What can I say about Venice that hasn’t been said so many times before? Yes, it’s true that it’s incredibly beautiful. It’s so beautiful it’s almost surreal. In fact, you can find beauty and old-world charm in just about every corner of the city. It doesn’t really matter where you go…you’ll find beauty. Yes, there are iconic, amazing landmarks that you absolutely must see. But there are also amazing places around random corners.
A few years ago, my parents went to Belize. I was supposed to go with them but through a combination of unfortunate circumstances, I wasn’t able to go…and I was devastated. However, looking at their photos and hearing about what a wonderful time they had really fueled my wanderlust for the small Central American country, and I’m still bound and determined to make it there someday. If you’re unfamiliar with the beauty of this amazing little country, allow me to introduce you to Belize, the topic of this week’s Wanderlust Wednesday.
The moment my plane touched down at the Venice airport, all the wariness and exhaustion of the last several days of traveling left me. All I had left was excitement. This was, after all, my first time in Italy, and I was about to explore one of the most beautiful cities on the planet.
It was the first day of my honeymoon and I had just landed in Venice, Italy. It had been a harrowing journey. We had originally planned on flying into Milan, where we would spend the night, explore Milan a bit, and then take the train into Venice the next day.
These plans were foiled, however, by my old nemesis of LAX. I don’t know if you’re noticing a theme in this blog yet or not, but nothing good ever happens to me at LAX. In my opinion, it is a pit of despair. Still, Los Angeles is the cheapest airport to fly out of internationally in my area, so I do find myself there more often than I would like.
In the first post in this series, we talked about some tips to make the trip more entertaining. This post is about preparation for a road trip. It’s all the boring yet necessary stuff you should probably do before you hit the road.
When you mention Rwanda to somebody, they will likely recall some pretty brutal images of war in the mid-90’s. However, things have calmed down considerably since then and in general, it’s a safe place to visit. There are still issues from time to time, however, but if you are vigilant you should be fine. Besides, Rwanda is a beautiful place that has so much to offer those who are willing to pay it a visit! Take a look at some of the beautiful images from the country, below, and imagine yourself on a trip to this beautiful African nation.
The Great American Road Trip is a beloved pastime in my country. However, as my country is also enormous with large areas of unoccupied wide open spaces, it can also be boring. If you’re planning a road trip (in any country!), you might want to follow a few of these tips to make your journey smooth and entertaining.
On a recent trip to Cabo San Lucas, I spent one of the days of my excursion relaxing at the Breathless All Inclusive Resort. Normally at an all-inclusive, you need to be a guest at the hotel, but the awesome thing about Breathless was that they had a day pass. I of course had to investigate. For….research, of course.
If you’re going to fly out of Tijuana Airport from the U.S. side of the border, they have made it really easy for you.
More and more of us are traveling these days with just a smart phone rather than carrying guide books, maps, a music player, a phone card, and a camera like in the old days. Remember carrying all that stuff? It’s nice to have the load lightened. Still, for those of us who love taking beautiful photographs, we may sometimes feel a smart phone doesn’t capture our images in just the way we want them. Not to worry, there’s an app for that! Obviously, Instagram is a great go-to app for making beautiful travel photos. (shameless plug for my Instagram!!!) However, when Instagram just isn’t enough, there are plenty of other apps out there to help you create and edit your travel memories just the way you want them.
