Clean. Vibrant. Easy to navigate and plenty of good museums, art, and food/drink. The Chilean capital of Santiago is easily worth a week of your time. But if you can only handle three days, then this is your guide to seeing some of this beautiful city.
The Chilean coastal towns of Valparaiso and Viña del Mar have the best street art in the world, spectacular views and hills that remind me of San Francisco. Want to see what that looks like?
Theme parks? Yes.
TV and movie characters? Yes.
Rockets and heroes and adventures to the moon? Heck yes.
Seven days in the capital of Norway afforded me many firsts: eating whale, tasting reindeer, and seeing Edvard Munch’s masterpieces in person, to name a few. Come read about one of my favorite trips.
One day in Helsinki is a few too short. You’re gonna need a few days to properly soak up the sea baths or a day trip to Tallinn. But if a day’s all you’ve got, this is what you can try.
