Photographer Nikolaj Thaning Rentzmann teamed up with Spies Rejser who sent him to the end of the earth. Well not quite, but they did send him to Venice (that’s in Italy already) to capture the Floating City before it sinks back into the sea. Which would be a bit of a bummer ‘cos it’s a pretty sweet spot, and then we couldn’t do #puddlegrams


The view from the roof of some hotel we snuck into near San Marco Square. We went up there to clear our heads but got bowled over by this golden light instead.

 

If you think about it, cruising in a gondola is like the OG version of Diddy’s yacht parties.

 


The island of Burano is one of the most dynamic places I’ve ever visited. Check out this adorable little nugget of an old man! With its maze-like, winding alleys and vivid colours shifting and popping off of the walls, who needs recreational stimulus?

 


Early in the morning the streets are completely empty, except for these nuns Holy Rollin’ through San Marco Square. They give new meaning to the ‘walk of shame’ you’re likely doing at that hour.

On a rendezvous for tiramisu, through nooks and crannies run by Catholic grannies, it’s all good in the Venice ‘hood.

 

Gondolas from a rooftop. These boats are a must to try, just don’t let ’em catch ya ridin’ dirty.

 

I never saw the good side of the city ’til I hitched a ride on a gondola queen. Big wheel keep on turnin’, Proud Venice keep on burnin’. Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the river. Also known as the Grand Canal.
