun!… and get lots of GREAT pix.
