    How refreshing! An article on Venice that doesn't mention sipping those delightful Bellinis at Harry's Bar. One of the last converstations I had with my father was him trying to pursuade me to order dessert when I was full. "How about some Tiramisu, you like Tiramisu don't you? It's Japanese...."

    Paul, you have described the city of dreams marvelously well. One of my favorite photos is at a table along a canal at mid afternoon. You can see a slower almost melodic place behind. But what make that photo so memory inducing is the fact the we got lost and decided to let chance be our guide which led us to this family owned gem of a cafe. It had been in the family for generations but now they had to commute to keep it open yet they were wonderfully friendly.

    @Paul Walters- as I have visited Venice lately you are so accurate in describing Venice. I concur fully with you that visiting it bring lasting memories. My wife says that we must return to Venice and I don't blame her. You reminded me of this great city and its unique life style. You also reminded me of my visit there to the glass factory and how Venetians have mastered this art. To bring back great memories is a gift that you are endowed with.

    Of all the cities in the world you have picked the two that are now engaging a tourist backlash, especially Venice which involves the tourist equivalent of gentrification.

    The local yokels should also be concerned about global warming with the fear of Venice one day being underwater

    Your buzz shows that it is still a beautiful city, though at a personal level I used to hate walking down the Grand Union Canal in London, and that was not a networked street of canals. I am not at all an amphibian creature, though my brother did go to Venice for his honeymoon and took his wife on the Gondolas and all the other romantic things one can do before whisking her way to the Swiss Alps. My misses, not so lucky :-)

    He was planning to go back to Venice as a rekindling of his honeymoon but his friends told him to hold onto his original memories, that the Venice he honeymooned in is now a more different Venice. Looks like the scaremongers are everywhere now :-) Close

    "Venice is a city of magical dreams and after you depart is a place that will stay with you long after you have reluctantly left." I know with Florence, buildings were eventually constructed of stone because every six months, Florence burnt to the ground. Is it the same in Venice, @Paul Walters? I wrote my first real fiction piece staged in 14th century Florence. I've always wanted to visit it.

    Once again @Paul Walters a masterly scribed ode to a remarkable destination. I would just add a footnote: July may not be the best time to visit. Being more in the peasant class of tourism, our lasting memories of our visit in July 2 years ago include hot, sweaty, smelly and over-crowded alleyways with humanity scrumming down to force a way to the next destination!

    Thanks again for bringing back memories, Pak Paul, which at my age are vague indeed. I visited Istanbul too many years ago with a bunch of engineers newly graduated from Aberdeen Uni. Even back then there was a security scare which prevented us from visiting the Bosporus Bridge (first one) which was under construction. My memories of 'Turkish delight' were the 'entertainment' in an infamous nightclub from which we were ejected for ..... well that's a different story. I'm pretty sure we visited the iconic places you mention and which you have beautifully illustrated, but my recollection was distorted through beer goggles. Another prime example of life being wasted on the young. 😂

    Turkey is a very interesting place if only because I have noted how young Turkish people have adapted to social networks and so I can only judge from my own biased perspective of very enlightening and pleasant encounters.

    While the expression "Young Turks" is generally a positive, a growing expression is "Mechanical Turks" but this is not about Turkish people, it is about the research industry who use a form of cheap labour to conduct research.

    Erdogan does not much help matters politically speaking but I must give credit to Turkish people who recognize the value within Turkey of a secular culture. When I combine that with the rich history and geographical beauty of Turkey as outlined in this buzz, no wonder @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee also speaks fondly and with respect for the place he has often visited in a business capacity.

    One day I hope to visit Istanbul, hopefully not as a part of my aging farewell tour but while I am still relatively a "Young Turk" :-)

You wrote: "The Chinese, Japanese and Koreans are pouring untold millions into the construction of scores of apartment and office complexes, though who will occupy them? The Chinese, Japanese and Koreans I guess." Those were my thoughts too as I read it before reading your reaction. Wow, I had no idea about the secret prison, Khmer Rouge, that's so sad... understatement.

    I totally agree. Just commented on one of travel buzz of @Paul Walters , the quote for travel writer.

    As exploration is in our genes since the origin of human kind, so what can be done to know about new places in the world --> read travel story.

    Inspired travel writer is a dream seeder.

    Quote for every travel writer out there :)

    Thank you for the buzz @Gert Scholtz and yes writing to relive the travel moment is what inspired travel writer do which inspires reader to visit the places in future.

    Such a pitch perfect post, Gert. Travel is good for the brain, tastebuds, and our human compass. Having the means to travel a second time, in sharing a journey via writing, is definitely one of the perks of travel that gets overlooked and should be something we all resort to, when the doldrums arise.

