Tips for easier travel

Most areas of travel have ‘hot spots’ that people tend to always migrate to. Try to stay away from the tourist areas and explore the less traveled areas. For example: My wife and I recently traveled to Venice and then Florence during what was considered medium season and it was just a sea of people and price gouging everywhere we went. There was a three block long queue of people just to get into the Accademia to see the statue of David in Florence.

We hopped a train and just went into the interior of Italy to little towns no-one had ever heard of and had so much fun, we didn’t want to go home. No lie! We thought the language might cause difficulties but that turned out to be half the fun and we wound up spending just as much money those first three days in Venice and Florence as we did the rest of the two weeks. Think about it.
