There’s a pretty solid chance that at least once in your life, you’ve had serious wanderlust for Europe. And it’s no wonder! From its Mediterranean seas to the gorgeous Northern Lights, it’s home to everything and anything you could ever look for in a holiday. 

So if you need a break from Thailand or Bali, why not give the streets of Venice a try? Or perhaps fulfill your childhood dream of a white Christmas? From expert travel tips and learning how to photograph like a pro, to pairing your food and wine like a true Frenchman, here are 5 reasons to chope your ticket to the event all travellers NEED to visit!


1. Learn to take pictures like a pro



While there’s not much a bit of VSCO cam and an Instagram filter can’t fix nowadays, to get those top quality shots, you really do need to have at least some kind of idea of what you’re doing behind the lens. Sure you could shed out a few hundred dollars on a super flashy camera, but what good does it do if you don’t know how to use it?

From 2:00 – 2:30pm, in a FREE half hour session, pick up all you need to know to make blurry photos and wonky landscapes will be a thing of the past!


2. Become a wine expert for free 



Along with gorgeous fashion and the language of love, European countries sure know how to make exquisitive wine and cheese. But if you can’t quite tell your Brie from your Pecorino and you’re more of a sparkling wine kinda person, you may need a crash course before you try pairing them yourself. 

Sit in on a wine tasting session and get all the wine pairing advice you’ll need to impress all your friends and family with your new found understanding of European food.

Luckily for us, this knowledge and experience is absolute free of charge, so be sure to free yourself between 3.00 – 3.30pm! 


3. Learn to cook like an Italian MasterChef 



Of course there’s more to European food than simply French cheese and wine, which is just as well as you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy an Italian cooking demonstration right in front of you. Whether you want to perfect your pasta or just try something new, Chef Leon See will show you how to make an authentic Italian dish you’ll be able to add to your recipe book back home. 

Nothing beats eating Italian food in Italy itself, but making it in the comfort of your own home after learning from an expert comes pretty close.

Check out the cooking demonstration from 4:30-5:00pm, and warm your tastebuds to what’s awaiting you down the backstreets of Venice.
