Venice in a Day: How to Have the Greatest Time in the Most Romantic City

Is Venice the most romantic city in the world? Many think so, and I have to agree. Although small, there are so many things to do and see in the City of Canals. However, if you can only spend a day in Venice, let me help you get the most of your time in the city of canals.  Venice is famous for its elaborate labyrinth of islands and canals navigated by black gondolas and spanned by hundreds of bridges.

Interesting Facts About Alberta, Canada

Alberta is one of Canada’s western provinces that is home to both a diverse population and a world – renowned landscape of lakes, forest, prairies, Rocky Mountains – including glaciers, and badlands scenery.

Delta and United Set Schedules Until the Holidays, Frontier Goes Capacity Crazy

On the surface, the Cirium data made it look like a relatively quiet week in Airlineville. Maybe they were all masked up, isolating in their homes just like I was. Or maybe they were quietly hatching plans for the future. It was most certainly the latter for both the Widget and the Globe. It may not have looked like much, but they both seem to have made their plans all the way until the holidays hit in December. That just seems so far away. Meanwhile, the Animal behaved like a fast-grow...

Translating Armenian Literature.

Garen Torikian writes for Electric Literature about how he came to translate from Armenian: I had the great privilege of growing up in a house with several floor-to-ceiling shelves bursting with books. So far as I remember, they were largely ornamental, but I have a hard time believing that they went unread: my parents were not the hoarding type. One day, shortly after graduating college, stuck at home and with nothing else to do, I began to really look at the books for the first time. Non-ficti...
