We’ve all been there. Abroad in a fascinating new place but locked in a hostel or hotel room due to inclement weather and no plan. The truth is, bad weather doesn’t care that you’re on vacation. It’s going to happen whether you like it or not. Luckily for you, Travelversed cares.
Today on Travelversed, we’re going to explore the most interesting, feet-friendly destinations that will no doubt satisfy your vagabond shoes. So, lace up your runners, fill up your water bottle, and get ready to immerse yourself in the most walkable cities on the planet.
For some reason, lighthouses are special. Whether it’s their picturesque coastline, the romantic symbolism, or their practical function, the lighthouses of the world have been attracting wayward wanderers for centuries. They’ve come a long way, too. Lighthouses predate defined ports by centuries. The first known lighthouse, built in 285 BC, sat on an island off the coast of Alexandria in Egypt.
We’ve all settled in for a solitary evening at home, steaming cup of liquid in hand, only to hear a menacing creak, an inconspicuous smash, or a non-descript voice. Even the slightest unfamiliar sound can transform a familiar locale in to something eerie and unsettling. Now, imagine an unfamiliar place with a storied history of odd, unexplainable occurrences.
Leading up to the Games, host countries pour billions of dollars in to infrastructure, building stadiums to accommodate the wide variety of incoming events. Not only are these Olympic venues incredibly expensive, but they’re also flat-out unnecessary in the long term.
If there’s anything cooler than a helicopter tour, Travelversed hasn’t found it yet. Why do we love helicopter rides so much? Because they’re romantic, awe inspiring, cost effective, and unforgettable. Why buy a ticket to a local show when you can fly over the city at night? Why opt for a hike when you can take to the sky and enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the mountains?
It’s no secret that the greatest achievements in sports history benefited from the venue that contained them. After all, the pitch, field, park, or area contribute as much to the high-octane action as the players on the field.
