I shall keep this brief. In a nutshell, I was very impressed with the Japanese manga and anime series called ARIA. So impressed that I actually visited Venice, where the story is set in. A self-confessed ARIA-pilgrimage. Sounds daft but was well worth it and since I'm studying nearby, Easyjet didn't kill my wallet. I was planning a vacation anyway.
The purpose of this blog...well I'm going to try, (note - *try*) to dig up similarities and differences of the real Venice to ARIA and see how they both match (or not!). Maybe the reader will even learn a thing or two about Venice! I've got over 200 photos from Venice and I shall use them together with screencaps from ARIA.
I hope this garners sufficient interest so please do leave comments or else I'll just abandon this project as it is actually extremely time consuming.
The video below is what I've already made and you should be able to find some references already!
