3 Out-Of-The-Ordinary Getaways For Your Family
Depending on what your family members prefer to visit and experience, decisions could vary from the tropical paradises of Balearic islands or Thailand. All the way to mountain tops of Northern America or Australia if you’re looking to escape the heatwave.
You can also review this article on simple steps to a great vacation. And check out the list of the places you might want to consider going to this summer.
Snow Adventure in Aussie Land
If you are an avid skier and you’d always choose to hit the ski slopes rather than to bath under the Sun, then you should consider visiting Australia this year. Why Australia, I hear you say.
Well, little did everyone know that the southern part of the Australian continent is becoming more and more popular for tourists from all over the world (but most notable people from the European and Northern American continent).
Due to its very close proximity to Antarctica; the region of New South Wales and its Snowy Mountains are rich in snowfall throughout the entire year. And are a perfect destination for those who want to enjoy snow sports in Australia.
Venice of the North
If you are to visit the European continent and you enjoy sightseeing, beautiful architecture, good beer, and fantastic chocolate then Belgium is where you should go.
Apart from all the beauty this small European country has to offer, there is one hidden gem on the southern coast of Belgium. Namely, I’m talking about the city of Bruges.
Dubbed the ‘’Venice of the North’’ because of its big web of canals passing through the city, this town is brimming with medieval architecture and breathtaking places to see and visit.
You can enjoy romantic evenings taking a ride in the carriage down the city streets. You can also just get lazy in the afternoon by the riverbed grabbing a pint of a fine beer. There is very little not to love about Bruges, to be honest.
The Far North of the European Continent
How many of you had the chance to visit Lisbon? If you weren’t the lucky one up to this point, you should seriously take into consideration visiting the ‘’most underrated European capital’’.
Not only that Lisbon metropolitan area is probably the richest in beautiful castles and things you will definitely enjoy seeing (Sintra castle, a statue of Christ – a smaller replica of the one overseeing Rio, famous tourist destinations like Cascais or Estoril…), but Lisbon is known as very budget-friendly as well.
Comparing to other European capitals, it’s astonishing how much you can experience and enjoy in this city and for very little money.
Last but not the least, the old part of town is what gives Lisbon a unique feel; and is where you should mostly spend your evenings enjoying a fine wine and listening to fado.
