2015 in photos and a big thank you!

Italy is a beautiful country, we all know that, so to close the year I thought I’d offer you my favourite photos from the last 365 days as a little reminder of some of the wonderful places we’ve visited together (and a few that I’ve yet to tell you about!)

But before I do, there is one thing I need to say to you all, dear readers, and that is a big thank you! Thank you for joining me on this adventure. Thank you for making this the best year yet. Thank you for your continued support and lovely comments – keep ‘em coming! But most of all thank you for voting in Italy Magazine’s 2015 Blogger Awards as, thanks to you, DreamDiscoverItalia is the winner of the Best Art & Culture blog category!

It’s a wonderful honour, especially as the competition was of a superb standard and means a huge amount to me personally. Grazie mille, grazie tante, grazie di tutto, grazie di cuore and grazie infinite!! Thank you!

I’m looking forward to continuing our exploration of Italy in 2016 and can’t wait to tell you all about the treasures of this wonderful land. I hope you’ll come along and in the meantime, here are the highlights of 2015!

    Congratulations on the win. The photos are wonderful…have a great 2016.

  6. Congratulations on your well-deserved award! You’ve put in so much work, heart, and soul, and your passion for Venice is on every page.

  7. In a separate note: You asked about favorite moments, so here are a couple. One of my favorite moments in Venice in 2015 was lunch at Locanda Cipriani on Torcello with my friends Karen and David. What a beautiful setting. I had hoped to go there for years but thought I couldn’t afford it, and then discovered that it wasn’t as pricey as I thought! The garden setting, the bellini, the seared tuna, the attentive service were all worth the price.

    I also had a great treat, back in Venice, when my friend Massimo gave us a free gondola ride through Santa Croce, really quiet canals not clogged with boats. Massimo has been a friend since 1996 and is an generous as ever!

    I hope my little memories spark some good ones for you and your readers. 🙂
