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.

The Most Popular Places for New Years Eve Celebrations Around The World

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. This year, thanks to Snapchat, I got to see just how people across the world were celebrating the end of 2015. And it got me thinking about all the unique celebrations that take place across the globe. Having always been an optimist of the festive night that leaves most disappointed and of course being obsessed with any excuse to get on a plane, I’ve looked into some of the craziest cities to shout “3, 2, 1” in and why they make the night so special. It’s never too early to …

The 15 Countries To Visit Sooner Rather Than Later

Traveling is something we all love, obviously if your reading this, and the beauty of adventure for some is finding new and exciting places to visit. Well these next few destinations are growing with popularity more and more every year and you best visit before they’re over run with tourists and that little bit less exciting. Croatia Ok so Croatia is pretty popular already, with places like Dubrovnik and Split some of the most visited places in Europe. I had to add it to the list however, because Croatia is currently using their own currency (Croatian Kuna) meaning it is still relatively cheap compared to other European countries. But it won’t be for long. Croatia joined the European Union in mid-2013 and is set to change their currency to the Euro by no later than 2019 (but they can apply from 2016). So get there quick! Morocco Morocco is growing in popularity year after year, but most seem to just visit the cultural hub of Marrakech and that is all but beyond that beautiful city is …

Stepping Out of Istanbul: Day Trips and Weekend Escape Ideas

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. People like Bonnie Meyer, a university student from the Gold Coast, Australia had no idea just how diverse the country is. “I didn’t know much about Turkey before going, I absolutely loved it when I arrived though,” she said. She spent more than a week in Turkey with Istanbul as her base. “If you had the time I would recommend staying a little longer and doing more day trips or even spending time in another city or town,” Meyer said. Day trips: Princes’ Islands (Adelar) Just an hour by ferry from the city centre, a trip to this chain of nine archipelagos islands in the Sea of Marmara is a great way to get out of the …

My 10 Favourite Party Cities in Europe

Europe is the ultimate destination for a lot of things, and you can bet partying is one of those. Other ‘top party cities’ lists will include the typical tourist spots. Paris, Rome, Amsterdam etc etc. But in my opinion, those big cities are not as crazy as they’re talked up to be. Of course they have potential, but most of the time these kinds of places are bursting with historical attractions as the highlight and the nightlife is either far from the city centre, very spread out throughout a large metropolitan or filled with a lot of big tourist traps. A lot of the time you really need to know where to go as a local. And in Amsterdam’s case, marijuana is everywhere and with a huge focus on sex, it isn’t exactly my idea of a party environment. I’ll cut to the chase and tell you what destinations are traveler friendly party spots. Places where it’s easy to find a good party and easy to meet other travelers.
