Weekend Photo Theme is a weekly photography article where either Dale or Franca will choose a theme, select 5 pictures to sum that theme up & tie them together with their interests of Architecture, Art, Design & Travel.

June 2011, Franca surprises me for my birthday with two return tickets to Venice – The City of Canals.

Cue *major girly giggle*.

We went, I experienced only my FOURTH journey abroad &decided whilst I was there that travelling is for me. It was the experience of seeing things that are new & uncommon to me that made me feel so electric & alive, made me discover a side to myself I never knew, discovered that travelling with Franca is an experience to behold.
Whilst there, we took some travel bloggers advice & travelled across the main canal via Traghetto – I’m instantly in love. Sitting on the Traghetto with your bottom so close to the water, your fingers able to touch the water (not recommended) & I want to take one again going back the same way. They’re cheap too.

Anyway, I love those small little boats, I hope you love these other small boats too.
