16 Places to Visit in 2016

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.

How to be a traveler, not a tourist

There is a world of difference between the two groups of holiday makers. Essentially, travelers immerse themselves in the culture of a place. They learn the history, grow from experience and appreciate religions. Tourists stay in luxury, spend a majority of their time on tour buses, take photos of the pretty monuments, buy tacky souvenirs then fly home with nothing new learned except for how to take a good photo. Whilst there is no problem with being a tourist, if the traveler experience is what you want to get out of an overseas vacation, then follow these tips. You will never be called a tourist again!

New Year, New Adventures

Well I welcomed in the New Year in New York, which has always been a dream of mine! I didn’t watch the ball drop, which had always been on my bucket list, but there’s many reasons why. Having lived in New Jersey for the semester, everyone warned me against it. Standing in the cold for hours, not being able to leave (even for the bathroom) or you loose your spot, below freezing temperatures etc. Not what I had in mind. My 2014 has been filled with many adventures and 2015 is only going to bring me more.

European tour companies

Ever wanted to travel Europe? Well tours are a great way to do so, with so many countries in such close proximity to each other, you can see so much in such a small amount of time. They are a great way to meet new people, see the best sights and learn interesting history along the way.
