A short break again


I will make a break for about two weeks. I’m off to Venice where, as an additional pleasure, I will also meet some other bloggers. More bridges to be posted about!

This is how Monet saw Venice.

Hi Peter, hope you have a great time there. My first time in Venice was in late October, early November. You may catch some gorgeous misty light for ypour pictures... Look forward to seeing them!
We'll miss your Paris, but ok... we'll survive!
The bridges series is outstanding!!
Have a great time!

Have a wonderful time in Venice, Peter!

We got about 20 cm of snow yesterday and it's still snowing...

Olivier said...

Ne rame pas trop fort pour tes bras, chante plutôt.
J'espère que tu seras de retour pour le 13 décembre. Bon voyage.

Rakesh Vanamali said...

hpy said...

Bon voyage. Pendant ce temps, qui est-ce qui va soupirer?

alice said...

Je suis certaine que ces quelques jours à Venise vont être formidables! Je suis pressée que tu nous racontes tout ça. Fais bon voyage et prends bien soin de toi.

Cuckoo said...

Bon Voyage Peter !!

Bring lots of pictures and I'll use them when I write about Venice. :)

Are you going to only Venice or neighbourhood islands as well ?

claude said...

Bon voyage Peter ! Tu en as de la change de voyager comme çà. Je disais à mon Chéri, pas plus tard qu'hier, que j'aimerais bien faire un voyage en Italie à Venise et à Rome pour y rencontrer Nazzareno.

Cezar and Léia said...

Have a nice trip Peter!Enjoy Italy!:-)

Mona said...

Have a great Time Peter.

Monet, Manet and Van Gogh are my favorite Impressionists. :)

Thank for posting this!

april said...

Have a great time in Venice, Peter. It must be wonderful in winter. But I hope there is no 'acqua alta'.

Starman said...

Bon voyage. I liked Venice, but then, I think everybody likes Venice.

Marie-Noyale said...

C'est ,je pense ,une tres belle saison pour visiter Venise...
Peu de touristes et un temps legerement frais..
Reviens nous avec de superbes photos.
Je te souhaite un tres Bon Voyage.
A Bientot.

Virginia said...

Leena said...

Pleasant meeting with other bloggers and Venice, Peter !

Cergie said...

Tu as bien raison de profiter ; après tu auras juste du mal de te replonger dans le monde virtuel....
Des rencontres... A Venise Sartre et Beauvoir ont été, et aussi George Sand et... Chopin ? A moins que ce soit Musset ?
J'espère que tu as prévu les cuissardes.
A plus tard, Peter...

Cutie said...

Have fun in Venice. I believe it's going to be an enjoyable trip. Venice is still a place I would love to visit.

JoAnn's-D-Eyes said...

JoAnn

jill said...

Looking forward to another great bridge series, this time of Venice.

babooshka said...

I'm here and you disappear. I will have to investigate you images fully in your absence.

Kate said...

Peter, I envy you your trips! Venice seems like a great destination, esp. to meet other bloggers. Have fun!

Therese said...

Si tu vois Venise comme Monet l'a peint on aura du mal à te récupérer...
Bon séjour!

Anonymous said...

Hej Peter,

ne te baigne pas comme je l'ai fait à 15 ans dans le canal de la giudecca...il fait froid...

à bientôt!

Deslilas said...

Did you miss snow so much to go to Venise ?

HZDP said...

haha, you're on trip again, peter, bon voyage anyway!

Maxime said...

Peut-être allons-nous bientôt tout savoir sur les ponts de Venise, à commencer par celui des soupirs...
En attendant, Monet est une excellente compagnie.
Passes de bonnes vacances, Peter !

marie6 said...

So that's where you got to, I was wondering about you as it's been a while since we heard any comments from you. Enjoy your trip, and looking forward to your photos!

sonia a. mascaro said...

Wow! Venice! That is great! I am looking forward to see photos. Have a nice time in Venice and have much fun meeting fellow bloggers!

Karen said...

My television news said that Venice was flooding.. something about the water rising higher than ever.. Hope you are staying dry and enjoying your vacation.

Rakesh Vanamali said...

Peter, I've got something for you on http://almostsunday.blogspot.com/2008/12/home-grown.html

Cheers

Rakesh

GMG said...

Aqua Alta? I can't believe... what were you doing in Venice? ;))
Have a safe trip back!!

Shammickite said...

Peter: I hope you packed your big rubber boots for your trip to Venice...., you're going to need them! I see the water is rising and tourists are strolling about up to their knees in brown water. Stay dry... and come home safely.

Cergie said...

Les cuissardes... J'avais bien raison....
L'acqua alta. L'eau coule presque par dessus les ponts à Venise.
J'espère que tu n'oublies pas non plus de porter ton écharpe et ta petite laine.
A bientôt, Peter !

JoAnn's-D-Eyes said...

....still enjoying Venice..

Emily Lin said...

Hey Peter, have a safe and fun trip there! I heard the news about Venice's flooding.. Take care and A bientôt :)

krystyna said...

Have a wonderful time, Peter!

Thanks for great Monet!

claude said...

J'espère que tu ne t'es pas noyé à Venise. La ville d'eau est sous les eaux. A bientôt !

Ruth said...

Oh dear, I hope you didn't have to leave flooded Venice! Thinking of you.

claude said...

J'ai vu en Suisse que tu es revenu. Bon retour !

Peter said...

Thanks and merci for all your kind comments during my absence. I had some wonderful time in Venice despite some high waters (aqua alta). What a pleasure to stroll around without time pressure for some ten days! Yes, I got wet feet one day, despite boots, but who cares? I will post some photos as from tomorrow, Monday.
