Places to be in MayLike0

It’s not so easy to always feel the urge to travel. Passion. It lies in all of us. Recently, I realized that so many of us keep planning for the future and sometimes, things don’t even work out. Planning is not bad, but what is wrong with today? What is wrong with saying that THIS IS my investment on my life. No matter how near or far, cheap or expensive. Today is where your will to live and not just survive happens. Not in the future. Places to be in May is not only for May but for summer too and don’t only stop here. You have Japan, Iceland, Asia etc but these below are few ideas that just popped in my mind.

I’ll always remember Ernest Hemingway when I think of taking advantage of my life today. Don’t you ever get the feeling that all your life is going by and you’re not taking advantage of it? Do you realize you’ve lived nearly half the time you have to live already.

Jamaica

The birthplace of reggae, the national motto is “Out of Many, One People” and if you keep your eyes open, you will see it in the faces of each and every person you meet. I urge you to read up on the country’s history before visiting- you will have a greater appreciation of the local diversity once there. The Caribbean is my favorite place to be. Jamaica is a whole new world. It’s for everyone. Families, Adventure and nature lovers, music lovers, fantastic BBQs and road trips! Don’t miss out before hurricane season!

How to Get there Fly directly to Montego Bay International airport through Miami, London Gatwick or Mexico and drive through to Ocho Rios.

Stay at GeeJam or The Jamaica Inn

Seychelles

There are so many reasons to fall in love with this place and the breathtaking beaches are definitely one of them. Known as the backdrop for honeymooners, Seychelles is for everyone and not just those going for a romantic break. Other than secluded beaches, the culture of the Seychelles is a unique mix of African, European, and even Asian influences. Local art, music, and architecture are different from what you will find anywhere else in the world. It’s a place for families, singles, honeymooners, adventurer lovers and a place to get away for some peace and quiet.

Amsterdam

It’s one of the most beautiful cities in the world in my opinion. The four seasons, the dams, the tulips, the history, the architecture and one of the most friendliest people. It’s true that the wind in Amsterdam at times feels like Dorothy Gale will land right at your front door, but you wont find a city more beautiful as Amsterdam in the spring time with their open markets, fantastic shopping and music at every corner!

Stay at Sofitel The Grand or The Dylan Amsterdam
