There are countless top places to visit in the world but unfortunately our choice of top places to visit in the world is limited by time and money. When I am planning my travel, I want as much quality first hand information as I can find. I have created these destination guides of the top places in the world that we have visited to inspire you to travel and fulfill your dreams and to help you save time and money.
Travelers fit into a several different categories. Most of the personal travel blogs I see on the Internet are for adventure travelers and budget backpackers. Our blog is written for a more luxury traveler who fit into the categories of active, bucket-list, arts & culture, and budget slow travelers. Each type of traveler is looking for different information but they all appreciate a curated list of things to do, budget tips, and insider information while planning their trip.
Bucket list travelers know where they want to go and what they want to experience and want direct information about those places and activities. Arts & Culture travelers want to experience the complete culture of other countries including food, music, dance, art, theatre, history and social events. They do a lot of research, reading and trip planning before going. To truly understand a culture takes time. We start with a week visit to a place we would like to explore, then go for a month or more and also make multiple trips if we really enjoy the place.
Food is the most important thing to Foodie travelers and is often the main reason for the trip. We find markets with fresh local ingredients to cook local dishes to be paired with local beverages. We choose our restaurants carefully because we only eat in restaurants for about 20% of our meals on a trip. They have to be significant; either serving authentic local food or a restaurant that makes a statement and pushes the limits of the local cuisine.
As Active travelers we walk many miles every day exploring the area and often hire local guides to take us to their special places and give us the insider knowledge of a place. We have refined the skill of budget travel to an art and we share our tips with you that will save you thousands of dollars, hours and days of frustration, and just make your trip that much more enjoyable.
I hope that you find these destination guides helpful and inspire you to plan your own trip to one of the top places to visit in the world. Check out our blog articles while you are here.
