Venice, Italy: Top 3 things to do

Sleek gondolas, grand St. Mark’s Square and those famous canals are just some of the highlights of a trip to Venice, Italy. Only have one day there? Make sure you do the following three things.

The boardwalk in Copacabana, Bolivia.

Why I didn’t like Copacabana, Bolivia

Copacabana is the gateway to Isla del Sol, serving as a launching off point for the boats that shuttle tourists back and forth. When I began looking into Copa, I thought it sounded like a fun beach town. Well, there is a beach. But that’s about it.

Why you should skip Venice and stay in Lido

I like to think of Lido as the Hamptons of Italy. The perfect place for a getaway, the quiet island features a white sand beach, dozens of delicious restaurants and cafes, cute stores and a laid-back yet classy vibe.

Treehouses.

I have slept curled up in a ball on an airport floor. In the backseat of a car. In a teepee. I have even slept under a canoe. But by far the most unique place I have ever laid my head down is in a tree house.

The three islands of Malta

Malta is off the radar for many travellers, which makes it an even better pick for those who make the trip. The country is just off the southern tip of Italy and east of Tunisia, and the influences from both Africa and Europe are apparent the moment you touch down.
