Venezia/Venice/Venedig

My familiy and I usually go to Italy once a year (at least) - we love that country!

One day is always reserved for Venice (established in 5th century) - I´m impressed by the beauty of this city every year anew!

Please come with me on a short trip to Venice! You won´t regret it!





Isn´t the architecture just great?! Have you ever seen such gorgeous chimneys?!





We had lunch in this picturesque Trattoria...


The gondolas are so pompous!


This is the famous "Rialto" bridge over the "Canal Grande"...

We love to sit at the edge of the Canal Grande at the bottom of the bridge and enjoy the sun... people who know me will spot me on the picture...


Now, inspired by the opulence and pompous beauty of this city, I want to share with you a wedding card - a very "blingy" one... to do this city justice!
If the famous Giacomo Casanova (1725-1798) would have ever decided to marry, I would have sent him this one ;-)

Thanks for travelling with me!!

  1. Awesome! Both the photos and your card. The card is beyond beautiful. You did an execellent job. And your photography is also fantastic. I especially like the one looking down a canal and seeing the buildings and the smaller bridge. I've always wanted to go to Italy myself. Hugs, dj

  23. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I
    found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
    said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
