Country of undiscovered streets of Tuscany, lakes, biggest ancient finds and restaurants with best slices of pizzas, are going to give you new perspectives and different view of reality. One tip, if you decide to travel to Italy don’t be surprised if they greet you with two kisses, one on each cheek. Italians are very affectionate people and aren’t afraid to burst your personal space bubble just to say hello.
Take a bow and welcome to Japan
Japan, land of the rising Sun, spirit, and soul. One of the things that makes Japan such a fascinated place to travel is its extreme mix of historical and modern attractions, both of which includes super-sized robots and hundred years old buildings. You can become a part of an ancient history and samurais or you can control the newest technology in hotels by one click on your phone. It all depends on your personal interests and things that are more appealing to you.
The wild trip to Sri Lanka
It’s really not important if you want to experience all kinds of uncommon caves or to see a Municipality for Coconut development, Sri Lanka gives you an opportunity for that. It represents that exclusive part of the world where you can blend in regardless of the part of the world from where you came from. You’ll be encouraged to put away your devices as much as possible and just absorb all she can give you.
In the end, we can ask ourselves: “How do I choose where to go among all of these destinations?”. I can help you by saying that there is no right or wrong answer, there is only the answer you truly feel. First decide what you want to change and why you waited for so long to make this step and then, following the answers choose your tantalizing destination. Be ready for a change, because trust me it will happen.
