My mum and dad flew to venice today and oh how excited I am for them! Venice makes my heart go funny, it really is my favourite place in the world. As a child I used to dream that I could live in a water world and swim to school and to the shops and then I went to venice and realised that someone had made a place like that!
Best moments in Venice include:
My first ever trip down the Grande Canal with Kate, my first trip down the Grande Canal with Tom in the dark (I like the Grande Canal), eating delicate cakes and drinking espresso, buying wine in plastic water bottles, visiting deserted venetian islands in April in a blizzard, sitting on Peggy Guggenheim’s patio (on the Grande Canal) in the July sunshine and hearing about all the champagne she used to drink there (they only found out when the canal was dredged and thousands of glasses and bottles were found), walking through Venice at 6am and watching the boat dustmen drinking brandy, visiting in the cold just before Christmas and watching christmas trees being delivered by boat.
I wouldn’t want to live there though, there isn’t really that much to do and the water is too dirty to swim to school.
