Oh how long have I waited to go to Venice! This famed city of the canals have been on my HG travel list for the longest of times. The stories, the romanticism, it sparks a young girl’s imagination indeed.
It is a peculiar city, crumbling and decaying, clinging tenaciously to its lineage. A ghost of its past my father remarked. I wished I could’ve seen Venice as it was 20 years ago, unravaged by the tourism and the cheap thrills attached to such an industry.
So charming though. Such style and intricacies in everything. I love being able to peer in through windows and marvel at all the lovely things inside. Stepping through lane-ways between stone brick walls, hearing the waves crash against the piers ringing the city. And while it is fantastic to be with my papa, I kind of wished a special someone would be with me. Perhaps another time 😉
