The New York Times runs a great series of travel articles written by Matt Gross called The Frugal Traveller.
An article posted today has a great description of visiting Venice in Winter. The article is heavy on describing travelling with a 6-week-old baby, but we non-parents can skip over those bits. I will be noting down the hotel details for if we ever make it to Venice.
What got me turned on to this column was a 2007 series of a cross-country road trip in America.
To our English readers: The American series give a great glimpse into the diversity and wonderfulness of small town America.
