That looks like great fun, Philine.
Philine: Many thanks, Ray! I prefer the vaporetto to cross the water streets.
The water looks slightly choppy for a gondolier Philine.
Philine: caused by the many boats, also the vaporetti. Many thanks, Chad!

Jolie vue ! Ce doit être très beau à  visiter.
Philine: Vous devez visiter cette ville unique - merci bien, Martine!
Oh that's wonderful, Philine!
Philine: Many thanks, Elizabeth!

I wonder if the gondolier ever gets tipped out, Philine!
Philine: I hope not, many thanks, Lisl!
And to think we'll be there at the end of March, Philine, a month from now! Thanks for the appetizer.
Philine: You happy human beings, March is a wonderful month, not overcrowded yet by tourists. I was there in March two years ago.

Unmistakably Venice. I'm not sure that a gondola is best suited for the choppy waters, though; it is much better for the "street" of the city itself. I know how much you love Venice and I'm sure you will have a lovely time.
Philine: Yes, Venice is my great love, and there are many quarters where are no tourists. I use only the vaporetti boats, not the gondolas. Too anxious. Many thanks, Alan!

I know you love Venice. We will be there soon too. What a great picture to show what we can expect.
Wonderful picture.
Philine: You will be enthusiast, Astird, and I am looking forward to your images!

Shutterchance is awash with gondolas today. I still think of Mahler's 5th when I look at scenes such as this..
Philine: Yes, it is Boat Friday.I love Mahler's music (I'll listen to Simon Rattle and the Mahler symphony on 28th February in Essen) and I love the film "Death in Venice". Thank you very much, Chris!
I think your heart lies in Venice Philine
Philine: Yes, it does, but not on the St. Mark square where thousands of Asian tourists are standing around. Many thanks, Bill!
