Venice Photography

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on August 13, 2011

When I started the blog, I intended on posting photography from each stop along our Mediterranean honeymoon, however that fell to the wayside and I only got through a couple of cities. My goal is to get through all of them over the next few months and highlight the best memories from each place. We literally have thousands of honeymoon pictures sitting on our computers right now. Eric had recently purchased the DSLR camera in 2007 and the honeymoon (early-mid September 2008) marked the first time that we really got into photography. We spent the trip snapping pictures of everything that caught our eyes.

After two long flights (and some questionable spelling), we made it to our hotel about 16 hours later to gorgeous Venice. We were up for over 30 hours straight without sleeping and were so excited we decided not to go to sleep at all that day. It was a total adrenaline rush to finally be on our honeymoon together. Once the sun rose on the plane, it was as if our body clocks adjusted and we didn’t feel as tired as we should have.

Ok, maybe I was a bit tired.

We loved every second of Venice during the two days we were there. We weren’t sure what to expect because we had heard some negative things about it, but it completely blew us away. Luckily we didn’t have any problems with flooding or stinky water while we were there. The weather was a gorgeous 27C-28C and not a cloud in the sky. I really didn’t expect something this beautiful and as a romantic person, I absolutely adored this city. We walked it all both days from dawn to late nights and saw all the sights. It was a very romantic way to start off the honeymoon!

Our hotel was fun and authentic- only 12 rooms, quaint, and very ‘Venice’ feel to it. And the bed was a slab of concrete, but I was too excited to care!

Looks like a great trip! I liked Venice, but found it suuuuper smelly when I was there. I definitely got lost more than once too, but that’s the fun of it!

The best part of a wedding (aside from the marriage, of course) is definitely the honeymoon!

I love traveling, and am actually looking forward to my own plane ride this evening. I’m hoping for good movies!

Venice is somewhere I have always wanted to visit but all the neagtive things I have heard have put us off actually going. It’s reassuring to hear that they were unfounded for you and has re-sparked my interest. Photos are gorgeous xxx

You should absolutely go and visit! I lived in Italy for six months and Venice is by far one of my favorite cities. I had an amazing time and you will be blow away by the beauty…you just have to be a little careful at night. But that goes for anywhere.

Beautiful photos! What a lovely honeymoon!

Hey Angela! Just wanted to say I’ve been following your blog for a little while now, and I’ve really enjoyed some of the recipes you’ve created! Just discovered the VOO last night, SO GOOD. I live in Germany, and supermarkets are closed on Sunday, so I’m out of soy milk. But I have a coffee flavored soy milk in the fridge, so I’m experimenting and subbing the milk with that. I’m excited to see how it tastes!

Also, congratulations on your wedding and honeymoon!

Thank you Heather! Im glad that you are enjoying the recipes :) Im sure coffee flavoured soy milk would be delicious! Ive made a ‘mocha’ flavour before.

This is such a fun idea! I remember my honeymoon…barely! It was such a whirlwind!! Going back through the pictures in more detail is a really fun idea :-)

Gorgeous photos! I’m in love with Italy and can’t wait to go back. We didn’t go to Venice last time, so hopefully I get there this time. I’m excited to see more pics from your honeymoon.

Oooh I love Venice so much, I had prepared myself for all the downsides – the smell, the crowds, the annoying Gondoliers etc., but you can avoid so many of the irritating things quite easily, just a few steps away from the main tourist areas and you are down a deserted calle, and getting lost (even my map-expert other half found the place utterly bewildering). I have been twice and definitely hope to go again in the next year or so finances permitting …the first time we flew to Paris from Dublin, and got the sleeper train to Venice. It was wonderful to just wake up as the train was nearing Venice and you could see it on the horizon. Second time around we flew over which is definitely the cheaper option, but it was nice to do it the fancy way just that one time ;)

I loved Venice when I was there as a teenager. Some day I plan on going back with my husband. Just the other day I was trying to describe the romantic feel of the city to a co-worker and it rekindled my love of Italy.

I went to Venice with my family. It is a beautiful city but soooo expensive. It wasn’t the favorite spot on our tour of the Mediterranean/Adriatic Coast, but I did love the architecture and the history. Hot as heck though. :)

I love all of your photos of Venice, it is one of my favorite city! I have been reading your blog for almost a year now and love everything you post about. I actually spent 6 months living in Italy and I am in the process of posting all of my travel photos to my newly created blog as well, it is a process but it is so great to look back and remember all the great memories :)
