36 hours in…Slovenia

Download PDF

Ljubljana, Slovenia is definitely a city I would want to visit. Plenty of green space, which means lots of fresh air and no city traffic because cars are expelled from the historic city. The city is bike friendly, which is how most get around. Or just old fashion walking. Taking long strolls and enjoying the scenery always sounds refreshing. On foot you can visit the many different specialty cafes and pubs. The cost of visiting doesn’t seem like it will cost you much either. The many restaurants and cafes that can be visited during your stroll is very cost efficient. Museums also are very inexpensive. Last but not least, another great activity I would love to participate in is the blind wine tasting pop quiz. You can get an education on wine in several different brands.

36 Hours in…Madrid

With prices being relatively low and affordable, Madrid would definitely be a tourist friendly playground.  The younger artistic generation seems to greatly appreciate the night life and energy of the city. Madrid would for sure, be a on my many list of places to visit. They are big on wine, beer and a chilled glass of champagne after a delightful meal. Which I to would appreciate. The food in Madrid also seems colorful, vibrant, light and fresh. Anyone can appreciate that.

Perugia, Italy as in interesting read. From the reading in “36 Hours in…”, Perugia comes off as a very old city with lots of history. The city is visually spectacular and breathtaking, it is not a place I would want to visit right now. Perugia seems like a perfect tourist location for historians and photographers. The city has many museums worth visiting. There is also a great amount designs and architecture that dat as far back as the 13th century. Perugia is definitely a place to visit if you’re not into the night life and just looking for history.

36 Hours in…Vancouver

From the article I’ve read, Vancouver is a city definitely worth visiting and exploring. It is always evolving and has become a huge playground for artistic creativity. Whether it’s referring to food and fine dining, museums, its beautiful skyline over the coastline or the plethora of food markets. It seems to me like a breathtaking city and leaves a lot to the imagination. Like New York, Vancouver is a melting pot of different people, cultures and ethnicities and the the city caters to everyone. Being a food lover, there seems to be many different fusions and restaurants I would visit. And from what the article stated, it seems like a days out on the town won’t cost you a lot. It’s a great tourist spot if you are into learning and experiencing new things. I like the idea of just renting a bike to touch on different parts of the city to simply explore and be absolutely fulfilled.
