Ahh my favourite city in the world. I’ve been to Venice twice and it hasn’t failed to amaze me. Transport is convenient, people are friendly and the place is packed with history, what’s not to love? Not to mention the building are absolutely beautiful. Some say it’s tiny and you can be done with it in one visit, but i’ve been there twice and i haven’t fully explored the place! I guess it’s because i spend a lot of time in one area, trying my best to find out everything about it and soak in the culture. There are many tiny alleys and pathways that don’t show up on the map and i actually can find my way around! So that’s how much time i’ve spent there haha
We arrived at night, and it’s my first time arriving so late at night. Usually i get there super early in the morning, with the hustle and bustle of the fresh food markets or just simply the crowd of tourists trying to find their way around after arriving too. Photos are blurry because my hands were shivering haha it was a winter night so yea. I must say, travelling around Venice at night in the water bus was a different experience all together. It gave me slightly eerie feeling, but yet it was also a bit “Phantom of the Opera”-ish where i was in a surreal movie set, or theme park ride, and was really interesting. Our studio apartment was one of these houses above the retail outlets. Venetian buildings don’t have escalators or lifts, (they don’t ride bicycles either but that’s just fyi haha) so i had to carry my giant luggage up 4 flights of stairs yay Take me back:( Custom made Murano Glass Charm bracelets!
I’m a lucky girl
Can’t wait to plan the itinerary for the trip!! My mom’s doing the sightseeing and of course, i’m in charge of the SHOPPING. Okay materialistic or whatever, who isn’t la please, shopping makes me happy. I’m really excited to bring my books and film cameras too; totally soak up the culture of wherever i am. Maybe i could fill this space with pretty tumblr-esque pictures when i get back.
So many places i want to travel to… SO LITTLE TIME: Brazil, Spain, Whistler, Japan (again) haha okay more realistic ones for now are Thailand, HK, Batam/Bintan for wakeboarding, and a malaysia roadtrip (hopefully withoit getting mugged lol)
I get to plan 2 days of shopping in London, 1 day in Paris and 2 days in Italy, will post the rough idea i have up here later when i’m done with it! Kinda interesting to see whether it plays out according to plan or not…i’m sure it will still be wonderful though haha anywhere other than Singapore is pretty baus.
I’ll try my best to take tons of pictures and pay some sort of attention at galleries (haha no), and if i lose weight maybe tons of ootds haha going to plan my outfits (for once) (yay)
Right, my thoughts pretty much jump all over the place so if you don’t understand the language of incoherancy and confusion then this isn’t the place for you, but you are more than welcome to try^^ Afterall this is just a place to put my nonsense so i won’t forget it 10 minutes later haha
