I stood in Venice on the Bridge of Sighs, a palace and prison on each hand
~Byron “Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage”
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.

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
Still time Pete.
Just need the money now. Julie works part-time, and I live on my pensions. Still, we might be able to save for it, one day. x
It’s an expensive place. I still think you’d enjoy Lisbon for that BIG birthday.
Isn’t it a wonderful sight, however traumatic for those inside? 😕 xx
Did you see those programmes on the BBC where you were taken inside this building? And others in Florence and Naples? Fabulous programmes.
Yes! I have them recorded. 😃 Back from our walk. Just about to mop the kitchen floor and do the loos and we’re all sorted xx
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 😀
All done. Slow cooker on. Domestic goddess my middle name. Heading for the airport soon 😃😃 xx
Have a good flight back to England, and that everything is sorted soon x
Ah, yes. Only had one day there though.
I’ve only had a few hours!
A lovely composition
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.
One of these days, hopefully before it disappears under the rising waters.
I’ve never been, I wouldn’t say no, if all the other tourists cleared off!!!
I would have thought Venice would be one of your short break destinations. September would be nice there, not as hot as the summer.
