Traveling to Malta in the Winter: Where to Stay, Must See's, Travel Tips and More!

I flew into Malta with zero expectations of the country. I did my bit of pre-departure research and looked up some good spots for photos, places to see, food to eat, but that was all. I knew that Malta had some of the oldest archaeological sites to visit, and some of the oldest history as well. Flying over the islands and into Malta gave

Spending Two Days In Salzburg - Austria

Spending Two Days In Salzburg - Austria

Salzburg is a beautiful city with a long pedestrian downtown area. Classical music takes the stage here as this is the birthplace of Mozart and his house can be easily seen from the pedestrian area. Live classical music is played at the castle overlooking the city and this is also where the Sound of Music was filmed. There are many tours that run daily to take you to these famous landmarks. Even though Salzburg is rather touristy, I love visiting this city, walking around, heading up to the castle to capture panoramic views of the area below and beyond, and learning something new each time I'm here.

How to Spend 2 Days in Venice

After staying in Lake Garda for a few days, we were ready to head out for our next adventure two hours east in one of the most popular tourist places in the world; Venice.

When we arrived we planned to park outside of Venice since everything I had researched said that trying to drive into Venice was a pain and, up to a certain point, impossible. Once we arrived and found the parking garage I was happy to see that it was only 4 Euro per day to park there. We found a bus stop nearby and hopped on.
