This is really a travel goal! I envy this travel blogger who almost travel the whole world! If you are planning to go on vacation, check out her blog and her recommendations of 101 cities you need to visit.
Out of all the places I have been in the world as a full time travel blogger, “where is your favourite place?” is a question I have never been able to answer definitively. Thus I present to you my series of “101 Places to Visit Before you Die”, covering the very best cities, towns, hotels, experiences, and everything travel related to make your bucket list complete. The first in this series highlights the absolute best cities to visit before you die, from the clichés through to the best kept secrets this world has to offer!
1. St Petersburg, Russia
The history and sheer opulence of Russia’s imperial capital will leave you speechless. Made great by Peter the Great himself, St Petersburg was the beating heart of Russia un till 1918, when the government bodies moved to Moscow. To this day the city presents itself as a time capsule, showing insight into Russia’s imperial past – complete with palaces, nobility residences and iconic monuments. Be sure to step inside the Hermitage Museum (pictured) for a glimpse in to the legacy of Russian royalty and aristocratic culture.
2. New York, USA
A world in itself, there is no city in the world that will ever come close to New York. Whether you’re eating pasta in Little Italy, celebrating New Year in China Town or cafe hunting your way through Brooklyn, you can most certainly be forgiven for forgetting your place in the world. Bright lights, yellow cabs and art deco architecture are just the beginning of your New York Minute.
3. Paris, France
What would any list of the best cities in the world be without my favourite city of all; Paris. Known also as the city of light, Paris is a hopeless romantic’s dream (myself included). Be it cruising down the Seine with a croissant and glass of bubbles in hand or kicking back at the Eiffel Tower for sunset (also with some variety of pastry and bubbles in hand), there really isn’t any way you cannot enjoy yourself in Paree!
