Venice Photo Diary

Venice, Italy, I knew I loved you.

You’re a city I have yet to experience elsewhere, and I find you, probably over any other place I have visited in the world, magical. You don’t have a car anywhere in sight, and your gondolas, although filled with Snapchatting tourists, are still a sight to see. I’m often lost, but I think that’s the point; I hope to never find my way because the twists and turns of the alleyways are what make your city feel so foreign. Each building, a different color, makes the city feel happier, especially when you eye a grandma popping out of her window to look down at her alley. I wonder how many years she’s called this place home. Clearly Venice has changed, but how much, according to her? I want to find out where she goes for a saucey Italian pizza or pungent espresso. Is she as feisty as the Italian cliché would say?

I’ve only visited twice, but you’ve already got me wanting to book my trip back for a third time.

See you next time, a dopo.

Venice is touristy AF, but to me, it’s still worth visiting.

Do you know of any cool places to hit up next time?damon signature

    I still kick myself for not checking out more of the biennale last year! If you’re there when it’s open (I assume the summer), there are sometimes parties at the Casino, that was pretty cool, and the building is amazing 🙂
    I’ll go back to Venice again and again too, I’m sure!!

    I would love if you could come to Venezuela (sadly I know it is not possible atm) and visit places like La Gran Sabana (to see El Salto Ángel), La Colonia Tovar, Los Roques, El Pico Bolívar, Laguna Mucubají, Margarita island, Los Medanos de Coro, and many other grandiose landscapes that need to be explored. Hopefully one day haha! Un abrazo.

  • This place has been on my bucket list for a while. I better get my ass in gear and just fly down there. It looks so magical!

  • Wow! This looks amazing. I’m a first time visitor here and I love the name! Your blog is my life motto, so inspired.

    In love with your pictures ! And you went to Paris and Marseille, my beautiful city, Lyon, is between them so why don’t you go there ?

    Italy is my number one place in the world I have to visit. All over the country, I want to see it all. I just finished Italian II at my college (and I loved every second of it) and don’t have room to fit more Italian into my schedule. How do y’all keep learning the language or keep it fresh?! LOVE these photos!

  • I agree, Venice is super touristy and yet… I cannot help but love it too!! I’ve been twice too, so far… Have you been to Cinque Terre? Another Italian beauty, over-flowing with tourists but definitely worth checking out.
