A ❤️ letter to Venice

Venice has this transcendent atmosphere. It is a place where when you stop and listen, you can hear so many languages. Smelling the delicious garlicky smells of a pasta dish or fresh pizza coming out of a wood-burning stove. Taking a walk, getting lost, and running a hand against the stones of buildings that have been standing for centuries.

A floating city full of boat-filled waterways. With way more bridges than I want to count. Balconies, wisteria, hanging laundry, tourists.

The city full of romance.

Full of adventure.

Life.

Here is my love letter to Venice, in picture form.

    If you are in Venice, you should consider taking a day trip to nearby Burano. It’s a short boat ride away and one of the most beautiful places in all of Europe!

      I have lived in Venice for two years and your photos has just made me super nostalgic!
      Living there is a whole different experience and all the people I have met who had lived there feel the same way 🙂

      Can’t wait to be able to go back!
