Pining for Venezia...

Bridge of Sighs, originally uploaded by Headphonaught.

For some reason I'm pining for Italia... and Venezia in particular.

I read this article about a chap who "drove" an Amphicar up the Grand Canal... and it reminded me of what an awesome place Venezia is.

My colleague is heading to Cavallino... which is 11km away from Lido di Jesolo. I'm envious... yes... but more glad for her. Its a fantastic part of the world... especially in Venezia herself.

This is our UK year... we alternate our breaks... one year in the UK the next abroad... and I'm eager to see North Wales... in about 4 weeks time.

The weather here in Motherwell is glorious... and Olly smells all "holiday" with the coconut oil we purchased in Jesolo last year... which doesn't help but is a wonderfully sensuous experience. I love to be reminded of beautiful experiences by sights/sounds/smells.

I guess rereading "Angels and Demons" doesn't help either. I tend to read Dan Brown on holiday... and with it set in Roma... well... we went to the Eternal City on our honeymoon. We need to go back.

Where do you pine for?

Miriam is wearing a tee Olly bought in '97... when in Sorrento for our honeymoon. Another reminder of a beautiful & special part of the world.

Knapdale, Argyll, especially now its also beaver country.
Loch o' the Lowes and the Ospreys.
Skye and Mull/ Iona.
Geneva, Malta and Lanzarote.

Hopefully will add Florence/ Tuscany and Copenhagen to the list; not much, eh?

I pine for the ocean. Thousands of miles from it now.
