Top 4 Autumn Travel Destinations for 2013
Travelling and seeing new places has always been something I’ve loved doing. The freedom, the joys, the friends we make and the sights of truly spectacular places. Whew! Nothing really beats that. Each town, city, state and country has its unique charms and something that makes it stand out. Some destinations like the Canary Islands in Spain are perfect for summer. Other places like Japan are perfect for winter and autumn. Truth is each destination is perfect and unique in its own way. For those who are looking for travel destinations that are awesome this autumn, maybe this article can help you.
The Serengeti in Tanzania
The most beautiful thing about visiting here in the autumn is the migration of millions of wildebeests, eland, zebra and gazelle from here to Kenya’s Maasai Mara National Park. This experience stays with you forever. Watching these animals try to survive, feed, avoid and dissuade predators like crocodiles, lions and hyenas is truly amazing. And the migration you see on TV has nothing on this. You need to see it up close to understand how intense it is.
The Northern lights are truly one of nature’s most spectacular events. And where else can you see it if not in the Norway’s northern skies. True, the midnight sun is a beauty to behold. But nothing quite beats the breathtaking beauty of the northern lights. And what’s more, it is predicted that the lights are going to be extremely bright and more intense this year. So, pack your bags, book a cruise to Norway and go enjoy the sight of a lifetime; a sight that many people can only dream of and will probably never see.
Hervey Bay in Australia
It is not difficult to see why many people consider Australia one of the most beautiful on earth. If you’re looking for a truly spectacular place to visit this autumn, how about visiting Hervey bay? You know what’s truly amazing about this popular destination? Whale spotting. Surrounded by Fraser island –which by the way, is the world’s largest sand island- Hervey Bay is a popular stopping point for humpback whales returning from the Antarctic. And the best time to spot these whales during the autumn would be between august and November. Think of it as a “mecca” of sorts for these whales. Seeing these whales jump out the waters is an unforgettable experience.
The ABC Islands
Traveling during the hurricane season can be depressing if the storms turn your way. You could end up spending days holed up in your room, watching TV or doing something other than chilling at the beach. Luckily, the Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao Islands will most likely be free of any hurricanes, typhoons or cyclones this autumn. So, head over to the beautiful warm turquoise waters of the ABC islands and the sunny white sand beaches for a summer like experience here. Want something more specific? For your honeymoon, go to Aruba. For scuba diving, go to Bonaire and for lots of sunshine, head over to Curacao. If you want to take it up a notch, visit the three.
