A Pot of Gold
Welcome New Subscribers! 
If travel makes one richer, I'm aiming for a pot of gold!  I'm not there yet, but I'm working on it.  I'm trying to help you get one, too!
One of my friends comes to me each week with a question about her upcoming trip.  She is not traveling with me, but with a different tour group. "When should I buy my plane tickets?"  "Should I pay for this part with American dollars or with local currency?"  Answering her questions will help her become richer - not only with this trip, but with traveling she does in the future.   
In the post this week I write about real money, not just the pot of gold we dream about.  My hope is that you can see that travel does not have to be just a dream.  With a little planning, a trip to Europe can become a reality. A trip abroad can fit into a small budget or a larger one.  
It's just as important, however, to look at the return on your investment. Travel can add richness and fullness to your life. Even if you don't find the end of the rainbow, the journey may be your pot of gold.

Travel to Europe can be as affordable as you want to make it.  Here are some thoughts about planning for your dream trip:


If you are putting together a trip completely on your own, airfare and lodging should be the first items that you book.   They are usually the most expensive, so it is good to...

Navigating the Grand Canal in Venice

The city of Venice is split between the mainland and an island.  The airport and actually, most of the city is on the mainland, while the well-known historic center is on the island.  Shaped like a fish, the island is divided into approximately two halves by the winding Grand Canal.

The Canal starts by the mouth of the fish and the central train station connecting the city to the mainland.  It winds around under the Rialto Bridge and ends near the tail of the fish by the Plaza of San Marco.

Much of Venice is walkable, but the water buses, or vaporetti...
