This is what happens if The Doctor and Giacomo Casanova were to meet in Venice.

I love the random interaction on some social networks, especially on tumblr with its many single purpose blogs. It seems like it’s almost every week that a new Clients from Hell or texts from whoever appears. Two random SPTB that follow me for some reason on tumblr are Giacomo Casanova: Ciao! I am Giacomo Casanova, […]

Venice inspired weekend

I’ve still not blogged about this week’s Venice trip which is mainly due to my pictures being worse than I expected.

A spur of the moment holiday!

Come early […]
