Thank you, Fausto and Maite

The authors of two excellent blogs showing life in Venice were kind enough to mention me on their blogs.

Thank you, Fausto, a Venetian born and bred, for your blog (  http://alloggibarbaria.blogspot.com/ ) that shows  so clearly your love and knowledge of this city. And, thank you, Maite, who has Venice within her heart and soul, I do believe.  ( http://mavenise.blogspot.com/ )

The rules of receiving the award tell me I must now nominate 5 blogs I admire, and tell these people that I have given them recognition. Choosing just 5 is not easy, but I can cheat and use Fausto and Maite as well!

So, in no particular order, I recommend these blogs to you. If you haven’t paid them a visit before, please do so!

http://veneziablog.blogspot.com/  Steven and his wife and son are making a life for themselves, here in Venice. They really get involved in their new life.

http://iamnotmakingthisup.net/  Erla has lived in Venice, lo, these many years. A National Geographic journalist in a past life, she puts a wry spin on life in this city.

http://bluoscar.blogspot.com/  This fellow lives in Treviso. He gets up every Saturday morning while most of us are tucked into our warm beds, to take magical photos of Venice.

http://www.renaissancerules.wordpress.com/  Randy writes scholarly and interesting articles on the physical and social history of Venice.

http://www.theveniceexperience.blogspot.com/  Karen and Mike moved from the USA several years ago. Karen writes about every day life in Venice.

http://www.shellsherree.com/  Luckily, I never could count, so I’ll slip in Shell’s blog. She does the most gorgeous watercolours of scenes in Venice (and Paris, I forgive her!) She also shows a delightful use of words in her blog.

 I have not been able to name all the blogs I love. Just look at my blogroll to see where I go most days.

    • Oh, no, now you’ve gone and done it! You have mentioned a blog of which I was blissfully unaware (Strabela Venexia). i’ll have to set the alarm for an earlier time, it seems! 🙂
