Whether you want to try decadent sweets at Turin's chocolate festival, don a mask at Carnival in Venice or raise a pint of Guinness during St. Patrick's Day in Ireland, the festivals of the world provide so many ways to celebrate.

"The Albuquerque Balloon Festival was awesome and the national parks we visited were truly stunning. Everyone who sees my scrapbook wants to take this trip! It was an opportunity of a lifetime and I thank Go Ahead for offering it."
