Venice: the famous city of water is arguably one of the most photographed city on the planet. And it’s not hard to imagine why with the picturesque canals and fairy-tale like bridges – even their lunch spots are picture perfect! Needless to say during my trip there my camera had been working non-stop trying to capture every corner of this magnificent city – I even ran out of batteries twice!

I had probably averaged about 300 photos per day (that’s counting our last day there which was a half day) and it will take hours for one to go through my entire album. So instead I pluck the best of the corps and planted them right here for your eyes:

First glimpse of the grand canal lined with beautiful flowers (my sister’s eagerness can be sensed from the fact that she barged into this photo!). We were even rewarded with a misty morning!
