European Highlights: Venice

Venice, Italy. Floating / sinking, let's hope it sticks around for a good while longer. Full of history, rich in tradition. It was funny as I was wandering about these age old cities, wondering what the streets would have been like in an earlier time. Street stalls, fashion and now the modern equivalent. Gypsies were certainly common, I found it some times a little hard finding something a little unique, handmade from a local. Built upon tradition and not mass-produced rubbish. Apart from that, I enjoyed being there, in a place completely different to anywhere I have ever been and for me that was enough. More than sufficient, happily enjoying the company of my fellow travellers and time taking photographs.

"I don't often visit Venice, but when I do, I only shoot black & white film." I was kind of running out. Fortunately in Prague, I managed to pick some more up :)

Waterway. What a way to go, by boat.

Tour Guide / Group. Once we arrived at the most point of Venice, we all split into smaller groups, lunched, foraged (for masquerade masks) and ran into the occasional Minotaur as we attempted to navigate the mysterious labyrinth of pathways and footbridges to return back to the accomm.

Sea Lane. A perfect day in Venice by seeing the sea.

St Mark's Square, which floods during the day. At around lunch the sea started making it's way through the drains. "Opposite Drains". Odd.
