Broaden Your Horizons: 3 Countries You’ll Want to Explore

Travel Blog, Travel Tips - Ross French - December 18, 2017

Choosing where to go traveling is a difficult question to answer. In a world, so vast, diverse and beautiful, trying to pinpoint one exact location to explore is near impossible. What is needed is a little inspiration to lift us out of our routines and get us thinking about what we want to get from going to a new land, and what experiences we want to take back with us into our lives at home. Do we want picturesque views to longingly look at while sipping a cool glass of wine, a wild adventure, trekking across mountain ranges, or to be plunged into a culture and history far removed from our own? Whatever it is you are looking for, this guide will give you the inspiration.

The best way to choose where you want to go is to decide what you want to experience. By having a travel goal, you can easily narrow down where you want to be.

Seeking Romance – Italy

Throughout history, Italy has become synonymous with romance through an endless waterfall of poetry, music, and literature that has permeated our cultures as well as influencing our ideas about what love really is. The sunny climate, quaint little streets, and stunning architecture make Italy a country rich in culture and beauty. It is the perfect getaway for couples or newly-weds to indulge in the finer things in life and live out their romantic fantasies.

Finding Thrills – Nepal

For some of us, a holiday is about that out of the ordinary, once in a lifetime experience that will be talked about for years. The more adventurous of us may consider the truly unique wonder of trekking in the Himalayas. The country of Nepal is home to eight of the world’s highest mountains, including, of course, Everest, and so is the perfect place for climbers and adventurers.

Discovering History – Germany & Greece

If the past interests you, Germany might be the place to go. Berlin is brimming with historical sites such as the 1945 Olympic Stadium or the underground shelters that can still be seen running just under the train stations of the city. There are many walking tours and bus excursions to see, for example, the ruins of the Berlin Wall and Check Point Charlie, many of which are in English.

If it’s ancient history you’re after, then why not visit where civilization actually began in Greece. Witness the majesty of the Acropolis, the Valley of Temples or the archaeological site of Olympia, where our modern Olympics came from.

Make it Yours

Every country and culture is individual, much like our travels should be. Once you know what you want, read material from a reputable travel guide site such as www.mrhudsonexplores.com to get a deeper understanding of what amazing experiences are out there to enjoy and tell stories about for years to come.

The world is a vast and stunningly diverse place that is just waiting to be discovered, and there is no reason good enough not to see it!
