The islands of Murano and Burano (or the island of glass and the island of lace) are situated in the Venetian Lagoon. We’ve visited only Murano. I was too tired to go to Burano as well. To be precise, Murano is not an island, but archipelago connected by a number of bridges and it is also the island closer to Venice, 20 minutes or so by a public boat.
An interesting fact is that in the past, unlike the other islands in the Lagoon of Venice, Murano minted its own coins.
The Murano Glass and the Venetian Glass are practically the same thing, given that all the glass-makers from Venice were chased down to Murano for fear of fires. And for quite some time Murano has been the main producer of glass in Europe, especially glass beads and mirrors.
The Comet Glass Star is e sculpture by the famous glass-maker Simone Cenedese, it is a Christmas present given to Murano in 2008. It consists of 500 separate glass elements, available in six colours and of different sizes.
If ever there was a time I imagined what Venice looked like, it was definitely more like Murano.
A presto /Talk to you soon/,
Interpreting Health is about beauty, but mind you – the beauty of will and the beauty of change.
My late 20’s proved quite turbulent and I had to change many things. Ultimately, I have lost 70 kg | 154 lbs (don’t pass out on me, please :D) and for five years now I’ve committed myself to the gym (former layabout) and a healthy diet (forever cursed to fight binge eating). I’m intrigued by language, working with words is both my passion and a career. I try to go for a light-hearted style and interesting topics. I speak about my life, views and my weight-loss journey in particular, and how it made me stronger and more focused, changed my perspective on life and helped me open a new chapter of myself. But essentially, I want to motivate you, and myself, for even more lovely change.
On a different note, I am a December baby, a Conference Interpreter, Sofia University Graduate, a budding entrepreneur and as a Horoscope once wrote – a staunch Sagittarius.
