Mount Etna in Sicily is a UNESCO World Heritage site and the tallest active volcano in Europe. But one of the coolest parts of when I lived in Italy is that after hiking Mount Etna in Sicily, I can say that I’ve visited the home of a cyclops.

Ever considered visiting New Orleans for Mardi Gras? You should! Mardi Gras is a crazy Carnival celebration where festivities begin three weekends prior to Fat Tuesday. My friends and I went on the first weekend, so the revelry was just beginning. Gumbo, jazz, beads, feather boas – we were ready for it!
It’s always been on my bucket list to go to Carnevale in Venice (Carnevale di Venezia). It’s a centuries-old annual festival that ends the day before Ash Wednesday.
