Struggling to decide where to go next or where to pop on your never ending bucket list? Then here are some places that deserve some attention this year. 2016 is set to be a big year for many countries across the globe with world events such as the Olympic Games, new and exciting infrastructure being built and special anniversaries to be celebrated. Here, I’ve listed the ‘go-to’ places for the coming year and why this year will be a special time to visit them. Havana, Cuba Source Traveling to Cuba – especially to the capital of Havana – is like stepping back in time. Old architecture, antique looking shops, colourful homes and classic cars from the 50’s make this city rare and unique. Thanks to the tumultuous relationship between Cuba and the USA, Cuba has yet to be introduced to much Americanisation, keeping its unique culture very much alive. Since the countries have since restored ties in 2015 that is likely to change, so get there quick while it’s still stuck in a time warp.…

Cape Town: Top things to do and see

Cape Town is big, Cape Town is colorful, Cape Town is buzzing and the question is rather what to do not in Cape Town than what to do there at all. The second biggest city of South Africa after Johannesburg has a rich history which has influenced Cape Town ever since. As there are so many lovely things to do and see, what to do and see best in Cape Town? Get up early for Table Mountain Table Mountain is one of the most popular and outstanding landmarks of Cape Town. Not any surprisingly, everyone visiting Cape Town wants to get up that mountain. The thing is just that there is often fog so that you cannot enjoy great views. Plus, it appears to happen that you have to wait incredibly long for a ride, even two hours + in low season! So, if you really want to get up there, get up early – the sky is usually clearer then. Moreover, waiting hours can be less. And no, having bought…

The College Student’s Guide To Studying Abroad

Source Every college student dreams of studying abroad (or at least they should). I mean why not? Doing exactly what they’re doing at their home college, but abroad! I’ve been presented with an extensive list of excuses why not to study abroad; price, FOMO (fear of missing out), fear in general, etc, etc. It’s all BS. College should be a time to step outside of your comfort zone. This includes studying abroad. I’ve created this guide to provide a step-by-step analysis to getting yourself where you want to be. Choosing a Program The first thing you need to think about is ‘what are your academic goals?’ Are you interested in a semester, year, or break abroad? Are you interested in receiving Major related credit? Minor related credit? General education credit? Do you have a specific country you’re interested in going to? These are all questions you need to seriously consider! Believe it or not, there are more programs out there than you could possibly sift through. Narrowing down your wishes will help you locate the perfect program…

Now that you’ve decided to go somewhere its time to pack! I don’t know about you, but while I have a great love of traveling I don’t really?enjoy the packing. I find it stressful trying to decide what to bring… What will the weather be like? Do I have the right shoes for walking? What if I forget something? How many outfits can I fit in the suitcase? Will I feel comfortable and look good in what I brought? Will I look good?in the travel photos? HA! HA! To make matters worse… We also have packing rules in our family. We can all bring?ONE european size carry-on each! No matter how long the trip, no matter the time of year. That’s right, the same amount of space whether it be winter or summer. In fact we only took one carry-on our honeymoon for BOTH of us, that’s right we shared the same carry-on suitcase for 12 days! Thankfully, we don’t?have to share?anymore, a girl’s got to put her foot down, and…
