A Detailed Seville Spain Visitor Guide
The city of Seville in Southern Spain is well-known to most travelers for its incredible beauty, but many travelers are unaware of the deep historical and cultural significance of this amazing town. For instance, if you ask I am sure that most travelers wouldn’t know that Seville is the birthplace of Spanish Tapas, the final resting place of the famed explorer Christopher Columbus, and the location where many of Hollywood’s most infamous movies were filmed. These are just some of the many reasons why the city of Seville continues to be one of Spain’s best kept secrets.
Spain Entrance Requirements – Passport, VISA, Customs, and Immunization Requirements for Visitors
If you are traveling to Spain from outside of the country, you should be aware of the passport, VISA, and immunization requirements before planning your travel.

This is not something that I would wait until the last minute to take care of as you might not have enough time to sort out any issues at the last minute should you run into them.

The Ultimate 14-Day Machu Picchu and the Galápagos Islands Itinerary

Summer National Parks Road Trip
As far as this summer goes, I have been itching to take another road trip thru the American Rockies and American Southwest, and I think the current situation makes this year the ideal time to make that trip happen. I feel much more comfortable driving than flying and it is easy to distance yourself from others when you are out hiking and camping. When things start to open up in the United States this summer, taking a road trip and knocking off some of the US National Parks that I have yet to see sounds like a great alternative to the plans I had to cancel.
The Definitive Quito Ecuador Visitor Guide
At 9,252 feet (or 2,820 meters) in elevation, the city of Quito, which is Ecuador’s capital city, is the highest capital city in the entire world. Not only that, but the city of Quito was also one of the very first World Cultural Heritage Sites designated by UNESCO back in 1978. The city’s beautiful historic center, with its cobblestone streets and beautiful 16th Century stone houses, is absolutely beautiful. Touring this area of the city alone is worth a visit to Quito. Not to be forgotten, Quito is the perfect city to fly into to launch a trip to another Ecuadorian treasure, and the world’s very first Cultural Heritage Site, the infamous Galápagos Islands.
