Who’s itching to travel? With the advance of vaccination and the decrease in the number of infected cases, the doors of the world are opening again. Little by little we begin to breathe easier and gain confidence to leave our houses. I have selected 5 countries that are already receiving tourists to inspire your next flights.
A beautiful country with awe-inspiring scenery and the smell of chocolate in the air. It has the Alps as a backdrop and crystal clear lakes. It’s perfect for taking your time on scenic train journeys. The cities of Lucerne, Bern, Lausanne are among my passions. My tip for lodging in Switzerland is the super exclusive The Lodge, from Richard Branson’s collection of luxury properties in Verbier.
Hidden between Mexico and Guatemala, this tiny country has spectacular natural beauty and a sensational turquoise blue Caribbean Sea. But it doesn’t stop there. It holds a lot of history in its Mayan archeological sites. My hotel tips in Belize are the Blancaneaux Lodge, designed by Francis Coppola with only 20 rooms, and the Royal Belize which is a private island.
Exotic, millennial culture, and full of personality. That is why so many people dream about it. Strolling through the medieval medinas, the souks and tasting its flavors is sure to make you fall in love. The country accepts vaccinated tourists who present a negative PCR result 48 hours in advance. My hotel tip is the Kasbah Tamadot. Sensational in the Atlas Mountains. Choose to stay in a Berber tent.
Suffice it to say that it is the country that receives the most international tourists in the world. Its museums, architecture, wines and cuisine are easy to please. Paris is usually the big star, but there is much more to see and experience like the castles of the Loire Valley, the villages of Provence, the beach towns of the French Riviera or the idyllic Corsica. My lodging tip is the new sensation of the moment, the hotel Le Grand Contrôle, housed inside the Palace of Versailles with just 14 rooms, in a building built 340 years ago.
African country coveted by those who love safari. It is also special because it has the Massai ethnic group, which maintains its cultural traditions. They wear colorful clothes, big discs on their ears and excel in jumping competitions because of their slender bodies. A super tip for lodging is the Mahali Mzuri, with only 12 spectacular tents in the middle of the savannah. To witness the Great Migration, go in August or September.
I hope I have inspired you and brought you more hope.
XoXo and see you next week
