You took my heart!

There's a very good reason why gondola rides are expensive - first, gondolas are handmade, only a handful are experts at it, second, the gondolier license to own or operate one is no joke, third, it's high maintenance, and physically demanding. Watching them hustle all day and night (which is even more expensive!), I respect them on a whole new level! Should you bargain still? Absolutely, but just be mindful of the facts and if you're nice to them they might even be willing to strike a pose! ;)

This is a real street, I excitingly walked through just to see what's on the other side, and it was a dead end, ha!

I couldn't believe how bright and beautiful this island was, there wasn't a single house that wasn't painted in a bright color. So when I came across this view, I had to pause and just sink into the present and capture this view forever.

A postman's cart

I literally missed the postman as he was passing by the drying clothes and into another home (one swift postman, I must admit!) as I was about to capture him in the scene. But he left his cart there, which I wasn't too fond of in the beginning but there was something about the scene that I just couldn't get over - apart from the dreamy blue house, I found the drying clothes to be so calming, and the cart, kind of just hanging out, everything was so still...

I took this picture from piazzale michelangelo square, driving up the hill, passing gorgeous, historic mansions was a treat on it's own, but our driver insisted to wait till we get to the top, "it only gets better", he said! And it surpassed my expectations! I was mesmerized by this view, I felt like I was standing back in time as I absorbed this panoramic view of the city. Bellissimo!
