When: Any time
Why: It’s the better Mexico
What to do: Explore Mayan Temples
Any Place Specific : Visit Antigua, Tikal and Santa Flores. Explore the cobbled streets of Antigua and explore the art galleries and churches during the day, enjoy pizza and wine by night. Hike in sunrise to the top of Tikal, common knowledge is that its better than Chichen Itza.. ( you know, that World Wonder) Explore the rest of the old city remains during the day.
Embrace the colours and markets in Santa Flores whilst relaxing the night away over looking the town twinkle.
Why: Some anniversary or whatever.
What to do: Celebrate
Any Place Specific : Vancouver! Apparently Ottawa is actually the place to be for Canada’s 150th but as I’ve never been I can’t possibly fully endorse a recommendation. Nevertheless what more could you possibly want from Vancouver on a summer’s day with mountains and trees all around you? With city beaches and beautiful parks, Vancouver is certainly not a place to miss.
Why: It’s a tiny country with a lot of cheese and chocolate
What to do: Embrace summer and winter in one day
Any Place Specific : Head to Lauterbrunnen, in the Swiss Alps, a delightful little town with about 80 waterfalls and restaurants that offer several different types of fondue.
Whilst you’re there head up to the ‘Top of Europe’ or ‘Jungfrau’ to visit the highest railway station in Europe and the world’s highest Lindt shop. You can hike a little of the way passing waterfalls and hanging glaciers before taking a train up to the top where you will find yourself in a winter wonderland and full on ice cave! Perfect for a hot summer’s day in the valley.
Why: The leaves
What to do : Embrace crunchy leaves, sparklers and hot jacket potatoes
Any Place Specific: Trying not to be stereotypical but London is without a doubt a must, especially when visiting the UK for the first time. Although London doesn’t necessarily have the autumnal leaves of New England, it does a pretty good job of coating pathways and roads with golden red crunchy goodness. Visiting in the Autumn also means that you will avoid the abundance of crowds in the summer, perhaps leading to a more authentic experience. If you are into views head to Greenwich Park and Primrose Hill to check out the ever changing London Skyline.
