Travel Series: Venice & Other Things.

Ahh, Venice, I think I could fall in love with you. My cancerian-water-sign heart swoons when surrounded by water - and I think I would feel right at home in Venice. Even if it is sinking! 

Cruising along in a gondola (I think everyone must do this once, even if the price is high!), eating fantastic Italian food, listening to music, drinking red wine on a warm summer night, exploring the side streets and wandering around markets. I could get lost here for days I'm sure, taking in the scenes, people, and la dolce vita. 

I think I'll stay for a few days. 


In other news, I'm moving this coming Monday back into the city back into the old apartment block I used to live in. I'm moving in with two lovely girls, one of which is a fan of the blog (yay Mal!), one of which is headed to Europe for our Summer, the European Winter (brrr!), so we have a Swiss-German girl in her room for Summer. It should be a blast to live with lovely, like-minded, positive people, and I know I thrive best in an environment like that rather than the oppressive one I have been in the last 6 months. Hopefully you will be seeing more of my own photography on the blog as well! 

What was also completely awesome was Mumford & Sons, whom I saw on Monday evening thanks to a fabulous friend! It was a bit touch and go there for a bit with tickets, but we pulled through! On Sunday I was standing about 2 feet from Marcus Mumford himself. Yes, they are amazing live. Yes, you should go see them if you ever get the chance because their stage presence is amazing. Here is a video of Little Lion Man. Yes it was amazing.
