  1. Young mothers in Campo San Stefano at five in the afternoon, visiting and watching their little girls jumping rope.
  2. Intricate wrought iron street lamps at Palazzo Grassi.
  3. Post-Carnivale confetti clustered in the recesses of steps on the bridges in San Marco.
  4. A thirty-something sandwich shop worker laughing as he slices meats for the lunch crowd in Campo San Vio.
  5. AC/DC’s “Back in Black” playing on the intercom at the Punto Simply grocery.
  6. A seagull resting on a terra cotta rooftop at T Fondaco dei Tedeschi.
  7. A woman jogging in tank and tights along the Zattere waterfront before dawn on a Tuesday.
  8. Prayer candles burning in red votives inside Santa Maria della Salute.
  9. The murmur of gondoliers conversing on a Saturday night outside the Rialto COOP grocery.
  10. Sensible, durable, unadorned shoes and boots; not a high-heel in sight.

I spent a week in Venice a few months ago and tried to notice details— large and small. To read about more things you’ll find in Venice in March, click here.

    What a fun approach to traveling. So efficient, yet the images you create are expansive. I am so wordy when I write about traveling. To each his own, I guess. But now you’ve got me thinking….

      Yes, I had been meaning to write about this trip since March, but I was too busy with school. And then summer came and I just decided to list my memories and observations. It was rather freeing to take this approach. I might try something more “prosaic” later, but for now… Thanks for commenting!

    I love lists. I could really see the life swirling around you in Venice. It makes me want to travel!

    Venice was wonderful! One thing I wish I had known was that I needed to bring some great walking shoes!
