Always Wander (Part II)

It’s that time again! Time for another mega trip and this time we flew off to discover Italy. After landing in Venice, Italy and much confusion, we found our water taxi to our hotel.

Weekend in Atlanta

Being able to driving to other states and amazing cities is one of the many advantages of living in the south.
