What a fun thread. Â Makes me wanna pack my bags. Â Rome's been well-represented here, so I'll show a few from my first trip to Venice. Â The first one is actually from the window of the train, of the Swiss Alps. Â Sorry for the blurry trees, but we were going pretty fast.
A less glamorous view of Venice's Grand Canal that you usually see. Â I liked the brightly colored boats though, juxtaposed against the somewhat "worn" buildings along the canal.
I didn't notice until I started posting that a lot of my pics from my travels are more "real" than post-card-ish. Â For instance, not all Gondaliers are 24 with Josh Grobin's voice. Â This sweet little guy had been doing this work for most of his adult life...
...in this, his "boat"
Anyway, enjoy the brief trip to Venice. Â I'll be back after the Derby with pix from my horseback tour across Ireland.
