This time of year, post summer and pre holidays, is one of my favorite times to jump on a plane and explore an exotic or interesting part of the world. If the travel bug is hitting you too, here are a few places worth checking out.
Vietnam is one of my favorite places to visit - the people are friendly and welcoming, the food is divine, and the scenery is heavenly.
My trip to Vietnam included the following destinations (in order):
1. Ho Chi Minh City
A vibrant city with delicious Pho, markets, and museums.
2. Nha Trang
Gorgeous beaches and spectacular scenery.
A hustling city reminiscent of Vietnam's past yet still drenched in the vibe of today.
4. Halong Bay
One of the most beautiful places in the world!
2. Puerto Rico
Dynamic culture, rich heritage, local flavors, and beautiful beaches. Its Old San Juan neighborhood features colorful Spanish colonial buildings and El Morro and La Fortaleza, massive, centuries-old fortresses.
If you love music, dancing, drinking, art and cigars Havana, Cuba is the place for you. It is truly a wonderful 24/7 celebration everywhere you go, from the streets to the beach, inside and outside, but mostly outside.
4. Paris, France (but, of course)
How is it possible for anyone not to fall in love with Paris?? The food, wine, history, culture, art, people, architecture, food (yes, definitely worth putting in twice)... it's an endless list of exploration. I mean, all roads lead to Paris, need I say more!?
