Favourite Tropical Vacation Spot:
Machu Picchu, Peru – As ridiculously expensive as this place is, it is worth every penny.
Angkor Wat, Cambodia – the largest religious monument in the world, this is somewhere you need to spend at least a couple of days!
Iguazu Falls, Argentina/Brazil – Make sure to visit the falls from both countries, the different viewpoints are worth it.
Iceland also has many breathtaking waterfalls, one of my favourites being Svartifoss (Black Fall) is a waterfall in Skaftafell.
Favourite European City:
Budapest, Hungary wins hands down. With excellent nightlife, this lively city is constantly changing although it keeps it’s historic past alive.
Best Ocean-Front City:
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Rio is undeniably a beautiful city – set in the Harbour of Rio de Janeiro (a Natural Wonder of the World) this breathtaking city has gorgeous beaches, excellent hikes and a crazy fun atmosphere (especially during Carnival)!
Favourite Asian City: We’re currently spending a month in Chiang Mai, Thailand and absolutely love it here. And we’re not alone – Chiang Mai is crawling with expats and nomad workers. Blog link and more info to come.
Favourite Wine Region:
–> Italy is filled with wine as well, but the entire experience in Argentina was something else. Much more so than we found anywhere in Europe. In Croatia we visited a winery advertising “wine tasting” and when we showed up the response was “what do you want?”; you had to pay per glass and when we asked our options, they were bluntly put “red, white, or rose” with not details about the grapes.
–> Another perspective that is equally beautiful but very different: Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon, Iceland
Máncora, Peru – This town deserves a mention on this list not only for it’s sunsets but its laid back vibe and our awesome beach bungalow
Most Picturesque Beach:
Varadero, Cuba – Pure white sand and crystal clear waters that stretch for miles on end. That’s what you get in Varadero, Cuba.
Most Fun Beach:
Montanita, Ecuador – it had everything from the best surf to the best parties, beautiful sand and endless beach, along with international food, bars and shops
Favourite & Most Unique Landscapes:
Iceland – Iceland has an incredibly diverse landscape in a very small area and you will find something new and stunning around every corner (highly recommend renting a car here!)
Favourite Foodie Spots:
A top list is necessary in this case:
- Miraflores, Lima, Peru (La Mar – you have to go there)
- Juayua Food Festival, El Salvador (something completely different, tasty and unique)
- Playa del Carmen, Mexico (There’s much more quality to offer here than in resort-covered Cancun: Ceviche Tacos are my first choice, with guac, tacos, burritos and fajitas not far behind)
- Modena, Italy (It’s amazing how many specialties and delicacies originated here, and everyone proudly shows it off)
