The Story behind the Venice Videos: To share my remarkable journeys in Venice, I wrote to friends & family about my adventures in this beautiful town. But soon everyone demanded a book. It became a novel, one in which an inquisitive American visitor becomes embroiled in Venetian legends & a recent mystery. Along with her sister, Barbara (equally-enamored with Venice), flashy friends, a slew of admirers, ghosts & saints they find that What Happens in Venice may not stay in Venice. I posted excerpts of the novel on Facebook & Twitter and then returned to Venice to research details.
While finishing the research on the novel, I soon found that I enjoyed creating videos when wandering the city. With videos where I talk about Venice directly to you, like the Venetian fog itself, I decided these secret-unfolding videos belong “in the cloud.” My videos show more than what is found in a typical guide book & illuminate my writing process as well. They feature the typical Venetian food, the ubiquitous churches, the maze-like streets, the glistening canals, the handsome men, the high and low fashion, many travel tips, & even detail the legends, ghosts & saints that watch over this unique city.
In funny, light-hearted, raw videos, I highlight for you the “real” Venice. Whether you have been there, want to go, or just dream of it, they will beguile you. They may also lure you to visit Venice (first time or again) or to write a book inspired by your own travel journeys. Whether in the cloud, or in foggy Venice, you will enjoy the secrets I reveal in my vlogs–which previously only the locals (Venetians) and a few lucky transients like me could find in the hidden corners, canals, lagoon islands, or numerous cafes, campos and bars found in this living museum of a town.
