The Very Special People

Rhonda Byrne has successfully convinced me with her-"The Secret", and after experimenting with the 'Law of Attraction' for so many times I admit, I'm a strong believer of it. Initially I struggled to attract good things in my life and had different perceptions but trust me, it really works. You just think of a thing, and directly or indirectly it comes to you. As Rhonda said- 'Universe is like a waiter in a restaurant and its job is to take order of whatever you want to have'; So, I thought why not start putting my wishes here, after all I want those things to happen to me, and I seriously want to place my order :).

So now let me come to the real thing- ‘the wish’. One of my secret desires is to travel Europe and among all the places Venice in Italy is top there in my wish list. Somehow whatever and whenever I have read or seen about the Venice, I have strongly felt that it’s a must visit place for me. I'm a romantic person, and seeing at this 'City of Canals' somehow the romance in me unfolds to a new level. I imagine myself to be sailing across the Venice along side my lady love on a boat…..yes, fantasies :), but this is also true that these fantasies become the drive for wanting those things and achieving them, so why not fantasize!!

The New York Times has described Venice as "undoubtedly the most beautiful city built by man". Venice has also been described by the Times Online as being one of Europe's most romantic cities, and I don’t question on any of the claims. The amazing thing about Venice is that the city stretches across 117 small islands, and not so surprisingly, the main intra-city transportation is via water only. Venice is one of the most important tourist destinations in the world, due to the city being one of the world's greatest and most beautiful cities of art. The city has an average of 50,000 tourists a day (2007 estimate). In 2006, it was the world's 28th most internationally visited city. These facts and figures are enough for me to wish for my visit to Venice. I simply love this city, and every time there is something shown about the Venice on television, I hardly move out of sight of it. So, I wish I visit Venice soon :)
