Venice is a city which seems to dazzle everyone who enters. It glows. It sparkles. It surprises. But behind all that shimmer and shine, there are all those same dark corners and less than perfect experiences to be had. Avoid all the following things to ensure you have the best vacation in this magical floating city.
Salzburg being such a small city is the perfect place to explore on foot. Due to the fact that the city's tourist popularity only took off in the late 19th century, the magnificent baroque architecture and the incredible natural environment was left preserved and without huge areas of modernization. This makes it a dream for photographers and Instagrammers alike. I've provided a google map to all the different locations and put them in an easy to follow sequence so you can actually use this guide as a walking tour as well as Instagram guide.
When it comes to taking long-haul flights in economy (which let's face it, almost 99.9% of us fly economy), there is no real way to be completely at ease BUT there is plenty you can do to make it as enjoyable as possible. The number one tip I have is to be prepared long in advance. There's nothing like stress to set off your trip on the wrong foot. I tend to pack a full few weeks in advance, and while I don't recommend this necessarily, it is good to have all your ducks in a row a few days before your flight.
Traveling to Iceland without visiting the Blue Lagoon (or a similar Hot Springs Spa) would be like going to Paris and not seeing the Eiffel Tower or travelling to Rome without passing by the Colosseum! It's an activity anyone will enjoy as it lets you experience a truly unique aspect of Iceland's earthly power.
