When is the Best Time of the Year to Travel?
Meta Description: Travel blogging comes with its set of challenges and being a travel blogger, I face many. The major issue while travelling is of connectivity. However, my subscription to Frontier Internet Packages have resolved this issue Summer is the best season for globetrotters to fly to their favorite destinations. This opinion would be unpopular amongst some travelers, if not many. For me, the beaches with glistening sands, the entertaining music festivals, the aroma of the scrumptious street food and the dazzling sunsets make up for a perfect holiday. I avoid traveling in winters as air smells of gloominess in this season. Moreover, many of the popular tourist destinations hide under the thick blanket of snow, not leaving much to explore. Therefore, all or most of my trips take place in summers. The travel blogger in me keeps the family and friends posted about my daily adventures using Spectrum Packages. I do not face any hindrance when it comes to the speed of the internet.
And today, as I sit in Laduree Café in Paris, enjoying my macarons, I would like to introduce you to my favorite summer destinations:
1. Bali, Indonesia:
Bali tops my list of ‘Must Visit Destinations in Summer’. Home to exotic temples, ancient palaces, gigantic mountains and picturesque beaches, Bali is a backpacker’s paradise. A famous honeymoon destination, the sunsets in Bali are one of its kind. I used to treat myself to these sunsets after a tiring day spent in traveling and shopping. During my 6-day stay in Bali, I visited Mount Batur, Tanah Lot Temple, Uluwatu Temple and Wildlife Safari. And on days I did not visit the historic landmarks, I shopped or spent time on beaches. I visited the Petitenget, Kuta and Legian Beaches. My favorite, however, was the Kuta Beach, which is also Bali’s most famous beach. During my trip, I also introduced myself to the nightlife in Bali, which by the way was an experience in its own self. However, I was unable to explore the whole city and would plan another trip soon.
2. Amalfi Coast, Italy:
Second up on my list is the beautiful Amalfi Coast in Italy. With turquoise seas and jaw-dropping scenery, it is one of the most famous tourist destinations in Italy. The region is home to towns that are crowded with multi-colored houses that are a treat for the eyes. Furthermore, some magnificent beaches and coastal walks make the trip to this town worthwhile. The mountainside villas, however, were the highlight of the area. Sadly, I could not visit all the towns in the region. I could only go to Sorrento, Positano, Praiano, and Amalfi. What they all had in common were the brightly colored houses that crowded the coastline and eye-pleasing coastal walks. I hope that I get a chance to visit this picturesque place again and visit the other beautiful towns that I could not.
3. Santorini, Greece:
This crescent-shaped island is becoming popular amongst couples as a famous wedding destination. It is considered a perfect place for a romantic getaway. I, however, visited the island without a romantic partner but enjoyed it just as much (or that is what I would like to believe). The whitewashed houses, clear blue waters, and picture-perfect sunsets make the island a favorite amongst tourists. During my stay at Santorini, I spent most of the time sunbathing on beaches. The black, red and white colored sand at these beaches made them unique. I also enjoyed watching the sunset at Oia, a ritual experienced by thousands every year.
My fourth favorite destination to visit in Summers is Dubai. While the city is crowded with artificial buildings, it is still a sought after holiday destination amongst tourists. I had always heard names like Wild Wadi and Desert Safari as soon as I mentioned Dubai. So, the day I landed in this ‘artificial city’ (that is what I call it), I visited Wild Wadi. There was nothing exceptional about this water park but I enjoyed taking rides as it helps me beat the heat. The next day I took the desert safari and spent the night in the desert enjoying some mouth-watering food while I watched the belly dancer move her body. I spent my third and final day in Dubai visiting famous malls like Mall of the Emirates and The Dubai Mall. I did not have enough time on my hands to visit Jumeirah Beach but I doubt that I regret not doing so.
However, what I do regret is that there is still an array of gorgeous places, which I have not visited. I am a globetrotter who loves to treat herself to a memorable and fun vacation. On most occasions, I travel alone and what keeps me in touch with my loved ones is my smartphone and the Spectrum Internet Plans that I have subscribed to.
