Venice, Italy is one of the most fascinating, beautiful, and complicated cities in the world. The city is in a permanent battle with mother nature, trying to prevent their land from being stolen back by that which makes it so remarkable, the water that surrounds it. This video is a bit dorky, but it gives a really good overview of how the city came to be and remains to be what it is today. It's well worth a watch.

Gold Coast Boat Rental
Driving a rental boat through the canals of the Gold Coast

The Gold Coast is famous for being one of the premier tourist destinations in Australia.  There are so many things to do on the Gold Coast, it's impossible to do everything in one visit.  This means you have to choose wisely.  For those of you who don't know anything about the Gold Coast, it's set on a VERY long stretch of beach on one side, and an intricate system of canals on the other.  It actually has more canals than Venice.  I've been living here for the past 4 months, and my time is ending in a week, so I'm scrambling to do everything I've not managed to do yet.  This afternoon we decided to rent a boat and cruise the Gold Coast Canals, and it turned out to be one of my favorite things to do here.
