photographs from italy.

I cannot tell you how it felt to float down the Canals of Venice by gondole. I am not even able to describe to you how delectable the gelati was. Not because I don't want to. Simply because I've never been.

These are my dad's photographs. He took them on a school trip (he's a teacher) a few years back. I remember that breezy summer evening after he came home. Laptop in tow, we found a picnic table in the park. We then proceeded to go through every single photograph he had taken. With the photos, he shared stories - and then some sweet little gifts he had brought back for my sister and I. Ever since that night, I have had such wanderlust for Italy. But until the day comes where I see the country with my own eyes, I'll live vicariously through photographs.

















tanto amore,

  2. I've been blessed with opportunities to go to Venice and Rome this year, both were beautiful. And the gelato was amazing. Scarcely a day went by without the consumption of it.

  15. Such lovely pictures! I went to Venice when I was eleven, and ever since then pictures of it have always attracted me and made me yearn to go back. I don't remember much of when I was there, so it would be amazing to travel there again!

  16. Believe me when I say Italy is AMAZING! I went on a school trip and it was so stunning- the sun setting over the sea every night, the gorgeous ice creams, the rustic houses. Amazing :) x

    And it seems photography runs in the blood of your family! Your dad is so talented.

  28. Amazing!! Italy is so beautiful and your dad captured it so well. :) I want to go there too someday. England is at the top of my list of where I want to travel. I don't think I go more than a day without dreaming about travelling there. Hopefully within the next few years my dreams will come true. :)
