Venezia is built on 120 small islands connected by 400 bridges that cross 150 canals!
The best way to came here is by train, Just outside de station are this big boats called “vaporetos”, they are the public transportation, just like a subway. Take the vaporeto to the Piazza San Marco stop is an excellent way to start the tour, besides taking the vaporeto brings you beautiful views of the city for less money than taking a gondola.
Seeing the piazza for the first time impresses you for his beauty and greatness. In one side you have the Ducal’s Palace, in the other side The Clock’s Tower and finally the Basilica of San Marco with his mosaics cover in gold. Also you will see the real owners of the Piazza, the doves!. Is a great show to see how the people feed them while you listen in the background a Tango played by the orchestras of the cafés.
Another thing that you can’t miss is walk by the little streets to the Rialto Bridge and see the stores of Murano’s crystal, Jeweler’s stores and shops of masks of the carnival of venezia on the way. The view from this bridge is amazing, is a real chaos how the vaporetos, gondolas and boats pass across the great canal. Finally you have to eat a “gelato”(ice cream) while you look at the life of Venezia on a bridge.
There is a house in a village perched on a hill, overlooking a road that winds down the town below. Ours is a quiet town in a small island surrounded by the Mediterranean waters, but the man living in -- or I dare say, visiting -- this house is never quiet.
Thirty-five degrees. Summer. Lisbon. Seven hills. Worst combination ever! What better to do than to escape the horrible heat of a tropical summer day in Lisbon with its too many hills to a fabulous beach that is just one bridge away? It's enough to just cross the stunning 25th of April Bridge to arrive in an exotic paradise, with great waves and even better people.
There are small pleasures and big pleasures. A small one, like eating a chocolate after lunch, the first day of summer after a cold spring or finally meeting that girl you see every day on your morning commute can be more satisfying than anything else. As for me, shooting live music shows with the Petzval Lens is one of those small pleasures.

The people of a city, to me, speak volumes about its culture and sense of community. And that is why I sought out the people who make Denver that much more interesting after the initial period of settling down.

In the second story on Transient Living, I present to you two of such establishments: The Craftsman & Apprentice, and A Small Print Shop.
