Five stars from the TWS duo for the +Walks of Italy  Venice Food Tour we took last week. Our wonderful guide Christina took us to the markets and eateries to taste cicchetti (small dishes), pasta, and wine while informing and entertaining us with stories and tips about Venetian lifestyle and food culture. More to come later on the blog. ‪#takewalks

Very interesting academic perspectives of travel. First in a series by +Null & Full 
Everyone can travel…or can’t they? The current state of play seems to prove that literally everyone has enough skills to travel around the world and instruct others how to do this later on. I am pretty sure that you read at least once an article that was inaccurate, lousy and just irritating.

Interesting history and insights of +Agata Mleczko on Travel -- The Pilgrimage, Grand Tour, and Mass Tourism

This post will discuss three equally important points related to the history of travels. The Pilgrimage Before the early 17th century, people scarcely traveled.

Simply gorgeous!
