I was hopping around a few blogs and stumbled upon the button you see with a themed post for the next two weeks. And, while it's not a Tuesday, I thought I'd write a post to connect with the designated theme of city versus countryside travel and which you prefer.
So............the question stands, which do you prefer? Travel in cities or in the countryside?
For me, I think I naturally lean towards city travel. I wasn't raised to be the most outdoorsy-est person in the world and the introvert in me loves being able to blend into the buzz of a big metropolitan city. Cities also seem to have such energy, which I find magical and it's easy to get lost in that feeling.
|I mean, Florence is one of the world's greatest cities. It just has that 'je ne sais quoi.'|
|Wandering through Amsterdam's bustling bike filled streets and finding the solitude of a quiet canal.|
|Venice- at the start of Carnivale. Incredible!|
|Street markets on weekends that pop up around a city. This one's in Split, Croatia.|
One of my all time favorites.
But for every great city experience, there's always a few awesome sights only to be seen or experienced when you take a few steps back from the hustle and bustle.
|You will certainly not find giant chunks of glacier in the heart of a city!|
|Or be able to take hot air balloon rides over the majestic white mountains of Cappadocia, Turkey.|
So, which do you prefer? And recommend? I'd love to hear from you in the comments!
