Belize

“Why do you want to spend one week in Belize?” my friend asked. “There’s nothing there besides beaches.”

He knew I wasn’t a beach person. I can do a day or two on the beach, but any longer than that and I will get bored and start looking for other things to do. What he didn’t know, though, was that Central America’s second smallest country had lots more to offer than just beaches.

I quickly realised that a week in Belize was nowhere near enough. I had a fantastic time, and I easily would have found enough things to do to keep myself busy for another week or two.

Germany

Frankfurt is one of those cities where travellers pass through but rarely stop. Or where people will spend a few hours and leave again.

This is a shame. After having lived there for more than two years, we can safely say that there are lots of things to do in Frankfurt. From museums to bars, historic centres and green areas – no matter what you prefer, you will find it here.

Plus, with one of Europe’s biggest airports just a short train ride away, you’ll find it very easy to get here. And once you’ve dived into the city, you’ll notice that it’s going to be hard to leave.

Here are the best things to see in Frankfurt. As always, be on the lookout for the hidden gems that we have included in our itinerary.…
