What is it about traveling that makes people almost high?
When in Rome, do as the Romans do. When in Trastevere, do as you please, but always find the time to spend at least one weekend evening wrapped in the tourist crowd flooding the narrow streets, slowly finding your way to one of the many little bars where you will have beer like a local, taking in the buzz of the street and the tired beauty of the old ochre houses.

Getting lost is every child’s nightmare. Yet, as you get older, there are places where you actually enjoy getting lost. Places where you like the ‘not knowing where you are’ feeling that makes you believe that there is a great new adventure waiting just round the corner. A place like this is the city of Venice during its annual carnival.
