48 hours in venice + our very first travel vlog


Venice is the first “wow” place I’ve ever seen before Port, so getting to watch him experience it for the first time was so fun for me. This city, especially our favorite quieter section, near the Forte Nove ferry stop, feels like a creator’s playground. Venice has this mist of glamour or mystery or something hanging in the air down every single side street that I just can never get enough of. I said to Porter, I don’t get why way more movies and books and shows aren’t set in this city. It feels so endlessly full of stories, and being here you immediately feel a part of all that.


If you go with friends or for a date (that’s a long Tinder commute) grab dinner (and sit upstairs) at our new favorite spot Osteria Bancogiro. The upstairs is a small loft with just a few tables, but downstairs is a much-loved local bar. The decor is all white and cavernous (very us) and I was so mad at myself I didn’t bring the camera the night we went (but we kind of have a no cameras after sunset law we’ve been enforcing because neither of us are great at turning off otherwise, so probably a good thing all in all).


We hope you guys love the video I attached above. This is the first vlog we’ve ever worked on together. Usually I just help shoot some clips and Porter takes it from there. These days everything we do basically overlaps, though. Porter might say that some people are opinionated and seem to want to be in every single lane simultaneously, especially when they share a small space with you and know that you’re video editing…but to be honest, we loved doing this project together. We did most of the editing while we were in Pienza late at night with a bottle of wine, and maybe I just thought it was fun because I wasn’t on the computer keys, (okay, really I was just barking orders) but there’s a satisfaction to getting a video just right that before I’d only ever felt with photos.


We just woke up in Athens, and I’m trying really hard to have blog posts up the next three days in a row so these will finally be lined up with where we actually are. The eco-hotel we’re in is in this awesome section of the city that kind of feels like the West Village in NYC. So many restaurants, bars, juice bars, 20 somethings, it feels so good to be back in a big metropolis, and as a humidity lover, stepping off the plane to that 85 degrees at 7 pm heatwave was the perfect welcome āœŒšŸ¼.
