Solo In Venice!

I spotted her from the vaporetto on my way back from Santa Maria della Salute. Her lone self on the balcony of the Palazzo Genovese (now the Centurion Palace Hotel) overlooking the Grand Canal, and juxtaposed against the glorious details of the church beyond. What a fabulous vantage point from which to survey the panorama below! I admit I felt a wee bit envious.


Stay tuned for more from Venice when I return from a short trip to Coonoor over the weekend.

  1. Really beautiful shot, Madhu. I bet you have got quite a few amazing ones from your solo wandering and explorations. 🙂
    Must admit I am not a fan of solo travelling (neither in groups, just another person is enough) but Italy is one of the few places I wouldn’t mind to return to alone now and then. There is something about that country …probably in the air…for me! 🙂

      1. As it needed to be, of course! I was lucky to have been there for the Festa della Salute, joining the quiet, candle-lit procession across the votive bridge to the Salute – a treasured memory, especially as it was back in the “no camera” days.

        1. That must have been amazing Meredith! I would love to plan my return to co-incide with the festa, but our schedules don’t always permit it.

        2. I know what you mean, Madhu,but there are lots of small festas that you could centre a trip around – or a concert/recital season … By the way, I’ve stumbled upon a blog – Beyond the Bridge ( by a Venetian girl who’s gone to live on the ‘mainland’ and blogs with her father … it’s delightful.
