FROM BRUSSELS TO VENICE: LAURE’S EXPERIENCE

I met Laure many years ago, during the Carnival in the famous parade of Festa delle Marie. I have always been very curious about her experience and that’s because we interviewed her last week, in order to discover what took her from Brussels to Venice!

So…who is Laure Jacquemin and what has taken her to move from Brussels to Venice?

Laure is a Belgian girl that has lived in Venice for 10 years and as happened many times, she moved in Italy for love..not for the love of Venice, but for the love of her Italian husband.

If you see her Instagram profile you can see that Laure is an amazing photographer, but surprisingly I discovered that she started her path as photographer here in Venice…ten years ago!

SPORT IN VENICE , YOU CAN DO EVERYTHING!

In Venice there are a lot of museums, churches, bacari and shops but if you stay for a long time here it could be useful to know how to do sport in Venice and keep yourself fit.

Many times walking through the campi (Venetian square) you can find children that play on the streets, people that do jogging, but are there fitness centers and football pitches in Venice? Yes, maybe they’re hidden, but you can find everything!

A SPECIAL VISIT IN THE BASILICA DI SAN MARCO MUSEUM

Last Sunday we decided to have a visit at the Museum of Basilica di San Marco, and I have to confess you (it’s shameful, I know it 🙂 ) that it was my first time!

We went there at 13 am in order to avoid the crowd, and we were lucky…we entered immediately.

The first thing you see when you entered is this, and what can we say about it? It is amazing!!!

FLO ‘S ERASMUS EXPERIENCE IN VENICE

In an Erasmus experience, you cry twice:  when you arrive and when you leave.
In an Erasmus experience in Venice you keep crying even years after …I am Flo, I am French and I spent one year in Venice thanks to the Erasmus program. It has been the best year of my life so far …
One day, a Venetian told me: it’s either you love it or you hate it.
Being a tourist in Venice is so different than living there. Indeed, it is special only because Venice is special. You won’t realize it until you live there for real.
You feel safe, lucky and happy …
Also it’s very different from anywhere else because there is no car (I used to go to Uni by boat… what a dream!)

TEDxMESTRE: AN HOTBED OF IDEAS AND VALUES FOR VENETIAN TERRITORY

TEDxMestre is a project born in the February of 2019,  in order to bring to Venice the American format of TED conferences, through TEDx events: local events organised in an indipendent way but with the same spirit to tell ideas and values of the territorial community. In just six months, a group of local, young volunteers had been able to build the first edition, dedicated to the topic of ‘awakening’, and which had involved more than 700 people. The chosen location was the modern M9, the new museum in Mestre’s centre.

MY VENICE BY ELEONORA

written by Eleonora, pics by Eleonora – @__myworldguide__[ITALIAN VERSION BELOW]

How many times have we heard people say “Venice is the most beautiful city in the world”?eleonora

It seems a catchfrase, a conventional form of labeling such an uncommon place that for many tourists it completely loses its sense of city, taking on the appearance of an attraction. For those who, like me, were born and grew up among its streets, this phrase undertake a completely different meaning. Continue reading “MY VENICE BY ELEONORA”

A CARNIVALESQUE SUNDAY IN VENICE

Venice is always amazing, but during Carnival it’s just something that is worthy seeing at least one time in life.

The celebration has officially started with the first Venetian Night, where a joyful procession of decorated boats, baloons and tricks of light have crossed the Canal Grande.

Colors, costumes, masks, cheerful processions of smiling people: that’s what you can see if you decide to visit Venice in these weeks.
