Here are some of the 'best of' shots during our time in Italy last week. We spent most of the time in the lake Como area but my favourite part was our day trip to Venice where we were able to take in the charming scenery of this floating city and visit the Venice Biennale. ('a major contemporary art exhibition that takes place once every two years in Venice Italy...' wiki here).

We also spent a small amount of time in Milano and saw the famous Gothic cathedral and Galleria Vittorio Emanule II which houses some very expensive designer lables like Gucci, Prada, Louis Vuitton, and Versache, (not that I was buying, in fact I was too imtimidated to even go into the stores).

Even before I arrived home, I received a desperate call from work saying every teacher was either sick or on holiday, and could I come in extra hours and basically run the preschool? No problem, but since I am the very new, part time teacher and had only worked there for total of 12 hours, it was quite the leap. By the end of last week, I was very tired.

And this week we move house. again. phew! Life is a little too busy right now but I really can't complain. I am very excited about the new place, I really like my new job, and my new German course is really fabulous, but sometimes when everything is NEW and BUSY, all you want to do is curl up with a good book, and drink cups of coffee all day long, and do absolutely nothing.

Hope to catch up with all your blogs really soon!

These photos are just beautiful. I'd love to go to the Biennale (and Lake Como wouldn't be too bad, either)!

I loved seeing beautiful Venice all over again and the exhibition photos looked amazing...wish I'd been there. I hope you get some quiet "Kimberlee time" very soon.

Yeah, I understand about the being too busy thing. Well at least they appreciate you at your new job! Thanks for sharing the photos - that window - magical, and that installation with the thread - even more magical....
