COLOURS OF BURANO



Somewhere far far away (or maybe actually not that far away for some of you) there is a small island famous for the colours of its houses. The legend says it all started with people who wanted to stand out from their neighbours and chose a different colour for their house. The island looks more than amazing these days...

HI OLGA,
YES BURANO is famous for its artistic glassware and this small island is just a real picture of a beautiful country like italy, which I love. Lovely pictures with unique colours....
Thank you for passing by my blog, indeed the translation is not perfect, specially for the portuguese language.....
Have a good weekend,
HELENA
