A Wonderful Experience In France – Top Places To See

Last year I planned to visit France. When you speak of France instantly you picture the Eiffel Tower or the paintings and art sculpture of famous artists like Picasso and Van Gogh. But when you are visiting this magnificent country, the question is what you should not do, as France offers a lot of amazing sights.

My trip was a little strange, I had stacked up a few miles for my trip to France, but they were not enough so I had to purchase air France miles to cover up the shortage in order to get a free ticket. Surprisingly the miles I purchased were extremely reasonable and saved me a lot of money which I used in shopping and sightseeing in France.

Here is a list of places I went to and I would like to share my experience about them with you.

Eiffel Tower:

The first place to hit on my list was the Eiffel Tower. You will find it interesting that the Eiffel Tower was once considered as a monstrosity by the ancient artists, but now it is regarded as one of the finest pieces of art in Paris and all around the globe. Inside the Eiffel Tower you can get souvenirs and postcards with the Eiffel Tower emblem and have your meal at the finest restaurants present there.

French Riviera:

Inside the borders of the French Riviera you will find the famous and mesmerizing tourist destinations Cannes, St. Tropez and Nice. The beaches of this place are perfect for young couples or a romantic getaway as they have breathtaking views. The scene on these beaches also gets wild when the parties start happening in the evening time.

The Louvre:

The Louvre is the most famous art gallery in France and even around the globe. It has paintings of the most talented and great artists of the world like the famous Leonardo DA Vinci. His most famous piece of art Mona Lisa is still the best attraction and is present in the Louvre. So that secret smile of hers is a must to see.

Disneyland:

I was surprised to know that Paris also has a Disneyland. I love joy lands and Disneyland was one thing I didn’t want to miss it has all the featured rides, firework displays, parades and all the famous theme parks which are present in the official Disneyland. But yes, it is not the exact replica, but has some unique France essence in it.

Historic Normandy:

The most famous place in France in terms of history is Normandy. This place has seen too many wars and has fought several of the battles in France. The most famous incident this place has ever seen is the burning of “Joan Of Arc”, in 1431.

Vineyards:

France is not only famous for its top locations but is also recognized worldwide for its wine. I went to the Rhone Valley and enjoyed the beautiful vineyards present there. I even got indulged in wine tasting and joined in grape harvesting. It was truly a French experience for me.

Traveling to France was a unique experience and thanks to the purchase air France miles miles I could save money on my ticket and consume it in other places.

The Enigmatic Newport Rhode Island

Rhode Island’s Newport is a quintessential New England town. Boasting a long history, this city exudes an intimate and romantic vibe well complemented by a gorgeous seaside scenery. These are some of the reasons vacationing couples are attracted to Newport.

Historically, the city’s popularity grew when it became the summer playground for the wealthiest families in the US. That is why, it is hard to miss the exquisite, opulent mansions found all around the city particularly on Bellevue Avenue. Some of these mansions offer tours that provide guests the opportunity to marvel at their magnificent interiors and exteriors and Gilded Age design.

Newport is a marvelous vacation spot year round. But it becomes an even more special and vibrant destination during major festivals and fairs like the Newport Jazz Festival and Newport Folk Festival.
The city is also well known for its historic lighthouses. You can take time to visit some of them by driving. But you can also admire these old structures from the sea. The Rhode Island Bay Cruise allows you to experience unforgettable views of the city’s iconic lighthouses through a 90-minute leisure boat cruise in Narragansett Bay.

Most visitors of this city tend to stay in cozy inns and boutique hotels near the harbor area. And who can blame them as this part of the town is arguably the most picturesque. If you are a fan of nice waterfront dining, then Newport’s excellent ensemble of harbor restaurants will satisfy this desire. But before you can think of dinner, Newport has a lot in store for you during the day. It is an absolute delight to walk around Newport’s downtown as the area is beautifully adorned with cobblestone streets, shops, galleries and restaurants.

Aside from the beauty of the harbor, the dominant visitor action can be found at Thames Street, which has emerged as the main tourist strip in the city. Although you can visit Thames at any time during the day as it is filled with shops, bars and boutiques, the street is at its most exciting self at night. Visitors enjoy having dinner along this strip so if you want to ensure a spot, make sure to reserve well ahead. But if you prefer to go where the locals hang out, head over to Broadway Avenue.

Despite its metropolitan side, you can easily access nature while in Newport. Because the city lies at the southern end of Aquidneck Island, it is surrounded by towering cliffs and nice beaches. This accounts for t prevailing fun, beach and surf culture in this city, amidst its aristocratic reputation. The more than 300 acre wildlife refuge called Norman Bird Sanctuary is also quite close. Here, you can relax on the beach or do some bird watching while hiking. One of the famous hiking routes in this area is the one that leads to the huge jutting rock called Hanging Rock.

Honeymoon in Greece: A Total Unforgettable Experience

Looking forward to a perfect honeymoon destination? The answer is Greece. What a better place than the birthplace of Eros, the god of love, and civilization itself? Check out the unlimited honeymoon packages available, and surely you will find one to suit you. You will enjoy yourselves without having to worry about transfers and ticket accommodations. Everything will be well-organized for you.

Arriving at Eleftherios Venizelos airport, it is a good idea to spend the first couple of days in Athens, the capital city of old civilization. Take a day sightseeing tour of the city, visit the Acropolis or the Museum, and you may wish to go a bit further to Sounio and visit the ancient ruins of the Temple of Poseidon and gaze at the most spectacular sunset. Later at night take a walk in Plaka, along the colorful shops where you can buy your souvenirs or top quality jewelry.

Of course, Athens is not the place to stay during the hot summer months. Arrange to spend most of your honeymoon on the Cyclades Islands. The most popular destinations for newlyweds are Mykonos, Santorini and Crete.

Crete has a lot to offer, as it is the biggest island in the Aegean. There are ancient sites to visit like the labyrinth in Knossos, natural beauties such as the Samaria Gorge, and beaches with crystal clear waters. If you are a mountain lover, you can hire a car and drive up the mountains in central Crete, where you will find many picturesque, traditional villages. If you want your Crete honeymoon to be romantic or luxurious, there are plenty of five-star hotels and resorts that provide all the facilities required to fulfill your wishes.

From Crete you can head north to Santorini. Although you can get there by plane, it is much better to travel by boat so as not to miss the unique scenery of the port, like the windy road leading from the port to the top of the island. You can take a donkey ride from the old port up to Fira, taking in the incredible view of the caldera. Visit Oia late in the afternoon, walk along the narrow cobbled streets and make sure you find a spot at a rooftop to enjoy the world’s most magnificent sunset.
