Going out of your comfort zone is an amazing experience, especially when you are travelling. Most people like to do the same old thing when it comes to holidays and vacations, but now is the time to experience a different way of life. Life is too short not to travel the world and try to visit as many countries as possible. Leave your pessimism at the door and follow our lead as we guide you through the weird and wonderful. Here are several places to visit that you normally wouldn’t consider.
The weather at this time of the year is not very accommodating, which puts people off an Iceland trip. Plus, Iceland doesn’t have the glitz and the glamor that other countries seemingly have in abundance. However, dig a little deeper and you will find a completely different world. First of all, the weather is not as bad as you might imagine, and it also makes the trip more authentic. Secondly, the natural views are almost unparalleled and unlike anywhere else on the planet. And, thirdly, there are spectacular phenomena that occur, such as The Northern Lights. To be honest, The Northern Lights are worth going for alone.
Talk about the other end of the spectrum! Nigeria couldn’t be more different to Iceland. In fact, it couldn’t be more different to a lot of places, but that is what makes Nigeria so special. The good people at Buzz Nigeria believe that Nigeria is the greatest country on the planet, and that is not easy to dispute. Okay, they may be biased, but they have a point. The culture is amazing as song and dance buzzes through the streets, and the people are among the friendliest you will ever meet. To cap it all off, the wildlife, like everywhere in Africa, is exotic and wide-ranging.
Andorra is a tiny country in Europe that is not very well-known. And, why would it be well-known? Europe is full of spectacular countries from Great Britain to Spain, Italy and France. Well, the truth is that Andorra has a trick up its sleeve that levels the playing field. Andorra is one of the best skiing destinations in the world. Located near the border of France and Spain, Andorra is a principality that makes the most of the Pyrenees Mountains by encouraging skiing trips throughout autumn and winter. If skiing isn’t your thing, Andorra is ridiculously cheap as it is a tax haven. That got your attention!
Again, Peru is another country that is dwarfed by its noisy neighbors Brazil and Argentina. And again, Peru is well worth a visit because of the Andes. The Andes is a mountain range that runs throughout South America, and tucked away in the Peruvian Andes is Machu Picchu. Machu Picchu is a citadel that was built in the 15th century, and it is also one of the wonders of the world. A couple of days trek that it takes to climb to the summit are well worth it to see a spectacular, and unrivalled, attraction.
Travelling off the beaten track is an amazing experience and one that you should try and experience more often.
