As you read this I am in Venice pinching myself because I can’t believe my luck. It will be cold in February but hopefully that will reduce the “aroma” from the canals and keep the number of other tourists down to minimum.
I’ve always wanted to visit Venice and mentioned this to Portia during our Skype chat over Christmas. She generously invited me to join her, the lovely Jin and their fellow Aussie mate, during their time there. They are on a European trip comprising 11 cities in 7 countries over about 5 weeks. I had just been on an expensive transatlantic trip but I’ve learnt that when an opportunity comes up in life I need to grab it with both hands.
If you missed it, you can catch up on some photos from Portia’s triumph at Perfume Lovers London last month here.
I won’t be around to answer comments until the weekend but feel free to share a destination that’s on your bucket-list or your own experience of Venice.
