Mornings Away: V E N I C E, Italy

December 6, 2016 § Leave a comment

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 presetVenice has an astonishing palette: pastels mixed with blues mixed with grays. I visited in the cold spring, and I’m now turning to those colors to get me through the cold winter (it is coming, I can feel it).

Looking back, I realize that I only posted photos from Murano & Burano, and Caffè Florian. I left out Venice’s best part: the water. The sinking buildings. The bright, bright blue.

Caffè Florian

In 1720, Floriano Francesconi opened a caffè in Venice’s Piazza San Marco… And it’s beautiful. Pretty astonishing that nearly three-hundred years later, the caffè still stands and is recognized as one of Venice’s gems.

I knew I’d at least have to sit in one of the oldest cafes in Europe, but I don’t think I quite prepared myself for what I was actually going to drink I ordered just the Bicerin (coffee, chocolate, and cream) and was full when I left. That stuff is thick.

I’m a firm believer in the power of coffee, and where you drink it can be just as important as the caffeine itself. Today I’m not in a seventeenth century landmark. I’m somewhat buried in work, school, and various creative projects. I’m tired. It’s Monday. My apartment is definitely not emblazoned with golden cherubs, but it is perfectly okay. Just photos of this place calms me.
