Our travel guides, which are curated by Travel + Leisure editors and a network of local correspondents, highlight the best hotels, restaurants, shops, bars, and things to do in the world’s most exciting destinations. That said, I have two girlfriends, Nancy and Susan, and every year on our birthdays we go to a few far away special places, have lunch, special desserts, cruise the shops (which I can take or leave but since they are with me I don’t mind it. We are wild and crazy. Sometimes we do something fairly local and do weird things. We’ve also had good times after medical procedures where one of us is loopy. You never know what will happen. @Vinaya Ghimire – Yes, Israel is a wonderful travel destination for a once-in-a-lifetime holy land experience. And judging by your tone, Nepal sounds like a great place to visit too. Paris, New York and London are few well known destinations of the world. These are famous all over the place and everyone wants to explore these amazing cities at least once in their life time. But there are few travel destinations which are getting overcrowded and thus, tourists try to neglect such places and look for a better place for their vacation.

While I spend most of my time to the north of the Boundary Waters is its sister park, Quetico, both are an incredible experience. And thanks for sharing yours. The beauty, weather, and culture of Manali is totally different and unique from other hill stations. I have traveled to many other hill stations in India with my friends and family, but when I visited Manali for the first time in June 2010, I found that Manali is the best out of them. Before my visit, people used to say that Manali is the Switzerland of India and I have travel insurance found that this is totally true. GPS or the Global Positioning System, is a revolution and a blessing, at least for the people, who are not very good in navigating, if they are traveling to a place for the first time. As an added bonus, most museums stayed open for tourists, The New York Times reported , like the Topkapi and Dolmabahce palaces. Near-empty ferries shuttled visitors across the Bosporus. Even restaurants in the old city of Sultanahmet, while supposed to close to in-person dining, secretly opened for tourists.
