There are a number of absolutely breathtaking stretches of coastline in this world. The stretch of coastline on Australia’s Great Ocean Road, the stretch of coastline off of the state of Oregon in the United States, the infamous Milford Sound and surrounding area on New Zealand’s south island, and Ireland’s coastline near the Cliffs of Moher are just some examples of beautiful coastal stretches that will make your jaw drop when you see them. However, one of my absolute favorite stretches of coastline in this world is undoubtedly the Amalfi Coast in Southern Italy. With its seemingly endless stretch of coastal mountains, rows of lemon trees and other citrus fruits, beautiful cities built on the coastal bluffs, and gorgeous beaches that you will never want to leave, it is no wonder that the Amalfi Coast is a favorite playground for the rich and famous. This is why I was so excited to put together my Amalfi Coast Visitor Guide to share with you.
Because of its rich culture and breathtaking historical sites, creating a Córdoba travel guide was one of the easiest and most satisfying projects I have undertaken as a travel blogger. Once referred to as the “Constantinople of the Occident” and “Pearl of Moorish Spain” in because of its blend of different cultures who have, throughout its history peacefully coexisted, the beautiful city of Córdoba is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Spain. While the city is no longer one of the largest in the world, it is still one of the most culturally diverse cities in Europe.
If you have dreamed of visiting the canals of Venice, Italy, but aren’t overly thrilled about having to contend with the large crowds that flock to the beautiful coastal town of Italy, you may want to think about visiting Bruges, Belgium instead. Located less than an hour away from the capital city of Brussels by train, the small town of Bruges is frequently voted as one of the most beautiful cities in Europe because of its breathtaking canals, unique and wonderful architecture, long and interesting history, and tasty cuisine. The city of Bruges might be small, but it is home to more castles per square inch than any other country on this planet. In fact, roughly 50 of the 470 castles that are found in the Flanders region are located around Bruges.
I think Anthony Bourdain said it best when he said, “I’ve long believed that good food, good eating, is all about risk. Whether we’re talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime ‘associates,’ food, for me, has always been an adventure.” When you think about it, he’s absolutely right. If you don’t get out there and try different foods when you travel, then you are missing out on a big part of the adventure of traveling. Instead of avoiding street food, you just need to be smart about which foods you eat.
