Rent a soft surfboard your very first time out. Don't invest in your own surf board if you've never ever attempted surfing before. At a lot of beaches helpful for surfing, rental areas will be offered near to the beach, offering reasonably inexpensive.
Venice, Italy looks to be the loveliest place. Doors and windows everywhere. It is just so whimsical. I hope that I get the chance to visit. Next January, when I plan to take ECON in Italy, I want Venice to be a city I see.
