Literally a transient dream

Four men in a sailboat by the quayside.
One of them up in the mast engaged in arranging sails.
Of course with a pocket camera too.
A cute girl apparently heading straight to the boat.
Could be the perfect dream,
because she had a bag of goodies in one hand and a red wine in the other.
But she continued straight to the boat next, it was the end of that dream.

Bridge of signs

Ponte dei Sospiri
“The Bridge of Sighs”
Venice Italy

Maybe the worlds most “dangerous” bridge ever..!

The bridge itself is safe enough – the bridge is escape secured and made of white limestone and has windows with stone bars – it passes over the Rio di Palazzo and connects the “new” prison to the interrogation rooms in the Doge’s Palace
it was designed by Antoni Contino
(whose uncle Antonio da Ponte had designed the Rialto Bridge in Venice)
the bridge was built in 1602.

So far so good.

But a local legend says that lovers will be granted eternal love and bliss
if they kisses while they are on a gondola at sunset under the Bridge Of Sighs.

So take care who you kiss under this bridge
or who you let kiss you.

Kiss only if you are absolutely sure, that you are kissing the only one.
