When I started writing posts for this blog a little over two years ago, it was simply to chronicle the adventures and provide the details of our expedition on the Hudson River.
I hadn't planned on continuing beyond that expedition, but as time went on, I kept writing. So far I haven't run out of things to post; there's still plenty of great gondola-related and Venice-related stuff out there waiting to be photographed and written about.
I want to thank each and every one of you for checking in and taking the time to read my posts.
I appreciate all the comments, e-mails and phone calls I've received regarding the Gondola Blog and various topics discussed here.
In the months to come, I plan to cover such topics as "why are gondolas black?", striped shirts, "Solar Powered Gondolas", and a guy known in Venice as "The Terminator". I'll feature some more boats and bridges that deserve a closer look. I'll also address "spontaneous baptism" and attempt to explore the definition of a "wedding gondola".
Today's post marks a milestone:
this is the 800th post on the Gondola Blog.
Sure, some have just been photos, but I'd like to think that a few of them had substance.
I hope you've enjoyed reading this blog, and that you'll continue to check back, and comment with relevance, making things all the more interesting.
