    I have heard many times that a trip to Venezuela would be a great trip.The beaches are beautiful and the scenery offers a photographer many gorgeous opportunities. On the same note I have heard that it can be dangerous, especially for Americans. Many places loaded with beauty have risks that need to be taken. This article was well written and offered much information about the topic, I would love to see Venezuela but would worry about bringing my family.
