Sometimes the best way to explore is to just wander. That’s exactly what Lucy and Misako did during their time in Amsterdam. They let their curiosity take over and found some wonderful gems along the way. Find out some of the best places they recommend to the next curious traveler.
April in Amsterdam – a little windy, a little chilly, and a whole lot of fun. This quaint little city is a great destination for a weekend getaway. It’s big enough that you won’t run out of things to do, yet small enough to make you feel at home in just a few short days. There are the must-sees such as The Anne Frank House and the Rembrandt and Van Gogh museums however, I would also highly suggest renting a bike and getting out of the city and into the beautiful Dutch countryside.
1. Rio de Janeiro
Rio has certainly been a popular destination recently. This past year, Rio de Janeiro hosted the 2013 World Youth Day and this upcoming summer they will be hosting many FIFA World Cup games, including the final! In 2016, this destination will also be the first South American city to host the Summer Olympics. But the excitement doesn’t end there, with beautiful landscape, laidback beach culture, and of course, Carnival, Rio de Janeiro has landed itself as our number one destination for 2014!

If you are half-decent at riding a bike and are not intimidated by traffic then definitely hop on a bike tour as a means of introducing yourself to a new city.

Remember you are riding around in a large group – the chances of getting hit by a car are very slim (particularly in Germany where the penalties for drivers are very high!). A bike tour is a great way to get your bearings in a new city while also learning a bit about its history. (more…)
