Traveling is always so overwhelming and mind-blowing. For me, it’s like an escape – escape from your surroundings, escape from your daily routine, escape from all the worldly stress. In fact, traveling is an escape from yourself too. It is great, so overpowering that it can help you to resuscitate your inner human being. It is like a time machine, you sit in it and lands where you want. It is a period of unconsciousness, yet it beholds something knowledgeable no one can explain that to you. Traveling is all and all, irresistible, tempting, and appealing. In short, every now and then, a person should keep himself away from all his daily tasks, pack his bags, and set out. Not necessarily with someone as traveling alone also is a terrifying and exciting adventure. And of course, the time you spend alone for just yourself can never be useless.

1. Venice, Italy:
Is someone out there who could say that Italy is not a country to even spend for vacation? I can hear not a single ‘yes,’ although I absolutely cannot hear, but, to my imagination, no one can resist himself from going Italy. As the most awaiting festival sets its date in the February, named as The Carnival of Venice, you can visit the city to enjoy this blissful traditional festive which is being celebrated by its inhabitants in the first two weeks of February.
The tradition has been dated back to the 12th century and every year the local wanders and visitors join and celebrate it in the form of masquerade balls dancing happily in their unique costumes in Piazza San Marco.
