Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful of the Greek islands, Naxos offers a lot more greenery and mountains than can be found elsewhere. There is a little bit of something for everyone here with quaint mountain villages filled with olive trees and lovely local people who are happy to give you a small sample of their village life. In order to make the most of your time on Naxos, the following sites and activities should be at the top of your itinerary.
So, you’re leaving for a trip soon, eh? Well, there are some things you definitely will want to remember, and to take care of prior to boarding the plane or hopping on your ship. But don’t worry, as I have loads of articles to help you plan your trip, and to get ready ahead of time here – however, I won’t leave you stranded here, I’ve gone ahead and outlined some of the most important pre-trip issues that you will want to give some attention to.
Preparing to go on vacation takes a lot of organizing and all too often things are forgotten at the last minute. Starting early on making a list means it’s easier to be sure everything is included, and items can then be checked off against it as packing is done.
To learn a language or not to learn a language? It’s one of the questions most debated by travelers, particularly those preparing for a long-term trip, before they set off on the experience of a lifetime.
First off, I’d like to state that I LOVE ROAD TRIPS! Road tripping a destination, especially an international place is one of the most exciting, intimate, and interesting things you can do, I think. You can come and go as you please, and you can go with the flow, staying in a place because you met some really great locals, or you can move along if something doesn’t quite feel right. I particularly love road tripping around whole countries, because of several reasons, really – it gives me the freedom to stop wherever I want, whenever I want, as I mentioned already, but as a photographer, that’s an invaluable freedom that I like to take advantage of as much as possible – the other reasons are that I really love to get lost, and if I’m always hopping from bus to taxi to train, I will almost always miss a neat village, or a beautiful landscape feature.
As of late, I have begun researching and planning out my itinerary for my upcoming USA Road Trip. The trip will start during the first week of March, where I will start from my hometown of Columbus, Ohio – from there I will head south through Bourbon country to Nashville to visit a few friends again, before I travel east through the Old Smokey Mountains to the Atlantic coast. Afterwards, south I go, through Georgia and Florida, all of the way down to the Florida Keys, before heading north where I’ll follow along the Gulf of Mexico. It will likely take me a few weeks to comfortably make my way to the Mississippi Gulf Coast, but spring should be in full swing by the end of March, and the weather should be nothing short of pure splendor. Then, as I continue west through Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California, summer will be beginning to kick off its festivities.
