In August '98, we went to Venice, which is in the north of Italy.
It was incredibly exciting. We flew from London direct to Venice. While you're there, there are no cars, so we either had to walk everywhere, or go by vaporetto, which is a big water-bus that takes you around the canals.
The picture above is of us sitting on the famous Rialto Bridge.
This picture of us in the sea with Mummy was taken at the Lido, which is just a short boat ride from Venice. The building in the background is the Hotel des Bains, which Thomas Mann made famous in his book 'Death in Venice', and which is in the film of that book.
On the left, you can see Teddy and Bella, who had a great time, and ate far too much delicious Italian ice-cream.
Part of the idea of going to Venice was that we'd all take big sketch books and do some drawing every day.
The charcoal below was drawn by Jack in the nave of the church of the Madonna dell'Orto, where the painter Tintoretto is buried.
Every year in February, Venice hosts a spectacular carnival, when everybody wears beautiful papier-mache masks. We weren't there at the right time for it, but this is us with a masked figure called the 'Plague Doctor', outside one of the shops that makes and sells the masks.
Jack bought this beautiful 'mouse' mask as a souvenir.
