Best Travel Destinations by Interest
Often times finding the right destination for your travel goals may be the most challenging part of planning a vacation. I work with clients on this to ensure they are selecting a city or country that is right for the experience they are envisioning.
In this Blog I share 5 fabulous destinations by interest…
For an Exotic Experience – Morocco
So many diverse experiences in this country in the northwest corner of Africa… explore Fes, the cultural capital of Morocco, spend a night in the Sahara Desert (in a luxury tented camp), experience a camel ride in the dunes, then enjoy dinner under the stars, a campfire, and the most breathtaking stargazing. In Marrakech visit the medina, souk and spice market, and enjoy a cooking class before a night in Casablanca. All while staying in the most charming Riads (Moroccon homes converted to luxury boutique hotels). Follow the link for more on Morocco… the Perfect Itinerary.
For a Fairytale Countryside – Provence
Have you seen the fabulous images of lavender fields in France? This is where you’ll find them! All summer, visitors from around the world come visit and capture the most incredible images of these spectacular fields. Explore French villages with local markets, go for olive oil tastings (the region is known for its olive trees), visit Roman ruins and a papal palace… that is Provence!
For Families with Teens – Croatia
With so much diversity, Croatia is the perfect destination for families traveling with teens who may have very different interests. Sitting on the Adriatic Sea, Croatia has so much to offer… history, breathtaking scenery, spectacular islands, exquisite food and wine, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and an upscale culinary scene (several Michelin starred restaurants and many with Michelin recommendations). Some of the islands have lively harbors lined with bars and restaurants. For more, here is a link to a recent Blog on The Best of Croatia.
For Foodies and Wine Enthusiasts - Basque Region
The Basque region is located in Northern Spain, close to the French border. One of the best foodie cities in the world is in this region, San Sebastian. The streets of this lovely seaside town are lined with tapas bars offering mouthwatering small plates with seafood, Spain’s famous jamón (ham), chorizo and many other exquisite dishes. The area is also rich in Michelin starred restaurants. Froe country a day trip to the Rioja wine region of Spain is a must, best known for its wonderful red wines.
For Nature Lovers – The Azores
These nine islands off the coast of Portugal are still a hidden gem. Each island has its own landscape and magic. Here’s what you can experience in the Azores… Lovely towns with mosaic cobblestone streets, not far from these charming towns you can visit hot springs and float in thermal waters, hike to waterfalls, and marvel at beautiful gardens throughout the islands.
