I am such a lucky girl to be able to travel for work I love to do! This time I’m in little town called Fayence in the mountains a half an hour from Cannes. I had two morning to enjoy this amazing place. Both morning was raining 🙂 But who cares when you are in South of France 🙂 Just before heading to the wedding I went to have a breakfast and found a market in the center. Right away they got me trying vegetable chips and topenades (olive paste). OMG these taste incredible!!! Later drunk my tea and went to the near by town to meet the bride. The next day after the wedding came back again to the same place for topenade 🙂 but it wasnt there 🙁 French people don’t work on sundays! The town was totally empty and all shops closed, so no breakfast for me 🙂
Going to Venice was another to do thing on a list while in Italy. Obviously there is so much to see here, but need to make priorities 🙂 So Venice was one of them. Arrived there night before and spend all day walking around in this beautiful town. And again, make sure you wear comfortable shoes 🙂 because there is plenty of walking to do. When you think, is not as big as Rome, but you cant get a metro. Of course you could use the water bus or water taxi, but its not the same as scrolling those tiny streets and cute bridges. Also cant stop for an image, if you are in the water taxi 🙂
Now I totally understand why Clooney got married here 🙂 It is really one special and magical place for wedding.
Its very easy to get lost in Venice 🙂 it is like a huge labyrinth town! Of course we followed the crowd, because if we didn’t we might end up in the trap 🙂 This couple of weeks has been a bit windy, in Rome now in Venice. And our gondola driver said, that is very difficult to row in such a conditions. Hopefully weather is changing there. So if you can choose when to go to Venice, you should absolutely do that in summer 🙂
I hope you enjoy the images! And if you’ve been there, tell us what was your experience.
February is big festivity month for the ones who live in Tuscany. All dressed up in various costumes, from nun to superman they all heading to the streets to dance, eat, drink and have fun! So as Im spending my winter in Tuscanny, beach town called Viareggio, they also have their own Carnival of Viareggio! It is considered amongst the most renowned carnival celebrations in both Italy and Europe. Its main characteristic is given by the parade of floats and masks, usually made of paper-pulp, depicting caricatures of popular people, such as politicians, showmen and sportsmen. The parade is held on the Viareggio avenue located alongside the local beach. Its actually quite old carnival, it all started in 1873.
I cant get enough of Italy! Pisa stole my heart! It’s architecture, streets, food and river view is amazing and of-course the famous Pisa Tower. I did not do that epic shot, holding the leaning Pisa tower :), because there are so many people trying to take that shot 🙂 Of course I completely understand them, if you are there you’ve got to help Pisa tower to hold there for a little longer 🙂 I took these images in Christmas time, so the Christmas tree is there and a lady who hand draw on the Christmas tree decorations.
Have you been to Pisa? And what was your experience there?
I’ve been to Florence maybe 7 years ago and I was so happy I got to go back again! It is one beautiful place, with such a glorious architecture and amazing view! These amazing view are from the tower of Cathedral of Florence. I think winter is a perfect time of the year to be a tourist. It is not as crowded as it is in summer and is not hot for walk up to the top of the tower 🙂 We went all the way up and incredible Florence opened up to us! This city has one the spectacular view and beautiful rooftops!
Italy I <3 U
