Venturing Venice: The City of Canals Through My Inebriated Eyes


Venice… the city of canals and romance. It’s a place where the streets are made of water and the buildings are adorned with intricate details. But what happens when you visit Venice with an imaginary monkey that shows up when you drink and a smokin hot wife whom you adore? Let’s just say that the city takes on a whole new dimension. Here’s a tale of my intoxicated journey in Venice, through the eyes of a drunk philosophical pilot.

Intoxicated Arrival: A Monkey and a Bride

As soon as we arrived in Venice, my imaginary monkey, Bobo, made an appearance. He sat on my shoulder, sipping on a miniature bottle of gin, and commented on everything we saw. My wife, the ever-patient and beautiful woman that she is, played along and humored us both. We stumbled down the narrow streets, marveling at the endless canals and the brightly colored buildings.

Suddenly, we came across a wedding procession. The bride, in her white gown, was being rowed along the canal while the groom walked alongside her on the street. Bobo, being the mischievous monkey that he is, decided to join in the fun. He jumped off my shoulder and onto the rowboat, grabbing a bottle of champagne on the way. We toasted the newlyweds and continued on our way, feeling even more invigorated by the excitement.

Surreal Adventures on Venice’s Canals

As the day turned into night, Venice became even more surreal. We hopped onto a gondola and glided along the canals, watching as the city lit up around us. Bobo sang old Italian songs while my wife and I held hands and took in the beauty of it all. We stopped at a small bar, where we were served the best wine we had ever tasted. The bartender, a jovial man with a thick accent, regaled us with stories of his life in Venice.

Eventually, we stumbled upon a masquerade ball. It was as if we had stepped into a dream. The attendees were all dressed in elaborate costumes, and the music was lively and enchanting. Bobo, of course, had to join in on the fun and wore a little top hat and a feathered mask. We danced and laughed until the early hours of the morning, feeling as if we had been transported to a different world.

Reflections on Love, Life, and Liquor

As we made our way back to our hotel, the sun began to rise. Bobo had fallen asleep in my coat pocket, and my wife and I were holding each other tightly. We talked about life, love, and the crazy adventure we had just experienced. We realized that sometimes, it takes a little bit of liquor and an imaginary monkey to truly appreciate the beauty of the world around us.

Venice had shown us that life can be unexpected and that the most magical moments often come from the most unlikely sources. We made a vow to always keep our hearts open to the unexpected and to continue adventuring together, no matter where our travels may take us.

Venice, the city of canals, had shown us that life can be a beautiful, surreal adventure. From the arrival of Bobo to the masquerade ball, we had experienced moments that we would never forget. It was a journey that reminded us to never lose our sense of wonder and to always embrace the unexpected. And who knows, maybe we’ll meet Bobo again on our next adventure.
