Venezia, Italia / Venice, Italy
Life seems to be moving at the speed of light. It seems that just a few weeks ago I was celebrating the new year, having a birthday, and starting a new routine in Baden-Württemberg, Germany. Yet here I am, nearly three quarters through 2012, on north american soil, days away from a new semester and my mama's wedding, and less than a year away from my college graduation!
Yes, indeed. I have said it a thousand times before: time truly flies.
In early June, my love and I visited Venice – a first-time experience for us both. It was breathtakingly beautiful, vibrant and lively and ancient. The textures and colors alone were indescribable, and I longed to have my paints with me to capture the soul of the city. I took many, many photos and must divide them into several posts; not only does each image contain a thousand things to look at, but I need to take my sweet time editing them as I feel that I will only finish this huge project in small sessions!
Venice left me speechless with wonder and amazement. I so hope I will be back soon – for a proper visit this time; a day trip is far too short to take in so much – to explore not only the narrow, winding alleyways, tiny shops brimming with trinkets and bobbles, and the hundreds of bridges crisscrossing turquoise canals, but also the surrounding countryside and other well known places like Rome and Florence. And next time, I'll be sure to bring my paints.
