Essential travel items you need to take with you

Saturday, July 23, 2016

When it comes to travel, there are some gadgets and gears that are useful or you should bring with you. I select them based on the following features:

- They are light
- They are portable
- They do not occupy so much space

You do not need that much to travel, but few essential travel items or some travel essentials that can easily fit a little bag. That's why I updated a bit the page Travel Resources and Books as follows. I also decided to add the section of the hiking apparel as part of my new passion:



 Nikon Coolpix S8200: My travel companion since 2012: it has 16,1 megapixels and fits easily your pockets size. Thanks to the Nikkor 14x Wide Optical zoom you won't miss a capture. You can also record Full HD videos.

      Things to do in Venice in one day, Italy

      Sunday, March 20, 2016

      Since I was born I've heard about things like "this city is the nothern Venice", "this city is like Venice", "this city is inspired to Venice", etc. etc. Well I can say only one thing: Venice is unique and no city can be compared to that, because it is the only city in the world built upon the sea or the lagoon (and also islands). So if you have just one day and you want to have a tour of this unique city you're in the right place, also because I come from its region so I'm really proud to write down this little guide and itinerary. This is a guide written from a local (I've been to this wonderful city approx. 150 times so....): let's list the things to do in Venice in one day! :-)
