Sigh...Where?Wednesday


Canals are not unique here in The Netherlands, but you might have guessed from the gondola that this shot is from Venice, Italy.

The gondolier is about to go under the Ponte dei Sospiri (Bridge of Sighs). This bridge connects the Doge's Palace to the dungeons. The English poet Lord Byron coined the phrase ... he supposed that prisoners would stop and sigh at their last view of Venice as they were led to their imprisonment.

For viewers of our travel blog, our apologies for not posting recently. We have taken many recent trips and hope to get back to posting to it next week.

Hi, I made a slide about buildings in R'dam, among them is the Schielandhuis, the Witte Huis and the cubic houses.
I also wrote something about the windmills of Kinderdijk, not far from where I live. I live in the wettest place of Holland. I like your photos. Nice to read about your experiences in the Netherlands.I came across your name on Ineke's blog .
