Ti amo Italia…
… and I’ll come back as soon as possible! Cause you beautiful and easy going country stole my heart from the first day that I’ve got to known you. As a self employed, it’s sometimes really hard for me to calm down and totally relax. Not even on weekends (which is obviously pretty hard as wedding photographer) but while vactions it sometimes feels more like counting the days I „could“ relax instead of just doing so. When we visited this delightful country, Italy, las year, it was kind of the opposite. I felt so „on vacation“ like these days when I was a child and didn’t have to stress about anything at all. I could just enjoy our holidays and felt so belonging to these places we’ve visited. The people were gorgeous, the food was delicious and the weather was sunny and warm.
Our first destination was Venice.
There have been lots of people telling me all their different opinions about Venice but I tried to experience this place as neutral as possible. Sure, it’s an old place, our hotel room was small and the view out of the window was just a wall. But, who cares… I’m not going anywhere in the world for staying in a hotel room and I’ve experienced much more worst rooms then this one. What I loved about Venice wasn’t only the old building and this „movie“ flair. I loved the water streets, to just take a boat (or tourist ferry) and driving trough the water streets with beautiful views to all sides you’re looking at. It’s also perfekt that Venice is just a small „island“ and that you can walk all the small streets and not necessarily need any taxi or transfers. We just used the water bus to have a kind of overview. The food was also so great and obviously it wasn’t hard to find any great italian restaurant ; ) What I loved was a pizza with cream cheese, walnuts and honey. Mhhh so yummie.
