Gwyn and I along the canal
The gorgeous buildings along the canal!
Whenever I go overseas, I have to buy at least one book. I love finding illustrated travel books and seeing how other artists capture these beautiful cities – I have a towering stack of travel books at home! One that I picked up in Venice was so beautiful I just had to have it as soon as I spotted it. Capturing the streets and sights of Venice, artist Jiro Taniguchi beautifully depicts this stunning Italian city. Flicking through the pages while sipping on a delicious Aperol Spritz was the perfect way to start my trip!
We were only in Venice a few days, but I think I lost count of how many times I had to stop and take photos of the canals – I was just so captivated by the history and beauty of it all. It’s simply too easy to get lost in the splendour of Venice and I can’t wait to return again.
