On my trip through Europe my first stop was in Italy, did you know the capital city is Rome. It is a country in Southern Europe. Italy comprises a boot-shaped peninsula and two large islands in the Mediterranean Sea, Sicily and Sardinia. The main language spoken there is Italian. The total land area of Italy is 496.26 square miles. The GDP per capita is $36,267. I did so many cool things out there I don't even know where to begin, my favorite was definitely the water sports that you can do, such as windsurfing, kite surfing, swimming, sailing, and waterskiing. You can even go check out some historical places, or do other activities. I learned so many things that i would love to share with you as well. In Calabria, Italy another way to learn and have fun at the same time is orienteering, which is a sport that was born in the Scandinavian countries to test the sense of direction. The participants equipped with a map and a compass, must reach the goal in the fastest time; they can choose independently the route to take but they have to reach some intermediate stops. You can even try “flying” over these breathtaking landscapes. If you want to do something like this specialized instructors will bring you up in the sky, firmly hooked to a paraglider’s saddle to show you the beauty of Calabria from an entirely different viewpoint. I recommend that everyone and anyone should try an experience like this, there is nothing like it. My second stop in Italy was in the beautiful city of Venice. This city is made of water. Instead of asphalt roads they use water canals and get around using boats. This stunning city is located in the marshy Venetian Lagoon which stretches along the shoreline between the Po and the Piave Rivers.
