Since I live in the United States, my first overseas travel – to the totally exotic and beautiful part of the world known as Indonesia – was quite an adventure for me. Traveling alone, going through Customs and Immigration of a foreign country halfway around the world from “home”, was an adventure in itself. Although the idea of overseas travel and leisure vacations is relatively a new thing in town, they have been accepted very well and they are gaining quick publicity and popularity. Many groups are now organizing hiking vacations where they sleep in tents, eco-lodges or in sleeping bags under the stars of night. Travelling is usually through road or on a horseback. Similarly, if the distance is not too far, you can also go on foot. During these types of travel and leisure vacations, you are supposed to carry your food as you will be getting to areas where there are no shops or supermarkets available. Although such an idea may not look possible, it is already in place in most parts of America and Africa. The most populated country in the world is also a huge magnet for tourists. Spectacularly different culturally from the Americas, China offers a wealth of sites and activities such as the Great Wall and the Forbidden City.

When thinking about Madagascar, my perfect trip would definitely be focused on natural life. Towns are amazing and colorful, but the main attractive of the island is the exotic and endemic nature. It seems that an 80{a1d03cf561cb70ec23e2eb854e66ce028eeb773372cc7cae92569f38e2111a4e} of all the flora and the fauna is endemic, and a 95{a1d03cf561cb70ec23e2eb854e66ce028eeb773372cc7cae92569f38e2111a4e} of the spiny desert is endemic too. As many islands, such as the case of New Zealand, evolution has been able to take its own course apart from the main continents, so that the natural conditions created can differ a lot from inland. Most time this remote islands are a good paradise for birds, and when you travel to Madagascar you will also discover thousands of other native species living only there in the whole planet. I had a great opportunity to visit my youngest son, Andy, who spent 4 months at an archeology dig in rural Mexico. It was an opportunity to visit Mexico, seeing and doing things the average tourist would never have a chance to experience. But, I had to balance my enthusiasm to see Andy at an active archeology site with my concern regarding travel in Mexico and the fact that I spoke no Spanish.

There are some places you will blend in and others where you will stand out no matter what you do. Both can work in your favor. The problem is not in looking like a tourist which you can’t always control. The real problem is looking clueless, scared, and gullible. These are the types of tourists that bad people are looking to take advantage of. You can beat a lot of this with common sense and a little planning before you go on your trip. Centrally located in Kensington, the Milestone Hotel & Residences benefits from its home in a pair of atmospheric, late-19th-century former mansions: rooms are individually designed so no two are alike. All guests can expect unique antique furnishings, fresh flowers, and, in some rooms, views over Kensington Palace and Gardens.

With burning eyes and skin, I felt my way to the open shower on the beach and attempted to wash off the salty water that quickly turned to grains of salt deposits on my face and hair. Needless to say, my permed hair was damaged by this experience. But thereafter, I had the time of my life getting those muddy dead sea minerals all over my skin. Too bad I had to wash them off to get back on the tour bus. At the Foundry Hotel, rooms are just as glamorous as the surrounding area. With complimentary travel insurance Wi-Fi, work desks, and marble bathrooms with waterfall showers, the rooms are comfortable whether you’re traveling for work or pleasure. An on-site restaurant has an herb garden, fire pits, and outdoor seating for a uniquely relaxing experience. For example, a lot of people go to Japan simply because they love to immerse in its culture. Tourists go there to eat Japanese cuisines, visit historical places that depict Japanese culture, and even wear Kimono to complete the enjoyment of their trip.

South America is an excellent place today and is getting popular day by day. It has many countries that are cheap and are flooded with scenic beauty and excellent places to explore. Food is just amazing out there while people are friendly in South America. Egypt is also one of the best travel destinations of this globe and is famous for its Pyramids. Apart from Pyramids, there is also a well known Nile river which is a must watch, if you are planning to explore this amazing country. Just about everyone loves to travel, and travel is one of the most intriguing and fun activities one can engage in. Travel provides the remarkable ability to see the world from a whole new perspective, and I for one believe that if people traveled more outside their country there would be far less war and trouble in the world.
