The people of Kotor in Montenegro love cats; many of the souvenir shops sell cat figurines and t-shirts of cats. What I loved though was how cats are depicted through architecture too, as seen here.
The old town in Kotor was/is fortified quite heavily and the Venetians went so far as to build a wall running up the tall hill behind the old town as part of the fortifications.
The Sorini tin of lovely Italian chocolates depicts a scene on the lagoon in Venice near the Piazza San Marco – having been there just a few days ago I just had to pick this up from the duty free shop at Marco Polo airport in Venice.
Sailing into the port of Kotor in Montenegro. The channel is closed in on both sides by tall hills, with cute villages on the sides. Further on the channel splits into two so there are tall hills to the left, right and front of the ship. Breathtaking beauty.
The Church of San Giorgio Maggiore can be seen across the lagoon from Piazza San Marco. It’s a very striking building especially with the steps on the from coming down to the edge of the water. It wouldn’t look out of place on Game of Thrones!
The architecture in Venice is amazing and the summer light offers nice opportunities to take some interesting shots. There are many bridges in Venice and almost all of them were heaving with tourists taking pictures of the boats passing below.
It’s not often you see an empty gondola in Venice!
Enjoying some pan-Asian food at Tootoomoo in Whetstone with friends. This picture made John and I look like weirdos stalking our wives!
