There’s a reason Melburnians have flocked to this stunning location for decades and why tourism numbers are forever on the up. The charming peninsula is crowded with cute beachside towns all complete with calm beaches of white sand and crystal blue waters and cute fishing jetty’s dotted along the coastline.
Struggling to decide where to go next or where to pop on your never ending bucket list? Then here are some places that deserve some attention this year. 2016 is set to be a big year for many countries across the globe with world events such as the Olympic Games, new and exciting infrastructure being built and special anniversaries to be celebrated. Here, I’ve listed the ‘go-to’ places for the coming year and why this year will be a special time to visit them.
Happy New Year! It’s officially 2016. Didn’t that come around quickly? New Years Eve is a special occasion for people all around the world as it means the start of a new chapter for many people with new goals set, milestones to look forward to and resolutions no one will keep after January 6th. It also means saying ‘adios’ to the good and the bad of the year that’s passed with a bang. A bang of fireworks usually, and maybe some alcohol on the side.
2015 has been my biggest year of traveling to date and as it comes to an end I’m reflecting on the year that was. I traveled around 29 unique countries across 5 continents. Some of those travels with friends, some with family and some completely solo.
Thailand is without a doubt one of the most visited countries in Asia and it’s continually growing in popularity. Backpackers love it as a cheap destination rich in beautiful beaches, delicious food and an exciting nightlife. It also doesn’t hurt that Thai people have been noted as the friendliest in the world.
I owe some of my most treasured memories to travel. Theres a reason I’m so obsessed with seeing the world, and I smile every time I look back at these moments in particular. I was most likely thinking something along the lines of “I love my life” at the time.
When you think of Italian food, you probably think of pizza and pasta. When you think of traveling to Mexico, you can imagine eating tacos, burritos and enchiladas. When you think of Thailand, you imagine delicious pad thai and green curries, but a lot of people wouldn’t know what food to expect in Australia.
Traveling can really take a toll on your hair. New climates, humidity, extreme dry heat, salt water, dirt, sand and everything in between can affect the feel and overall health of your hair.
Whilst Istanbul in itself is teeming with cultural, historic and interesting attractions, the rest of Turkey has much to offer international visitors. From easy day tours to overnight or weekend stays, there is an option for all tastes close by. This is a great way to utilise ones time, whilst adding depth to a prolonged holiday in Istanbul.
Madrid often gets overlooked by travelers who choose to head to the beach side city of Barcelona instead. Before traveling to Madrid I had heard mixed reviews, but this was quickly shut down by my absolute love of the city when I arrived. With an insane party scene and probably even more beautiful architecture than Barcelona itself, it’s hard to decide what to fit into 10 hours of exploring, but I tried my best.
