It¿s almost annoying how people deplaning from a trip to Buenos Aires can¿t stop talking about the countless wonderful things to do, see, buy and eat. From Tango to football to high fashion to great big cuts of meat to wide avenues showcasing one of South America¿s most sophisticated urban cultures, Buenos Aires delivers as diversified a travel experience as any other city in the world right now. With inexpensive travel packages combining air and lodging with sightseeing and shopping, the capital of Argentina is holding up well as one of the more exciting travel experiences in the early part of 2006.
It¿s a shame that most Americans probably aren¿t as familiar with travel destinations in northern Africa along the Mediterranean as they are with the European counterparts across the Sea. Either that or their ideas are so outdated that fear is the dominant factor. Case in point: My sister is planning a trip to Morocco this spring--which our parents have visited, albeit nearly 20 years ago--and Mom hit the Mom panic button. My sister gave her a current events briefing, and cited friends who visited there and came away not only unscathed but raving about it. Naturally, Mom remains wary, but at least she¿s duly informed. The lesson here: Travelers can often serve as country¿s best unofficial ambassadors to the world, so pay attention when your friend who¿s just been somewhere unusual starts talking or forwarding digital pictures.
Everyone in our small group of six was excited to spend a couple of nights there and we all hoped we would get a chance to meet a real-life geisha or maiko. I had never visited Kyoto, but I felt like I had because of the countless pictures and scenes from movies. After visiting this spectacular place, however, I realized I didn't know jack about it.
Get the latest on where to stay, where to eat, what to do and more in British Columbia.
