Who else gets excited when thinking about traveling to Paris and going to Disneyland? I know I do. Paris is one of the well-known European capitals so rich in history, things to do, and of course, to see. Museums, beautiful architecture, boutique shops, dreamy hidden cafés and the - oui, oui - French way of life.
There are almost nine million tourists travelling to the Down Under each year. No wonder! Even most Australians prefer travelling within their own country rather than anywhere else in the world. Why fly all the way to Europe if so many once-in-a-lifetime experiences are at your doorstep?
Everyone knows that feeling of excitement you get on the day a journey finally begins. I get particularly excited about traveling to faraway destinations.

As South Australia’s capital city, Adelaide is known for food and wine, culture and arts, and hills and beaches. It’s the whole package.

Japan is a colorful, diverse, historically rich country. There is plenty of ground to cover. Let’s begin with Hyogo Prefecture, one of the 47 prefectures, located by the Sea of Japan. Kobe, which also happens to be one of the largest seaports in the country, is the capital of this prefecture.

Located in the Southeastern United States, Virginia is especially popular for travelers seeking to explore nearby Washington, D.C. The national capital is relatively expensive, but parts of Northern Virginia, such as Virginia and Arlington, can be much more affordable.
Texas is known as the land of boots and cowboy hats, but it’s much more than that. Contemporary metropolises such as Houston and Dallas prove that this American state has a cosmopolitan side to it.
Baltimore, the quirky capital of the small state of Maryland, also considered one of the friendliest cities in the U.S., still needs to gain a little more popularity among travelers.

California is a prime destination and on top of many travelers’ lists. I cannot blame them, for the Golden Coast not only is home to popular places such as Los Angeles in the south and San Francisco further to the north, it also holds a number of smaller gems, such as Costa Mesa, that are worth visiting.
Tropical temperatures all year round are what make the Sunshine State a popular place.
