Be sure to add the Kimberley in Western Australia to your bucket list if you’re planning an Australian adventure. This diverse region, abundant in wildlife, vast canyons, freshwater swimming holes and outback stations, is easily accessed from Broome via a direct flight from Perth throughout the year, as well as Sydney and Melbourne in high season.
In this article, I highlight two ideal regions in New Zealand where you can go on a variety of immersive excursions that, I believe, will provide you with a good experience and understanding of the landscapes, wilderness and culture that New Zealand is known for, as well as provide an awesome adventure. On North Island, you’ll experience Māori culture as well as volcanic landscapes, and on South Island, you’ll experience rugged wilderness and spectacular fiords.
There’s more to Gran Canaria than Mas Palomas, but you can’t go on vacation on this volcanic island without a visit to this popular tourist attraction. Walk through the huge dunes to get to the white sand beach on a hot afternoon and you’ll start to feel like you’re in the Sahara – I know, because I’ve done just that.
Zakynthos is an extinct volcanic island with stunning coastal cliff views, white sand and volcanic beaches, juxtaposition of ancient with modern Greek architecture, lush landscapes and vineyards, Greek traditions, cuisine and culture!
Another volcanic island to put on your travel bucket list…Pico Island in the Portuguese Azores.
Like São Miguel, which I posted about last week, Pico is another volcanic island that you can see/visit on an Iberian and Azores Cruise, or on a Transatlantic Cruise,
