{{eventsitem| Bay to Breakers, San Francisco|19 May 2013| The 102-year old Bay to Breakers 12K is one of the world’s largest and oldest footraces held annually in San Francisco.

World-class athletes compete and “fun-loving” folks flood the streets clad in everything from outrageous costumes to birthday suits—earning Bay to Breakers a reputation as the Mardi Gras of the West. Bay 2 Breakers began in 1912 to help locals get over the devastating San Fran earthquake of 1906. Almost 100 years later Bay-Breakers is the longest running footrace in the world.

{{eventsitem| 55th International Art Exhibition, Venice|1 Jun- 24 Nov 2013| The title chosen by curator Massimiliano Gioni for the 55th International Art Exhibition is Il Palazzo Enciclopedico / The Encyclopedic Palace. Massimiliano Gioni introduced the choice of theme evoking the Italo-American self-taught artist Marino Auriti who “on November 16, 1955 filed a design with the US Patent office depicting his Palazzo Enciclopedico (The Encyclopedic Palace), an imaginary museum that was meant to house all worldly knowledge, bringing together the greatest discoveries of the human race, from the wheel to the satellite. Auriti’s plan was never carried out, of course, but the dream of universal, all-embracing knowledge crops up throughout history, as one that eccentrics like Auriti share with many other artists, writers, scientists, and prophets who have tried - often in vain - to fashion an image of the world that will capture its infinite variety and richness."

Gaudi Lizard Parc Guell.jpg

Barcelona is Spain's second largest city and the capital and largest city of Catalonia. This beautiful city, located directly on the northeastern Mediterranean coast of Spain, has a rich history dating back at least 2,000 years. Barcelona is full of what European cities are known for- outdoor markets, restaurants, shops, museums and churches-and is fantastic for walking with an extensive and reliable Metro system for more far-flung destinations. The core center of town, focused around the Ciutat Vella ("Old City") provides days of enjoyment for those looking to experience the life of Barcelona while the beaches the city was built upon provide sun and relaxation during the long periods of agreeably warm weather.

Red Rocks in Sedona.jpg

Sedona is a town in Arizona, United States of America, 120 miles north of Phoenix. Known for its beauty and serene setting amidst the beautiful Red Rocks, the town is famous for its vibrant arts community with nearly 100 art galleries and events. It offers excellent outdoor adventures, including mountain biking, hiking and off-roading. Sedona is surprisingly sprawling, with Oak Creek to the south, West Sedona and Uptown Sedona each providing great views, hikes, dining and arts.
