Returning to work after twenty years, loving books, tea shops, rose & violet creams and life in the north....

Bel's boyfriend was one of fifty brave souls who cycled from Geneva to Venice in aid of Kidney Research. Not being so brave, indeed being rather lazy, we flew to Venice to meet him.
Alex had no idea that Bel would be at the finishing line and it was a very touching reunion!
So, what about Venice?
Bellinis at Harry's Bar, sublime pasta at a hidden away trattoria, circumnavigating the island on a vaporetto, gelati and Camparis at the Lido, walking the warren of streets and alleys, St Marks's Byzantine splendour, an exhilarating water taxi ride to the airport and more. I loved it.
