A Thousand Days in Venice: An Unexpected Romance - Marlena  de Blasi Ah, travel memoirs! I enjoy being an armchair traveler and finding new destinations to add to my travel wish list. I loved her descriptions of Venice--it's on my "must see" list now. This book seems to be about the author falling in love with a stranger and uprooting her entire life to be with him, but it is really about her love affair with Venice: the city, its people, its rich history. She's written three books about her journeys and her life and this is the first. Lovers of travel and wanderlust will appreciate her descriptions of the city and its people.
