New York City.

While traveling to New York City might not seem like a wild international adventure, New York City actually hosts such a vast number of peoples and cultures that you might think you’re in a different country. Plus, the city is like an animal itself, constantly moving and living in a way that no other city in the world has been able to do. It’s definitely on the must visit list!

Paris, France.

This city is not only referred to by many as the city of love, but it has some of the richest cultural history of any other European city. Paris has hosted some of the world’s greatest artists for centuries, and now it holds some of the most famous forms of art in its Louvre museum.

Moscow, Russia.

For decades, no one was able to visit Russia because it was hidden behind an Iron Curtain by its government, but now Russia’s capital has become a hub of Eastern European culture. With one of the most intricate and efficient metro systems in the world, this city is easy to get around and a joy to tour.

Hong Kong, China.

While travel within most of China is very difficult to organize, Hong Kong is a territory of its own and carries its own much more lenient travel laws. Rich with history and culture, Hong Kong is the perfect place to dip your toes in the vast culture of China and many of the surrounding countries.

Rome, Italy.

Rome carries with it centuries of rich culture from which many facets of our current culture originate. The local language of Italian is swimming with beautiful phrases that will make your mind dance as you stroll the narrow streets and tour the beautiful city full of ancient ruins and modern technology. Besides the culture as a whole, the food in Italy is unlike the cuisine anywhere else. You don’t know Italian food until you’ve tasted it in the heart of Rome.

Traveling the globe can be a wonderful experience, if you take the time to plan ahead. Always know where you are going and prepare yourself to adjust to the culture.

How to Enjoy Barcelona

It is enough simply to be in Barcelona to enjoy it, but let’s see which way you can make it more exciting. You need about two weeks to see all fabulous places of Barcelona and really enjoy them, but if you do not have so much time it is not a big problem. You will like Barcelona a lot even if you spend only one day there. The biggest Barcelona’s attractions are Gaudi works of art like Sagrada Familia, Casa Mila, Casa Batllo, Casa Vicens, Park Guell and so on. Also, Barcelona has many just terrific monuments, museums, cathedrals, churches, beaches, restaurants and plenty of opportunities to go shopping. If you have time you should take a cable car in the port of Barcelona which will bring you to Montjuïc, a broad and flat hill. You will see the whole harbor from above and take many pictures or make a video while in the cable car.

There are a few ways to go around the city: by foot, by bicycle, by taxi and just to take an excursion or a tour. All those ways are good as long as you have made a proper survey on the Internet and know what exactly you want to. If your choice is to travel by bicycle you have to go to the central office of the company providing bicycle services and to pay for some kind of the season ticket. They have bicycles around the city and you will have an access to them any time. Pay attention that you will have to call them every time you take a bike so you should have enough money on your mobile phone account.

There is a nice route for tourists, who do not have a few days but like walking. A few highly amusing and famous places are located quite close to each other and you can enjoy all of them within one day walking or taking a taxi. You can reach Sagrada Familia by taxi, spend some time there and see not just the church but also the small pond behind it. Then you may walk to Triumphal Arch, pass through it and walk along the alley where you can watch a show of street actors who make their living this way. Once, I saw a breathtaking performance of a really professional acrobat. From alley travellers can walk to Ciutadella Park, where they can find the Barcelona’s Zoo and Cascada Fountain, which is just amazing. From the park they can walk along the seacoast and come to the Columbus monument, a very high and remarkable one. On the left, there is a drawbridge, which a lot of tourists and locals cross to get to the shopping mall that is located right above the sea. On the right of the monument, there is La Rambla Street, where visitors can find a variety of shops. It is possible to walk this entire distance within a bit more than one hour but at least two hours are needed in each place, so the trip has to be started early morning. You can to do this with a map. Also, when you get to Sagrada Familia do not be afraid of a very long queue. It is moving pretty fast because they have a few ticket offices. Surely, it is worth to pay a few extra euros to take a lift to the high point of one of the church’s tower and you will be able to view almost the whole Barcelona including Agbar Tower.

If you have an opportunity you should come to Barcelona for at least a week. Nobody has ever regretted it, yet. You will have thousands of pictures taken, videos made and impressions which you will remember for the rest of your life.
