Sightseeing in Italy: Venice

A short travel around the world

My name is Maria N. Selina, I am 22 and together with my family I have seen a lot of different places. Among others I have been to Greece, France, England, Turkey, Italy, Dominican Republic, Thailand and Denmark. Right now I stay in Liverpool, a small lovely city with the most beautiful library I have ever seen. Right now I am doing an internship at Hola People! Manchester is nearby but not as beautiful as this little town that easily feels like home.

 

Italy

Murano and it's Beautiful housesI have also been to Italy two or three times, Italy is one of the countries I love the most. With a camper, we went down all the way down to the “shoe” of Italy and the way up again. I have seen Venedig. A city that I liked but it is a very crowded place, nearby you can visit Murano. This a truly amazing place, instead of going to Venedig you should visit Murano, it looks the way you expect Venedig to look like and is not as crowded as Venedig.

I have seen a lot “must see’s” in Italy, but you can read about them anywhere on the internet. I have some places you should definitely see that maybe you did not know About.Pompeji, the city that got fired by the Vesuv - history The first one is quite popular but not as much known as the Colosseum, the place I am talking about is Pompeji. The city got fired by the vesuv, if you are interested in history you should definitely visit this place.

Another tip is Isolabona. If you want to go there, do not take a camper with you, we were driving to such small streets that we were afraid to stick in with the car. Isolabona is building upon a hill, the streets are very tight and you can discover something at any street. You can get the full Italian feeling in here.

 

Greece

Two years ago I saw Greece for the first time in my life.

Why German is an important language to learn

Have you ever considered studying the German language? Here are some reasons why studying German is a good idea!

1- German and English have many things in common.

The West-Germanic language is the mother language of many modern and widely spoken languages, such as English and Dutch. If you are a native English speaker, German will be easy to learn as both languages have a lot of vocabulary in common. Some examples are ‘Good morning’ and ‘Guten Morgen’, ‘football’ and ‘Fussball’ or ‘book’ and ‘Buch’. 

If your native language does not have West-Germanic roots, do not worry! There are more reasons why German is one of the most important languages to study.

2- German is very useful if you are traveling in Europe.

As mentioned earlier, many West-European languages have German roots, which means that the German language is very popular in Europe.
