Five things that make Cuba one of the coolest places you’ll ever visit!

These days it seems like everyone wants to visit Cuba. And even if it’s not already on your bucketlist, you’re probably more than just a little intrigued by this very mysterious country.

 

But what is it about Cuba that makes it seem so cool? So intriguing? So, well, wanderlust-worthy?

 

Any country based in the Caribbean has a certain kind of appeal about it, but Cuba has an added mystique that gets people curious every time. And it’s more than the Cuban cigars and CheGuevera images.

 

Sure, it has an interesting history, a kind of ‘forbiddenness, but beyond the peeling paint, the economic sanctions and those cigars you’ll find a vibrant, resilient country that will get under your skin and leave you wanting more.

Moonscapes and mayhem in La Paz

Moonscapes and mayhem in La Paz

We’re swinging in a cable car high above La Paz, one of the highest cities in the world. It’s an awesome feeling. Below us we can see the curving roads, the cramped buildings, some perched precariously on the edge of cliffs, and the surrounding arid craggy landscape.

At 3650 metres above sea level, La Paz is high, very high. The city sits in the caldera of a volcano giving it an otherworldly feel, a crammed city of more than 215,000 people. It’s chaotic, it’s intriguing, it’s interesting, it’s quite simply awesome!

The lobby at the Fairmont Chateau in Lake Louise stopped me in my tracks, well it wasn’t the lobby so much as the view through the window.

10 Tips for Travelling Solo

According to the 2011 Australian Household census about 1.3 million Australians aged between 40 and 69 live alone.

That’s a lot of potential solo Aussie travellers. Travelling on your own can be daunting. Who will you talk to about the sites you’ve seen? Who will you eat breakfast or dinner with? And you’ll have to work everything out on your own – from reading local maps to working out currency conversions.

Some of our favourite travel experiences

Our tour hosts are a lucky bunch of people, they get to travel the world seeing some of the most amazing sites all while hanging out with you guys - our awesome Two’s A Crowd guests!

From traversing the canals of France, to safaris in Africa, cruises through Alaska and scooter trips through Tuscany, last year we got to see it all, so we thought we’d ask our tour hosts what were their favourite moments on tour in 2016.

It was tough to drag just one moment out of them – afterall they get to meet such interesting people, those travelling on tour and those they meet along the way, and see such awe-inspiring sites everywhere they go – but one moment stood out above all…

Imagine waking up to the sound of the sea and the bluest blue you have ever seen, far away from the crowds. Could this be heaven on earth? Yes this is what I imagine it to be.
