If planning a trip to Venice, Italy is giving you sticker shock, you might consider staying in Mestre instead. Here's why:
For those visiting Venice on a shoestring budget, staying on the mainland in Mestre can be a very cost-effective alternative.

I've noticed a lot of street art on my last couple of trips to Las Vegas. I like this trend.

i hope this convinces some Vegas visitors to get off the Strip for at least part of a day. The desert around Vegas is so beautiful.

Nostalgia vs. Reality: Sometimes, our memories play tricks on us when we think back fondly on places we once loved during travel. Sometimes, it's not a good idea to revisit them.
Updated review of Harrahs Las Vegas based on my January 2015 stay. Sometimes, you really can't go home again.

I'm getting very excited about my upcoming cruise. It feels like I've been planning this trip for a year. Oh wait, I have. :-)

This neighborhood is a totally different side of Vegas. Loved it!
Get off the beaten tourist path and interact with creative Las Vegas locals doing innovative things in the 18b Arts District.

Eek! My experience on NCL Epic was fantastic. But..this couple's was certainly not. I've never been so disgusted to see pictures of a room somebody actually paid to stay in. NCL owes them a refund. A BIG one.
