Straight from Turkey I stopped in for a very brief love affair with beautiful Venice. Not only was I lucky enough to quickly revisit the city but I also had the chance sneak peek experience of the Venice Film Festival thanks to the Festival’s official sponsor Disaronno. It was my first time venturing over to the tiny island of Lido, which felt like such a quaint community and somewhat ‘normal’ lifestyle compared to the floating city centre just a boat ride away. The two days flew by with a hazy, surreal feeling after exploring the city canals during the day, witnessing the buzz and commotion of the film festival by afternoon, and sipping on a few too many of my favourite sneaky cocktails while watching the sunset from the Disaronno Terrace. Prepare for an enormous photo diary and tips for Venice tomorrow!
