I’ve always been a big fan of Washington, D.C. The city is beautiful and there are so many interesting places to visit, whether you want to enjoy a night out or have a historical, cultural experience. Plus, D.C. is one of those cities that always has something going on— so you can easily plan a trip during any season.
We don’t like the cold much here in Australia. With winter now upon us, most would rather snuggle up under a blanket than go out and explore. But there is plenty to do in Sydney during the winter.
If there was ever a time to put Venice at the top of your bucket list, now is that time. Venice was recently added to the World Monument Fund’s list of places under threat. There are genuine concerns that this magical canal city is, quite literally, sinking.
Bull Temple is a small, peaceful spot located on a hill in Bugle Rock Park in South Bangalore. This Hindu temple is only a 10-minute walk from Gandhi Bazaar, so you can easily explore both places in just a few hours.
I’ll be honest. Up until a year ago, if you had asked me to pinpoint Guam on a map, I might have pointed somewhere near Mexico. I had no idea that this tiny Micronesian island was actually a U.S. territory located in the southern Pacific. But, living in Japan, it didn’t take long before I heard all about this mysterious destination. Since Guam is an easy 3-hour escape from the cold winters in Japan, this island is a hot spot for Japanese tourists.
My friends and colleagues have referred to Guam as, “The poor man’s Hawaii.” Well, if that means beautiful, untouched beaches and wild, lush mountainscapes for half the price – count me in!
