Bilbao, Spain

BlogPhoto_Bilbao

I wasn’t sure what to expect from Bilbao after hearing so-so comments from other travelers, but as always I went with an open mind. I got lucky with beautiful weather and ended up meeting some really nice locals, so I have to say it beat my expectations! The Guggenheim is really impressive, both the building and the exhibits I saw. Walking along the river lined with huge green trees you can’t help but be happy. Plenty of outdoor cafes to enjoy. Driving is tricky, the streets are a set of windy one-ways, but I managed! In the end I wished I had more time to spend there.

Monument Valley, Navajo Tribal Nation, USA

Adventure_10

Monument Valley just has to rank in the top 5 natural places to visit in the United States.  It is a must see for anyone traveling the southwest.  Pay the fee to travel the 17 mile loop in the Navajo Tribal Park.  You won’t regret it.  Just make sure your auto has good shocks because it is a dirt road with plenty of bumps and ruts.

Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

I guess I am kinda biased since I live here in Melbourne.  But I’m a USA expat originally from sunny California.  The reasons why I love Melbourne:
1. Fabulous coffee.
2.  Great playgrounds for children.
3.  Amazing food.  Chin Chin located in the CBD is yummy.
4.  The cockatoo’s and parrots that fly by when you are walking around town.
5.  Great shopping.
6. It’s only a 20 minute car ride in any direction and you can see wild kangaroos and the rugged wild terrain.
7.  The people are friendly.
8.  It’s easy to get around without hoping in a car.  The public transportation such as a tram or a train are cheap and it’s easy to understand how the city is mapped out.
9.  Mornington Peninsula is beautiful place to go to getaway for the weekend.
10.  Bells Beach is a great place to go surfing.

Punta Arenas, Chile

I am still not sure why I went to Punta Arenas! The city is big and felt lacking in any sense of vibe or culture. Walking around the town many places were shut down (not just for siesta hours), it just felt like there was no life to the place. I visited an old house that was converted into the Museo Regional Braun-Menéndez which was interesting enough. Puerto Natales up north held much more charm for me.

Fes, Morocco

BlogPhoto_Fes

Fes is a hidden pearl where an ancient culture is persevered and not as influenced by tourism as the more common tourist destinations. Getting lost amongst the narrow labyrinth-like streets of the old medina is an unforgettable experience. You have everything in Fes, vibrant markets, delicious food, beautiful architecture, the sun and a culture like nothing else. I fell in love with the Moroccan vibes, and I bet you will too!

Charleston, SC, United States

Charleston is a great place to visit. The city is full of history, as it was founded in the mid 18th century, at the start of our country. Walking thru downtown, you’ll find statues, parks, old buildings, and a deep culture that enlightens visitors with where we’ve come from.