I hope that readers of the post will scroll down to your read it, including: “There is nothing that sharpens our social awareness and sympathy, for those of different cultures and beliefs, than being a stranger in the society of others. And there is nothing that better propagates this affinity than being unconditionally welcomed by total and absolute strangers.” Many thanks Ken.

    How true are the rediscoveries of travel through writing, Gert. Being one who has a shocking memory, I always carry a handy notebook when travelling and also gather information (rarely ever discarded) from pamphlets, tickets and posters, begged, borrowed and stolen along the way. This is much to the chagrin of my better half who nags me until I file everything in an orderly fashion. Then there are the sorting of hundreds (if not thousands) of photos and the occasional discovery of details which went quite unnoticed on the day but are revealed in that lens-captured frozen point in time. Sometimes I think that the actual trip and its preparation are a mere reconnaissance, and that the real journey is the full realisation through later documentation and photographic presentation.

    But the real benefit of travel, to which you allude in your excellent post, Gert, is that we realise a greater affinity with our fellow man, at home and abroad. There is nothing that sharpens our social awareness and sympathy, for those of different cultures and beliefs, than being a stranger in the society of others. And there is nothing that better propagates this affinity than being unconditionally welcomed by total and absolute strangers.

    Dear @Gert Scholtz, you are not only a renaissance man, but a troubadour as well!! Love your writing style and the way you "see" the world. Besides being so enjoyable (and triggering pop culture memories of 2 musicals; 1. which I saw at a young age, read impressionable young girl, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4Nr-IIvuTo and 2. young adult who loves musicals, you can start it a 1:11, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NTymtAbaG08&list=RDNTymtAbaG08#t=22), your writing incorporates all the things I believe in: the fact that we are sensory beings and storytellers, and a great line about our brain that defies Artificial Intelligence, "The brain is a neural tangle of multiple possibilities and impressions. Thank you Gert for allowing me to tag along.

    #27 Lisa, if you are really keen on photography, my best advice to you is to take an on line course. I completed a diploma on line many years ago and though I knew quite a lot until I did the course. If you pick the right one, you will be given practicals to do every week, or in your own time, if weekly is too much, and you should be able to get great feedback from your on line tutor. As for Photoshop, you don't really need it and there are many cheaper and less complex programs around, but Photoshop is the industry standard and well worth the time investment. An alternative editor, which has great crits and is much cheaper, is Lightroom, but I have no hands on experience with this. Why not join a local club? They're not hard to find and you'll pick up many interesting tips to get you on your way.

    #13 #14 I love your frank honesty Ken :)) That means you are down to earth! I like the idea of keeping a notepad with me. I always forget so many details when I travel. It's easy to forget. I think I will grab one and keep it in my purse when we leave. Dr. Google is very generous, isn't he? I want to learn how to take raw photos. I met a professional photographer on IG a few years back and he still uses an older camera and said he won't use anything but. He does the same, develops, turns them into jpegs and I'm not sure about Photoshop. I just began teaching myself how to use Photoshop. I hate when I take a nice photo but no matter what settings I use it may look drab. I also use a few free photo editors too. Is it hard to take raw and then develop them? Sort of sounds relaxing to me. I'm glad you and your wife had such a good time. Welcome home a few weeks late. My husband and I were both really sick this past month and I missed a lot. He's still recovering from pneumonia and we leave on Friday, yikes! Send the healing Gods LOL

    #25 The images of this fascinating country, Gert, were bursting to be taken by my trusty Canon. You are of course correct in your assessment that I took some time to compile these two blogs to date, but much of the time was taken up in choosing only a very few photos from the 1200 or so developed jpegs, taken over a period of some two weeks, so as to hopefully match the blog subjects. When the culture, art and scenery of the places we visit is so stimulating, preparation time flies past, as you undoubtedly know yourself. Thanks for the compliments.

    #12 Thank you so much, Lada, for your compliments. I am glad you enjoyed this post. So many foreigners when travelling in Japan are fascinated by the kimono, which, when comprising a beautiful silk with subtle hues, worn by a woman with poise and maturity, is the epitomy of the Japanese female attire. To illustrate, I refer you to the two lovely ladies (above) who I photographed at the tea ceremony. The three young girls, however, who I shot in Tokyo's Hamarikyu Gardens (refer this earlier post: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ken-boddie/did-we-miss-cherry-blossom-season ), although also beautifully attired, almost appear to be casually dressed by comparison, as is befitting of a stroll outdoors in the uplifting cherry blossom.
