Our last day in Venice we decided to take a boat tour to the islands of Murano, Burano & Torcello. If you don’t already know, Murano is home of Murano Glass. Burano is famous for Lace and I can honestly say I have no idea what Torcello is famous for. The island only had 50 people living on it. But that is the island where I lost my sunglasses.
I just love how the buildings look like they are built right out of the water.
We had a very quick demo on how glass is made, but there were so many people in front of my that I couldn’t get a clear shot.
Jimmy and I went to San Francisco, Napa & Sonoma a few years ago with some friends. While at a winery we found a painting by a local artist that we fell in love with but didn’t buy. To this day we still talk about how we should have bought that painting. Fast forward a few years later and instead of passing up on the vase below we splurged and bought it! It’s the first piece of “art” we’ve bought together. I can’t wait until it arrives!
Burano was my favorite island. I loved the colors and the peaceful surroundings.
This is probably my favorite picture from the entire trip.
Torcello. Like I said not much on this island!
* I did a little better with remembering to take landscapes on this leg of the trip! Probably because we were stuck in a boat for most of the day.
Next up, Florence.
