The dream to be someone else, turns a boring life into a mysterious reality.

Venice the City of Mystery and Love

The rays of the sun hitting the water in the canal make it shimmer like liquid gold, while the reflection on the walls on the buildings turn into so many mysterious moving images. The gondolier slowly paddles the gondola forward with his slow well measured strokes, while at the same time languid movements, as if nothing else matters and the destination does not exist. Two lovers hiding their identity behind masks recline in the soft cushions with their arms around each other in a tender embrace. This is the scene that I remember so well from the last time I was here in Venice, the city of fun, love and mystery. Today I am here to relive the excitement and ecstasy once again. That special something that only the magical old and romantic city of Venice has and hides so well. Will I ever be able to discover its secret and make it mine for ever?

Carnevale-Let Us All Be Merry

As I step out of the train, the beauty of the ancient city of Venice surrounds me in all its magical and mysterious beauty: it is Carnevale, that magical week before Lent, when everybody forgets everything for one week, except to have fun and be merry, while hiding behind a mask and a costume which will not reveal their real identity. Then suddenly, s f invisible wings have been attached to f my ankles, I fly towards the bus that will take me to my ‘Pensione’ where I shall change into my costume and alluring mask. It is then that I shall turn back the clock in time and be whoever my mask will want to.
It’s dusk, the sun has gone done as I emerge from the doorway into the narrow street. My real personality no longer exist; in its place a Lady of the 18th century has her over.

The Mystery Continues

Who is she? No one knows or will ever know, she has no name and no age as she mingles with all the other unknown and merry people, who, the same as her are there to forget everything about the real world and revel in one of fantasy, excitement and pleasures for just a few days of merriment.
As she is swallowed and dragged along by the dancing crow she feels a gentle pull to her hand. She turns her head and looks into two dark eyes; the mystery continues … In this one week Venice will never reveal the mystery of its masked people.
