Yes, Venice is My Muse

photo by Andrew McHardy

I am a huge fan of Kathleen Gonzalez.
Her book "Free Gondola Ride" has been in my carry-on bag for more flights than I can count - it's such a great book to read and re-read.
I've given it as a Christmas gift to a lot of my gondola friends as well. 

Kathleen has done a fair amount of writing beyond that one book, and she also hosts a terrific blog about Venice and Casanova (one of her greatest areas of interest).

Each month Kathleen interviews someone with a set of questions about Venice and how they see, feel, visit, and are inspired by her.

This month, for better or worse, I'm the one who she interviewed.

Check out the post at:…/venice-my-muse-gre…/

There are great photos by
Tamás Fehér,
Simon Atkins,
and Andrew McHardy.
as well as mention of Saverio Pastor,
Gilberto Penzo, Alberto Bozzo and his Emilio Ceccato store, Roberto Tramontin's great grandfather,
Row Venice,
and of course, Giuliana Longo.

Big thanks to Kathleen for the honor of being this month's interviewee.
It was a lot of fun. I wish I could do it again.
