     Once you had your fill of the romance of  Paris, head to the French Riviera (Cote d’ Azur) and bask in the beautiful beaches of Saint- Tropez, Cannes and Nice. What used to be the playground of the rich and famous is now accessible to the usual tourist. Here you can enjoy the glistening waters in the beach resorts, visit great museums including Musee Picasso in Antibes or satisfy your appetite for the French cuisine in one of the outdoor cafes on the promenades.

Why You Should Visit Spain?

     Let me start with the food – Churros for breakfast, tostada with hamon for lunch and paella for dinner. If these don’t entice you to hop on the next plane to Spain. Then how about a glass of Sangria on one of Barcelona’s urban beaches? Or maybe a trip to the Basque country after your weekend break in Madrid. There you can enjoy the riverside views in Bilbao or visit the Guggenheim museum.

     Better yet head to the up and coming resort town of San Sebastian. Famous for its scenic promenade overlooking the two beaches Playa De Concha and Playa De Ondarreta. If you are a food enthusiast then thank the heavens. As San Sebastian is one of the cities in the world that holds the highest number of Michelin stars.

Italy

     The Italians are known for their love of the sweet life, la dolce vita as they say in Italian. They are also known to take their sweet time in almost anything but mostly for food. Everything stops at siesta when everyone goes home and enjoy a feast shared with friends and family. This laid-back attitude is one of the reason travellers keep coming back to Italy aside from the hospitality, the food and the beautiful Tuscan sun.

  1. I don’t think you need a reason to visit these countries, all of them speak for their own. There are so many beautiful sights and things to experience when you go to these countries. Aside from the rich history, you get to see wonderful architecture!

  2. Of all these countries, the one on top of my list is Spain. I really like their culture and although all of them have such rich histories, I don’t know what it is that draws me more to Spain.
