... year old city. My feelings of grandeur were still there but the 21st century tackiness was starting to creep in. Salesman jammed items in your face uninvited to purchase, the hustle and bustle of the tourists was overpowering, the lovely romantic gondalo rides where €100 for 45 minutes and the city looked like it really needed a good hosing down with a gurney.

Other people look pretty confused when walking about but I just seem to find the right places so easily. So I stopped in santa margarita square for dinner ...
... into a giant party with live bands playing. It gave me the same feeling as I had all those years ago at the outdoor rave in Barcelona. There is just something magical about dancing to the music in the streets and feeling part of something much bigger.
The following day was much of the same. I knew I would be returning to Venice later in the year so didn't feel the urgency and need to fit all the tourist attractions in as I would normally do so I felt very relaxed ...
