Bella Venezia – Part 2

So continuing my holiday snaps, we actually spent most of the holiday in a town about an hour north of Venice, called Sacile. It’s where a lot of my boyfriend’s Italian family live. Italian relatives aren’t like English ones – when you tell them not to come over, they come anyway and shower you with food and friendly questions – I wasn’t complaining!

But there wasn’t anything worth documenting in Sacile, so my only holiday photos come from two trips to Venice. It was a joy just to wander the beautiful streets… even if the weather still wasn’t all that (as mentioned in my earlier post).

So hello again from Venezia!

We went to visit the amazing Doge’s Palace and did the ‘Secret Passages’ tour, which I highly, highly recommend. It’s hard to get on – we had to book days in advance! There were huge queues for it as well, but obviously online booking is for winners. Queuing is for losers. 
No photos allowed inside – boo.

We just stood outside everything else, which was more than enough for me.

I hope I get to go back one day soon.

Italy is very high up on my list of places to visit, and Venice is a lot of the reason why. It's just such a fascinating city to me; I feel like I've read about it in so many books that it's already familiar, and I would love to see if my idea of it matches the reality at all.
Beautiful snaps, and great outfit. That skirt is so perfect for the setting.
Cheers!

Oooh, you lucky thing, you! I've always wanted to go to Venice, those buildings look gorgeous, and so do you, come to that.

I don't photograph well, so I'm rather envious of your photogeneity…I always look like a warthog!

Happy Mother's day to all the mothers out there! What are y'all doing for Mother's Day? We went to church [ah, yes, I finished my live-in nanny job super early this morning at 12:40am. So I'm back home now.], gave our mom her Mother's Day gift [a new bike], and had lunch at home. Right now Gaby & our mom went for a bike ride and once they come back, me and Gaby will be heading out to go birthday shopping for our sister, Hanne-col [who will be 18 this week]. Not sure what I will be buying her yet,
