the city of my dreams

can you imagine going somewhere without roads, where everything that isn't buildings or people is water. when you step out of your house you're feasting your eyes on gorgeous scenery consisting of canals and ancient buildings. this is venice, italy - the city of my dreams.
when i hear about italy, i usually get the idea that the water is murky, there's a bad smell in the air, and that there is no sense of hygiene for miles on end. upon researching it a little more, i discovered that venice is actually a lot cleaner than people claim the rest of italy is. the water in the above picture does look a bit murky, but the beauty of it cannot be denied.
i'm not usually a lover of travelling, having done so much of it throughout my life, as it does get tiring looking at scenery, but this is just one place i can't spend my life without.


as a second on my list, after visiting the magnificent city of water, i would love spending some time at the ancient pyramids of egypt to marvel at their spectacular craftsmanship, enjoy the desert, ride a camel and dress up in traditional arabian gear.



where are your dreams taking you? is there any place you feel you have to visit, or even more - plan to live in? i'd love to hear anyone and everyone's thoughts.

  16. Like you, I would love to visit Venice someday! It really looks so beautiful! I'd also love to visit Egypt too - The pyramids looks spectacular and I'd love to witness the beauty of them first hand. Another place I love is New York. I visited it a few years ago and fell in love with the city - I'd love to move there someday! Lovely post! :-)
