This is a doco Venice – Loved to Death from Journeyman Pictures http://www.journeyman.tv/ is the website and the docos there cover the world.
Everyone keeps on asking if I’m excited about Venice. Yes! But I’m also starting to feel slightly obsessed. I mean looking for images and videos of Venice on You Tube has to say that I don’t have anything better to do with my time. Last night at dinner my child asked me if I had started packing yet because last time I went away I had my bag packed months in advance. In truth no, I haven’t started to pack. Does this mean that I will be loaded down with inappropriate clothing because I haven’t spent the time agonising over every little item? Or is it an indication that I’m feeling a lot more relaxed about the whole thing? I have spent time thinking about essentials – so what are they? Good shoes and boots for walking, comfortable and yet stylish (!) clothes (probably all black), camera, overcoat, phone with global roaming, sketch book and tea bags!
