Munich is where you will find one of the best inventions in the world – the beer hall. Located all over the Bavarian capital, they are where both locals and tourists alike congregate to down ‘masses’ of the best beer in the world. As their trademark long tables sit anything up to 20 people, you never know who you could find yourself sitting beside, but you can be sure you will end up talking to whoever it is.


The best place in the world to go dancing…

Buenos Aires, Argentina

If you travel to Buenos Aires, birthplace to tango dancing (one of the most vibrant and sexiest dances in the world) you will hear tango music on the radio, on the streets and in the Argentinean capital’s top clubs. If you feel the desire to take up the dance you can take tango lessons in various locations around the city, and some places even give them for free!


The best place in the world to go hill walking…

Co. Wicklow, Ireland

County Wicklow on the east coast of Ireland provides the visitor with 1,250 square kilometres of ground to cover on foot. 320 of these are over 1,000m altitude. The best known walk is the ‘Wicklow Way’ which runs for over 130 kilometres through the Wicklow Mountains. If you are looking for something a little less lengthy visit Glendalough (Gleann dá Locha in Irish meaning ‘The Valley of the Two Lakes’) which boasts some of the country’s most beautiful forest trails.


The best place in the world to go sightseeing…

Rome, Italy

If you want to visit a city where around every corner is another landmark or monument which causes your jaw to drop even further, Rome is where to go. Within a few hours you can stroll down the Spanish Steps, throw a coin over your shoulder into the Trevi Fountain and marvel at the Pantheon before setting your eyes on the Colosseum for the first time. Then you can get the Metro across the River Tiber to visit the Vatican Museum and St Peter’s Basilica.


The best place in the world to do extreme sports…

Queenstown, New Zealand

It’s hard to think of anywhere in the world where there are as many extreme sports to partake in as in Queenstown on New Zealand’s South Island. Bungee jumping, skydiving, mountain climbing, kayaking, jet-boating, snowboarding – these are just a handful of the activities to be done here. And when you don’t get involved in the sports you can sit back and enjoy gazing at the ‘Remarkables’, the nearby mountain range.


The best place in the world to go to a festival…

Edinburgh, Scotland

Edinburgh is the festival capital city of Europe thanks to the numerous festivals which take place there throughout the year. The first one of the year is the International Science Festival in April, and this is followed by the International Children’s Festival in May. But the month to catch a festival is August when no fewer than six take place. The International Jazz and Blues Festival kicks off the proceedings, and this is followed by the Military Tattoo, the International Film Festival and the Fringe Festival among others.


The best place in the world to go to a show…

London, England

Along with Broadway in New York, London’s West End is the other best place in the world to catch a top show. Whether it is musicals or plays which take your fancy, you can catch either in the English capital. The best thing about going to a show is that it won’t cost you an arm and a leg for a ticket. Just visit the half-price ticket booths around Leicester Square and you can get discounted tickets on the same day of the performance.


The best place in the world to lose sleep….

New York, USA

New York is thee ultimate city. No matter what day of the week you want to let your hair down, you can find somewhere to do it in the Big Apple. Whether it is in a hopping club in the Meatpacking District, in a swish bar in Greenwich Village or in a less-swanky one in the East Village, you can always find somewhere to ensure a late rise the next day.


The best place in the world to do nothing…

Koh Tao, Thailand

When you want to relax in a hammock, chill out on the beach or sip a cocktail while watching the sun go down, Koh Tao in Thailand is one of the best places in the world to do so. While this island is known for its diving, it also has a reputation for a place to unwind when you need a break from the nightlife on its neighbouring islands Ko Samui and Koh Pha Ngan. The sunsets from Sairee Beach on the west coast of the island won’t be forgotten in a hurry.

    Interesting. I’ve also been exploring Aussie happenings, particularly in the world of kangaroo boxing, as well as koalas, Barry Crocker, and Matthew McConaughey over at the Rodeo.
