Almost A Black and White Sunday

I stood in Venice on the Bridge of Sighs, a palace and prison on each hand

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. I often wonder why I have never been to Venice.
    Parts of Leningrad were very similar in appearance, and I have been there a few times.
    But there is something truly iconic about Venice.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. Did you see those programmes on the BBC where you were taken inside this building? And others in Florence and Naples? Fabulous programmes.

        1. Gosh you are turning into a Mrs Mop! When you have finished how about popping over here, I have an entire house that needs a bit of a spruce up 😀

  2. This puts the recent flooding in perspective. One of my University tutors, Bernard Beatty, had a passion for Byron and I caught a little of the fever, though it was the plays I enjoyed most.

    1. I would have thought Venice would be one of your short break destinations. September would be nice there, not as hot as the summer.
