The prompt for this week’s photo challenge is bridge. Unfortunately, after an extensive search through my photos for an inspiring bridge in Portugal, I drew a blank. Will a bridge in Venice suffice?
On our first evening in Venice we sat at one of these tables sipping wine while watching the Gondoliers at work. It never ceased to amaze me how they managed to squeeze under the low bridges, and still maneuver the gondola. I wanted a ride but we just ran out of time.
If you’ve never been to Venice do add it to your bucket list. I hope to return one day to claim a romantic ride in a gondola.
This is at the top of my bucket list of places to travel. What a dream this place is! Ahh, those gondola rides:)
It will indeed, Pip, though I have any number of the Ponte Romana in Tavira. Another challenge unmet 🙂 🙂
I’ve visited a few major cities in Italy, but never been to Venice. A gondola ride must be very romantic. Great photos Carole.
Very nice. Wonderful photos, perfect for the challenge. Sounds like you had a grand time.

Venice is indeed a land of bridges. Would have loved some Portuguese bridges tho 🙂 Maybe next time??
I was fortunate enough to take my two daughters to Venice from Australia, and that more than once from the time they were 7-9. Hate to tell the true story that both had their future husbands take them there for their respective marriage proposals 🙂 ! On gondolas, I believe 🙂 ! Methinks the ‘business’ has become far too commercial these days tho’ – incoming money and ‘manufactured’ romance!! Place but also time . . . perhaps you better find those bridges in Portugal . . .
Beautiful. Hope to go back one day!
