Venice seems like a life time ago, even though it was only last September. These pictures make me realize how much I miss traveling and what a beautiful city Venice is. Devoid of tourists, great weather, and open restaurants. It’s the simple pleasures these pictures convey. And it’s also this cheer which is currently missing. Maybe not so much the lack of tourists, which is ongoing everywhere all over Europe. But the nice weather and the open restaurants and shops are sorely missed.
Let’s look on the bright side though, because there is just no other way to get through it, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. And this is not the vaccine, since it might take forever, but summer is definitely coming this year. And then we can once again meet outside and be merry. Until then, let’s enjoy Venice. Yours, Pollybert
Just recently I watched the series ‘The Real War of Thrones‘ and one episode was about the religious war in France which culminated in the St. Bartholomew’s Day massacre and eventually with a protestant on French throne. Of course Henry of Navarre had to convert, otherwise he would not have been accepted by the French nobles, but at least he started the Bourbon dynasty. It didn’t say why and how his armor came to the Doge’s Palace but I found it very intriguing nonetheless.
