Welcome everyone to this whole new series on my blog. I’d like to introduce you to our Guest Post Blog Series! Finally, after some time I have recently decided to let other bloggers/travelers partake into my blog page. I would like principally share their best travel destinations especially their favorite cities.
In the end, I chose to open to read and listen to their top 5 favorite cities around the world. How exciting right?
Today I would like to welcome you a wonderful and beautiful young lady our guest post blogger. A Professional Travel Designer for AlyssaAllDay Adventures and a permanent nomad.
She is a travel blogger who visited more than 65 countries and 5 continents already. Let’s hear her Top 5 Favorite Cities Best Travel Destinations along with her Travel tips and recommendation for us!
Cape Town, South Africa
I spent 3 months in the Muizenberg neighborhood of Cape Town and it completely captured my heart. This city is one of the best in the world because it’s got the whole package.
Whatever you’re in to, you can find it here: surfing, diving, hiking, wine, safari, music, good food, Penguins, and of course, amazing people.
I love that you just can’t stay stressed while being there because of how chilled out everyone around you is. Worries and anxiety melt away. There wasn’t a day that went by that I didn’t discover something new or smile and think that I was the luckiest person alive.
I hope to move there someday and try to give back even a fraction of what the city has given me.
Recommended to do: Learning to surf in Muizenberg
Madrid has recently become one of my favorite cities in the whole world since moving here in 2016. After 2 years of meeting locals, establishing myself as an expat, and learning Spanish, I can safely say it’s one of the best areas for being a digital nomad and working remotely.
With the expat community growing, the resources for a living are becoming numerous. Everyone has been so gracious in welcoming me to the city, that I’m thankful every day I get to live here.
The culture, cafés, markets, and countless festivals give this city so much personality and always keep locals and visitors on the edge of their seats.
Recommended place: The Hat Rooftop Bar
I tend to think that if you visit a city at it’s worst time of the year and still fall in love, then it’s truly a great city. I visited here for 3 months in the dead of winter. What was I thinking, right? Well, after meeting great friends and exploring the heck out of the coffee culture, I was sold.
I made it back for midsummer and of course, it was even better! I love that the people appreciate the sun more than anyone I’ve met. As soon as a decent day comes around, everyone is outside enjoying the light and appreciating nature.
I also adore the concept of “Fika”. It’s a word whose English translation doesn’t do it justice, but essentially it is taking some time out of your day to meet with someone for a coffee. By people valuing other peoples’ company enough to make time for meeting up each day, the city is a brighter, warmer place – even in the dead of winter.
Recommended: Mälarpaviljongen for lunch or a Fika
It’s a huge toss-up between Trinidad and Havana for a favorite city, but I have to go with Havana. The soul of this city pours out of its architecture, music, food, and people. The vibes are so bright and beautiful that you feel the rhythm of the city from the moment you step out your door.
I love the pride the people take in their country. With a difficult past and such rapid current growth, the people stay true to their roots and their love of country just shines.
My favorite part of the city is the music. It’s played from houses, taxis, restaurants, and anyone that’s capable of making it. It’s such a huge part of the culture and brings people of all nationalities together to bond.
Recommended to do: Dinner at La Guarida
Koh Phangan, Thailand
I love this island because I began working at a hostel and spent time here during the off-season. I became friends with locals and expats alike who value living simply and happily and not having many expensive possessions.
Of course some of my favorite parts were the street markets, finding secret beaches and waterfalls, and watching the sunset from Amsterdam Bar. It was so easy to fall in love with the island and began calling it a black hole because I just couldn’t bring myself to leave.
I earned my PADI Rescue dive certification, lost countless pairs of sunglasses, and danced around bonfires on the beach. This island definitely brought out the young and free me.
Recommended to do : Attending the half-moon party instead of the full moon
Disclaimer: I’m not choosing this island because of the Full Moon Party.
