I'm back with day three of my Venice diaries! Sorry for the delay, but I was in Egypt (more to come on that later).

On the thursday, we decided to head outside the city walls towards some of the smaller surrounding islands.

After a late start, we set off for Burano on a swelteringly hot €18 water taxi.

Venice Day 1 / Canale di San Marco

This week, I went to Venice.

As I sit typing, my family are watching Rio on TV. England vs Italy are playing in the world cup in an hour and they’re getting in a Brazilian (crikey) state of mind. What better time to write about my trip to the gondola capital of the world than right now?

We arrived on the other side of a flight and a bus to a beautiful, beaming Venetian day.
