Travel Ideal Road Trip

Known as the paradise of summer and winter sports (just look at the bright white of 4000 plus Alpine peaks and sparkling lakes), Switzerland is where people first skied for fun. Illustrious names evoke all the romance and drama of the glamorous life of high mountains: Zermatt, St. Moritz, Interlaken, Gstaad, the Jungfrau, Verbier and more. Cities like Geneva (the most cosmopolitan), Zürich (the loudest), Basel and Lausanne pull with the artistic and exciting nightlife sometimes incendiary.

Beyond the elegance of après-ski, edelweiss and Heidi is a complex country of living cultures. Not only has four languages ​​(Swiss German, French, Italian and Romansch), but cultural variety to match. You might be munching sausages to beer in a OOM-pah-pah Stübli one day and pasta with a glass of merlot in a granite cave below. And if the excess becomes a problem to try one of the hot springs of the country, Yverdon-les-Bains to Scuol.

The greatness of the best churches, like the cathedrals of Lausanne and Bern, contrasts with the sparkling treasures, but less known, such as fresh or complex Müstair the abbey of St. Gallen (both World Heritage sites).

The list of enchanting towns is endless: from Lucerne with its covered bridge Neuchâtel and its fountains, from Gruyères with its cheese, and Grimentz with its traditional wooden houses of sgraffito-blazoned buildings of Engadine Scuol cities as and Zuoz.

Anguilla

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue – wedding bells immediately come to mind, but what about Anguilla? As fierce consumerism devours many hot places in the Caribbean, this time very little limestone in the sea has so far maintained its menagerie charming clapboard shacks (something old), while in weaving stunning vacation properties silence (something new) in the mixture. Visitors will discover a cultural melting pot (something borrowed), created along stunning beaches (very blue).

One of the most interesting things about Anguilla is small it is difficult to decide whether the island is grossly underestimated or actually earns more noise than it deserves. Proponents cite the lack of restoration of development on neighboring islands (without casinos, nightclubs, etc.), and a serious local environment remains intact. But on the other hand, the extreme price hikes have made ​​the island twice the risk of St. Bartholomew for the jet in September

While the debate will undoubtedly rage in the coming years, most agree that the best feature of the island (besides the sea oh-so-blue) is its malleability – Anguilla is a blank canvas, allowing visitors to design any type of vacation they want. Those looking for opulence and privacy can rent one of the many villas trails, while those looking to immerse themselves headlong into the sandy island culture is satiated with cold beer, reggae rhythms and evening meetings about smoky barbecues . And what is more satisfying than the discovery of a hidden local shelter that serves fresh lobster and a big smile for half the price of big-name joints down the street?

When a popular holiday destination on par with neighboring Morocco, Algeria, the tourism industry all but disappeared when the bitter civil war break out in 1992. After a decade of conflict, the situation improved a little, and some access to the south of the Sahara has been possible in the last couple of years. However, traveling independently, without a car is almost nonexistent, and after the kidnapping of 2003 without driver tourism travelers should be aware of the risks involved.

This shortage of visitors is a real shame because Algeria is one of the most fascinating countries of North Africa. In the dramatic classified by UNESCO n’Ajjer Tassili and Hoggar regions, near the town of Tamanrasset, the tribal culture is very much alive, and the day to day problems common to many Arab countries absent. Algiers, contains a live mix of tradition and modernity, its colonial past remains present. Timimoun city embodies the storybook oasis of the Sahara, and the cozy town of In Salah, is divided in two by a sand dune reptile.
