We sailed (and then flew!) out of Venice today.
Because Carnevale is coming to an end the airport boats were so packed they couldn’t let half the people on.
There were screaming arguments. And I saw at least three people miss their flights.
Honestly, Venice, put more boats on this ONE day! Otherwise, everything was great.
We flew to London today, the city I did a lot of my growing up in, and a place that is not the most beautful anything, but somewhere I still feel attached to.
We are staying in the middle of Covent Garden, and I have no decent picture, but this is a view from my bed!
Two quick phone shots from our last day in Venice for Carnevale. I LOVE the first pair (I’ve seen that man around a few times, and he’s such a performer), but there’s something that makes me think the second two deserve the award for best costumes of 2017!
Off to London tomorrow.
Sometimes you just have to sit at a tourist restaurant to get a view like this one of the Rialto Bridge!
Tomorrow all the crowds will be pouring in, so this is as quiet as it will be.
We can usually see the Rialto Bridge from our apartment, but it’s too foggy this morning. The mist is much thicker than it looks in the picture!
Just a quick phone shot from where we had lunch yesterday. Step a few metres from the main thoroughfares and you can enjoy Venice without the tourists.
It is another cold and misty day, but look at the costumes!
Just a couple of shots off the phone from the spectacular building decorated with Tintoretto’s paintings.
It was SO cold when we were there yesterday, and those gorgeous marble floors didn’t make us any warmer!
I loved the fabric of these costumes. The orange and black feathers, not so much (those are actually the colours of the Russian terrorists in Ukraine!).
