Venice. The courtyard of the Doge’s Palace, facing the San Marco Basilica. It was such a hot – over 95 degrees – day with humidity soaring. But we were determined to see St. Mark’s Square. We just couldn’t leave Venice without it. I was lucky to be able to get this shot as the square itself was wall to wall people. Next time I visit Venice, it will not be in the summer months…. this was early June.
Hello. It’s me. Yes, it’s been awhile but I’m back! Since I last posted I’ve been on many journeys. Up and down in Spain, Tuscany and Rome again, Venice for the first time and to the Friuli region of Italy. The photo above is from Venice where the Spritz reigns king. Here you can see some examples of traditional cicchetti – small snacks or side dishes. They come in so many versions, you could exist on cicchetti your entire trip and not get tired of it. I’ve been posting quite a few photos these days on my Instagram account (@bethbeeman) of my travels. Check it out if you have the time. Meanwhile, I’m back here. Great to reconnect.
