Snapshot of the Week: Florence, Italy

Ah, Italia. Firenze is easily my favorite city in all of Italy… and maybe in all of Europe!

Snapshot of the Week: New Zealand’s Coromandel Peninsula

Everyone knows that adventure sports are all the rage in New Zealand. But sometimes, life is best lived at a slower pace.
