Tips / Travel

Like fine wine, some countries just get better with age. That’s why you should visit them more than once. Whether you’ll gain a new perspective because you’re older and have gained some wisdom or because they’re so culturally rich you can’t possibly explore them in one trip, these places clearly deserve a second look.


Thailand is a backpacker’s paradise thanks to cheap rooms and food, but it’s also one of the most vibrant and beautiful countries on Earth. While most countries have only a few hot spots to explore, every inch of Thailand is a treasure that can’t be seen in one trip.


Rome, Venice, Florence, Milan and Naples are just a few of the prominent cities in this historic wonderland. You could easily spend a week in Rome alone and never experience all it has to offer. That’s why Italy is deserving of a second trip, if not more.


Africa has no shortage of extraordinary countries to explore, but the real crown jewel might be Tanzania. From the unique adventure opportunities hidden among Mt. Kilimanjaro to the beautiful, thriving metropolis of Dar es Salaam, it’s a country full of exciting culture.


Our neighbor to the north is most synonymous with frigid winters and exceptionally polite citizens, but as one of the world’s largest countries it’s also teeming with numerous cities and towns to explore. On top of that, the landscape it practically out of this world.


China is expensive to visit which makes it difficult to explore much outside of Beijing. However, this expansive country is home to some of the world’s most interesting and ancient cultures, making it worth the money and time it would take to stop in for seconds.

Review: Norton Simon Museum

Pasadena, California, is home to plenty of places to experience great art, but none so impressive as Norton Simon Museum. Nestled in an enclave of greenery along the city's famed Colorado Boulevard, this museum offers a peaceful retreat from the bustle of the city outside for connoisseurs to experience the work of some of the world's most famous artists.
