Travel: Venice, Italy

I had been to Venice once before, visiting all the must see’s. This time my purpose was to meet up with a dear old friend. A quick visit wasn’t really possible as I soon realized being embarrassingly late from the prearranged meeting point. Eventually making it we had a great time. After racing through the small alleyways getting to our rendezvous we enjoyed some food while catching up. I wasn’t on a schedule getting back to Slovenia so I managed to take my time taking pictures while navigating back through the city. And yes getting lost a few more times than I would like to admit…

On this visit I saw a different type of Venice. Quiet alleys and decaying architecture with peoples laundry drying amidst it all. People who live through their routine while just a few confusing turns around an odd number of corners there are millions of tourists exploring the sinking city. I saw a quiet Venice as well as the crowded Venice, I saw the beauty and I saw the fracture. And I had some delicious ice cream 🙂

Starting back towards Slovenia were caught up with the rain again. Impressive skies and somewhat wet toes.
