Project 52: Week 6 and 7

I didn't get back from our trip until late on Sunday, so didn't get chance to post, despite having picked out one of my favourite pictures from our trip. So please accept this double entry this week, and hopefully I will also do a separate post with some more pictures from our travels.




After Paris, we travelled on to Venice for a few days. We wandered around the tiny streets, enjoying getting lost and chancing upon views like this. We had been trying to cross back over the Grand Canal, and whilst this particular road didn't lead us across the water, it did provide a fabulous quiet jetty to stand for a few moments and enjoy this incredible city, savour the magic of turning a corner and finding crystal clear water lapping against buildings and boats transporting people from place to place.




The week at home since our trip has managed to retain the air of celebration, despite The Husband and I returning to work. On Friday, we went to Manchester House as my parents had treated us to a meal there for one of my birthday presents. We tried the eight course Tasting Menu, and had a wonderful meal. This was our beautiful, and delicious dessert.

  1. I love that first photograph - the colour of the water contrasting with the buildings is stunning, and a perfect spot for a photo. You lucky thing going to Paris and Venice - I am a wee bit jealous ;)

  3. My husband and I are always going back and forth on whether we should go to Venice. I want to, if only because I have such a romanticized vision of it. He hesitates, because he has heard that it is pricey and the food isn't great (can you tell who is the practical one? : ) ). Your photograph makes me want to go even more, Katie.

    Happy belated birthday! xx

    1. We had some great food. It is expensive in parts but I think possible to eat on a budget, and plenty to explore for free too! xx
