If you’ve ever been to Venice during the spring and summer months, you probably know how crazy busy it gets. All the narrow streets get so busy that people traffic almost needs to be controlled, people catch each others shoulders while passing next to each other and everyone wants to take a photo of the same thing. My idea was to avoid all of this.
I really wanted to see Venice to soak it all up without that persistent person selling selfie sticks or those annoying flying and glowing things that I always fear will land on my head (you know what I mean right?) I mean, if you ask me, these street vendors should be removed from such busy squares, as I can not focus on the beauty of this incredible square hiding so many secrets and stories while being offered yet another useless device. Oh well.
Disclaimer: You are about to enter a zone of darkness. Here is a completely different post to everything you were used to on the Glam and Glitter.
As you guys know, I recently went to Venice. It was probably one of most spectacular trips to this beautiful city, because I got to see it at different times of the day. From as early as 5am to late at night, I normally always shoot photos for the blog in the morning because my photography style is very girly, airy and light, but I wanted to use this opportunity and mark two years of being a full time fashion blogger (or almost 7 all together), to publish something different.
I’ve always wanted to visit this colourful island called Burano, but in my previous two visits to Venice there just wasn’t enough time. Since June was dedicated to exploring Italy and visiting my favourite places I thought it would be amazing to check this off my wish list too.
We started the adventure around 11am, took a boat which you will see in my Venice vlog and headed to this place. Besides the colourful houses we really didnt know what to expect. If you are wondering who is we, I am referring to Dusan, my photographer and friend and myself. When we arrived I thought wow, people actually live here, in these beautiful and colourful houses, everything looked like a set in a movie.
As soon as the weather is in high plus and we hit June, Brighton starts looking like a totally different city. All the tables outside the cafes are busy and my favourite type of coffee dates take place.
You know the kind of a date that usually involves more cake than coffee, sitting with my sister in the sun, discussing so many different things and jumping from topic to topic. Recently we made this “no social media” rule when spending time together, which is making these coffee dates even more enjoyable.
We try to try a new place every time, even though we do have two or three favourites that we go to when the craving is real.
Santorini has been on my “Must visit” list for the longest time ever. I visited Greece several times and loved it so much, but have never been to Santorini. Since I visited Greece first time at the age of 16 ,with my school, I knew I wanted to go back. And so I did, several times, and so far had the pleasure of exploring places like: Athens, Thessaloniki, Paralia, Meteora, Crete, Hydra and loads of tiny islands. One thing is for sure, I really love Greek culture, Greek people and their food. Its probably one of my favourites in that part of Europe (ok, excluding my mums kitchen).
