This is what the place I grew up in looked like when I was 7 years old. There was a river and right across the river was my elementary school. It was such a beautiful place that artists always stayed there for hours to paint it on canvas. As kids we loved watching them work with oils. I can go on and on about this place, and if you are interested in the rest of the story please visit my blog, I'm going to do a post about it tonight. www.mirdinara.blogspot.com
For your next trip to Venice I highly suggest staying on Lido! You can bike and swim everywhere. It's like a big, beautiful, tropical Italian paradise. And, if you must go to Venice, it's only a 12 minute vaporetto ride away, but trust, one taste of Lido and you might not need Venice! Here is my hotel recommendation for those of you within a budget (http://www.hotelvillaparco.com/).
I studied at the Savannah College of Art and Design and fell in love with Savannah. Exploring the city by foot became a favourite pastime after living my entire life in a place where you can barely go anywhere without a car. Savannah is the perfect place for such a pastime, what with its historic architecture, and its Southern charm where utter strangers will often exchange greetings. While I have a lot of cherished places there, my absolute favourite route goes through these three squares down in Bull St. You can find out more about this illustration in my blog.
The Venissa estate is an ancient walled vineyard restored by the Bisol family that dominates the Island of Mazzorbo and gives its name to the restaurant/ostello structure that is managed by the renowned Bellunese chef Paola Budel.
The Venissa estate also plays host to vegetable gardens, orchards and a fish farm which emphasize the enogastronomic culture of the Lagoon. In this authentic natural environment and agricultural park - created within the territory of the Lagoon Park institution and owned by the Municipality of Venice - it is possible to stay in any of the six welcoming rooms that overlook the lagoon and the estate.
The capital of California is packed with varied art and architecture, residents with varied nationalities, more trees per capita than Paris, and is in driving distance to some of the best places in the U.S. Even after living here for just 1-1/2 years, I continually find something new to love about it.
