We spent our third day watching movies, relaxing on the beach, and spotting celebrities at Lido Island
We happened to book the Italy trip during VIFF 2017, the Venice International Film Festival! My mom is a huge movie junkie so we figured we’d dedicate a day to participate in the festival and hope that we’d be lucky enough to attend a screening! Our first choice was Mother!, but given the popularity- it was all sold out. No matter, we found tickets for the next available movie and explored the island afterwards.
We sat by the beach after having a cup of coffee at a nearby bar, and took in the moment. The last time I was at a beach with my mom was when my siblings and I were just little kids running around on a family beach day! After an hour or so, we decided to head back to the ferry and catch a ride back to Venice, but all of a sudden everyone was flooding the red carpet and we heard faint screams: the celebrities were coming.
We saw fans, photographers and paparazzi waiting by the red carpet since we entered the island in the morning, but it wasn’t until the evening when the stars were arriving one by one. Jennifer Lawrence had the most stunning entrance in her Dior Ball Gown. Here are some photos I took on my Canon G7X:
What a way to end the day… unexpected celebrity sightings with my mom! The Italian crowd was so adorable too- everyone was very polite, respectful and yelling “Jenny! Jenny! I love you!”. Spending the day at Lido Island was surely another highlight~
Until day 4! Thanks for reading 🙂
