BUON GIORNO VENEZIA!

Finalmente BEAR is back from Venezia today and wants to share his molto adventuras with you dear patient PBers! BEAR adoro San Marco.

What's not to love? And Italian gelato!!! Absolutemente perfecto! Ahhhh pistache Bronte... BEAR, being French (permesso Parisien) has expensive tastes it seems...ahem
So we go to Caffe Florian...
Perfecto!
BEAR is crazy for Italian fashion.

The 'wrinkled look' is perfect for the traveler.

Non e vero?

SUPER PERFETO!

BEAR spots his first Venetian dog...
On the vaporetto #1 Bear spots his first true Venetian...

You can tell by the complicated boots.
Venezia te adoro!

  7. I'm so sorry we weren't able to meet in Paris, but it sure looks as though you had a magnificent time in Venice. I will add it to my bucket list! Rose the Rat Terrier sends her regards to you and Bear!

  9. Thank for taking us along! I wish I was having a pistachio gelato too (and not sitting in a cubicle!) I adore my memories of Venice, and all of Italy.

    That photo of Bear in the scarf is priceless.

    Naturellement, now that you're back in the City of Light, the rain has come back and it's brrrrr cold. I think Bear is going to need the scarf.

  14. Oh, how wonderful - Bear did get to take a gondola ride! I was so hoping he'd do that.


    Delightful pictures. I spent one day in Venice a few years ago and this brings back wonderful memories.


    Enjoy!

  18. Yay! You're back! That photo of Bear in the scarf cracked me up. Venice looks amazing. Did you hear music in San Marco?

  19. Great photos of a great spot. You had sunshine, too! (Three days of rain for me.)
    Bear looks like he had a ball :) I hope that you did, too!
    The gelato is fabulous in Italy.
    I'm glad that the "rumpled" look is in style - I will be fashionable now....

  23. Bonjour Carol- I just knew Bear would love Venice - he is really loving the class and style of the Venitians and he looks so contented -perhaps that's all those little trips to posh eateries!! Non!

  25. Carol, it is delightful see how much fun you and Bear have had in glorious Venice.

    The photo of B with his stripes wrapped up in various designs is very charming. How did you get him to sit still long enough for that pose?

    I look forward to hearing more about your journeys.
