Studio Friday: Travels
I have traveled many places in my life, and hope to travel many more. I have traveled just about all over Canada and the USA. I have been to Europe and found my favorite place on earth to be Italy. From its majestic hilltop villages to its breathtaking beauty of its beaches. My favorite city has to be hands down Venice. We stayed in a hotel right on the canal, in our room we able to see the boats traveling up and down the canal doing there daily business. The water buses, the Italians going to work, we even saw a funeral, with all the mourners in there own boats following the casket. we heard and saw amazing sights and sounds. The smell of the city was something not to be forgotten (no not the canal), cooking , oils, people all mixed together in those tight little alleyways they call streets. The colors' and history could boggle your mind. The ride on the canal at night on a Gondola, hearing the quiet looking into lives' of people as you passed by their house truly amazing. Nothing there was new, it was all old and full of history, I could have stayed there for months and still not taken everything. I hope one day to go back there with my sketchbook and my digital camera and record these amazing sights.
