Lima is the capital of Peru and the best place to catch concerts during the summer season. The capital hosts many musicians, from locals to international acts who wish to perform. Summers in Lima are a great time to catch a live band. This area is not typically known for music, as much as other Central American countries. However, Lima is the birthplace of many talented musicians and others flock there to share their talents with the local community. For travelers passing through the area, catching a concert is a great way to interact with the local community and take part in a local event.
Tickets for most concerts in Peru can be purchased through Teleticket. There are physical ticket booths with representatives from this country inside the Wong and Metro supermarkets in Lima. The shows offered on the website range from international acts to tickets for local music festivals. It’s a good site to use to check out who’s playing in the area and when the show takes place. Buying tickets ahead of time in this fashion gives travelers time to check out the music and become familiar with the artists before seeing them. It makes the experience more immersive than attending a concert of someone you’re not familiar with.
Outside of those events there are local shows that happen weekly. One such event occurs each Thursday; locals will host jazz sessions at the Delfus bar. For travelers who enjoy this genre of music, meeting at this bar is a great way to socialize while listening to some relaxing tunes.
Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes. Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.
Bleisure — it’s a term we’re all familiar with these days. After all, millennials drive the rising trend, combining business and leisure trips regularly. Take a few days to decompress in a new destination after a hectic schedule of meetings and business.
Friends and family members of travelers are always looking for the right gift. It’s hard to find something that will surprise a traveler and also be something they use often. Many are trying to look past the typical gifts travelers get, such as notebooks and pens, and looking more toward destination-specific or more unique items. Gift giving can be difficult for some that don’t know what a traveler is looking for or needs, but these three gifts are a great starting point.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
