Buffalo City, Arkansas, USA

BlogPhoto_BuffaloCityThe White River and the Buffalo River are both in Buffalo City.

Little known fact about this area, but probably one of the coolest (ok give me at least Top 50… No? Dang.) things you’ve ever heard, the White and Buffalo rivers actually run together at Buffalo City.

The White River is f-f-f-freezing, and in the summer the Buffalo River feels like a hot bath.

SO, when you’re boating from one river to the next, you can put your hand in the water and actually feel the exact place where the rivers meet. It’s only a matter of seconds that it takes to go from a frost-bitten hand to one that feels like it’s melting.

So don’t miss it!

This place receives negative points for accessibility and an overwhelming number of gnats in the summer.

Seattle is full of museums and galleries, great coffee, diverse food and surrounded by some of the most stunning views you will ever see. From kayaking on the Puget Sound, to Mount Rainier’s outline hovering over the skyline you are never far from something to do!

Vienna, Austria

BlogPhoto_Vienna

Vienna, Austria is a European city that should be in your “travel wish list” if it isn’t already. I loved this city, it is brimming with culture and arts. It is stunning to look at and it has plenty to explore and experience. From palaces with vast gardens, labyrinths, and fountains that date back to the Habsburg monarchs, to the colorful, artsy and whimsical building inspired by Hundertwasser. Food, music and museums are a must-experience in this amazing city.

Koh Lanta, Thailand

Koh Lanta is like the ‘middle child’ amongst the islands of Thailand. While most are partying on Koh Penang or checking out the scenery of Phi Phi, Koh Lanta’s long stretches of beaches, caves, national parkland, rock climbing hot spots, stunning sunsets, yoga on the beach, happy hour drinks, sea gypsy villages and the old port town patiently await.  Venture to the other side and it won’t disappoint!

Fethiye, Turkey

The only place in the world you can find Sarcophagi in the streets, Fethiye is a must see destination on Turkey’s turquoise coast. With the Kings Tombs carved into the mountains, the beautiful blue waters of Oludeniz beach (the blue lagoon), the eerie ruins of Kayakoy ghost village, the many hiking options and the rustic nature of the villages nestled in and amongst the city make Fethiye an all round destination to suit any traveller.

Rome, Italy

If you’re an ancient history geek like me then you’ll love this city. My wife and I went for the weekend (which was plenty of time to explore most sites) and found the sites mesmerising. From the Colosseum, to the Pantheon (my favourite), to the numerous Piazza’s, to the Vatican – you are spoiled for choice! Step back in time and enjoy!

Bologna, Italy

BlogPhoto_Bologna

Bologna, off the beaten track for many tourists, and so easily overlooked for Italy. It has skyrocketed to my favorite Italian city ahead of Rome or Florence. It is the city of porticos and stunning architecture, while its medieval offerings, art & artifacts are not as obvious and well know, they are equally delightful and far more accessible. What else is great, the people, they aren’t over run with dealing with the constant flow of tourists, they find us foreigners interesting and are only too keen to ensure you have a good time and get to see the best the town has to offer. Of course the food is fantastic too, but that is a given for where it is located in the heart of Italy’s food production region. GO!

Petra, Jordan

Culture_10

One of history’s most precious jewels, Petra, is hidden in the rocky mountains of Jordan. It is truly one of the most breath taking places I have ever been too. The best part is you can make the journey as physically intense as you heart desires, you can trek the whole way for a 5 hour hike or ride a camel and or donkey handled by the local bedouins. Either way make sure you go all the way up to the Monastery to enjoy the views from the deserts and the multicolored landscape.

Charlottetown, PEI, Canada

I spent 2 days in Charlottetown on my honeymoon one May, discovering quaint shoppes and great seafood, amidst landmarks rich with national heritage. It’s pretty small, so it’s not bustling with activity, but if you’re looking for a lovely place with a slower pace, Charlottetown is a breath of fresh air.
