Venice, October 2016
Monday, 3 October
The journey began in the early hours of the morning, departing from Abu Dhabi International Airport.
Upon arrival, I travelled by water taxi to my hotel. I was so busy taking everything in that only later did I notice the banner on the pic advertising the Borders Festival I am here to participate in. The exhibition opens on Thursday 6 October in Palazzo Ca Zanardi. I'm excited to be one of the featured artists 😀
I immediately set off exploring (ever the flaneur!)
This couple was using a timer to take their own pics on the Rialto Bridge. Look at the little girl on the right!
After a short stop for breakfast, I headed to Palazzo Franchetti to view the Zaha Hadid exhibition. It was magnificent! I watched an almost one hour film on her life and works and was enthralled.
Amazing models with fluid forms

Photo used for an Instagram post. I also tried to post to Instagram stories throughout the day.
In the afternoon I went to check out the venue for the opening of the Future Landscapes exhibition. What follows is a view of it before I crossed over by bridge.
Just before sunset I paid a visit to Fondaco Dei Tedeschi - a new shopping experience which only opened 2 days ago. The new rooftop experience was fully booked so let's see what tomorrow holds. In the meantime here's one of my lookingup shots:
My Stepz app says I have walked over 14 kms today! Goodnight all 😴
