This post is coming a bit late, but I'm pretty sure no one reading this will actually mind, right? I already mentioned in my old post from Venice how much I worship this city. Its grandeur is beyond words, and the Carnival is one of many Venetian events all creative souls and dreamers should experience at least once in their lifetime. You just need to look past the sea of tourists with the selfie stick disease. (It IS possible, I promise. "Early morning" and "late evening/night" are the keywords.) Needless to say, the masks and costumes are spectacular, especially when you do some research about the meaning and symbolism behind the traditional ones. Now, hopefully, on my next visit, a mysterious new acquaintance will give me an invitation for a private masked ball... I am very eager to witness escapades of the locals and their mischievous guests... There's just something liberating in being disguised, isn't it?
P.S. Expect more blog posts with plenty of photographs from Venice in March.
