Traveling Italy with your Dog: Venice

If you have never been to Venice I highly recommend you take a private water taxi to your hotel. I emailed the water taxi company before we left to make sure that it would be okay to have Tucker in the boat with us and they were fine with it. It is one of the most expensive ways to enter the city, but trust us, it is an awesome experience!!! 
We quickly learned once in Italy that all restaurants are dog friendly as long as you have a well-behaved dog. You do not even need to ask .....you just walk right in with your dog! [...]

Australia is the most popular country on Instagram!

Australia is the most popular country on Instagram! | Social Media | Scoop.it

Australia has a new claim to fame: being the most popular country in the world on Instagram.

The official tourism Australia page @Australia has just amassed over one million followers, making it easily the most followed national destination page in the world.

The page, which is run by a small team of social media experts, has blown the completion out of the water, with it's British counterpart carrying only 131,000 followers, and the New Zealand account having only 30,000.

It features stunning images of quintessentially Australian icons like Kangaroos, Koalas and distinctly rugged landscapes, with many of the images garnering over 50,000 likes.

 

Tourism Australia's social media team has published a presentation outlining how it uses its @Australia Instagram page to inspire the world to travel to and through Australia. This can be viewed at http://www.slideshare.net/TourismAustralia

Excellent presentation of Australia's presence and success on instagram.

Amanda Morgan's curator insight, December 16, 2014 10:12 PM

It is not surprising that Australia is the most popular country on instagram with all of its amazing sites and beautiful attractions.  Social media is becoming increasingly influential and virtual seeing the world through a cell phone suddenly makes it smaller, while it also advertises for  tourism.

Laura Diamond's curator insight, December 28, 2014 6:48 PM

I thought this article is a great way of showing you don't have to be a pretty face or be able to sing or dance or act to become 'instafamous' a group of social media experts has made the Australian tourism page the more followed on instagram for countries. With over 1 million followers and growing with.

Tipping Guide Infographics: Tipping Culture Around the Gobe

Tipping Guide Infographics: Tipping Culture Around the Gobe | Social Media | Scoop.it

For people traveling to a new destination it is quite common not be fully aware of the local customs and cultural differences in many situations. 
In many parts of North America, a 15 to 20 per cent extra is expected in restaurants and porters carrying your baggage expect one or two dollars per bag, depending on an accommodation category. However, travelers to Japan and China aren't expected to tip services provided. Gratuities might be even extremely costly to some workers in China, since accepting tips can be even cause for being fired.
