Two Countries, One Trip: How to See More on Your Next Vacation

Even if you’re not the kind of traveler who wants to check off as many destinations as possible in a week-long vacation, you might get restless staying in one place for that long. With some cities, you not only have the option of visiting another region, you can also stamp your passport by going to a whole different country for a few days.

Independent Stonehenge and Bath Afternoon Tour from London

As one of the world’s most fascinating architectural sites, Stonehenge has long been on my travel ‘to do’ list. When the opportunity finally arose this spring, I was more than a little excited. Figuring that the 90 minute trip from London warranted a full day out, I opted to include the charming town of Bath – famous for its ancient Roman Baths and Jane Austen Centre – to the itinerary.

Nairobi in One Day

At the Karen Blixen Museum

Most people find themselves in Nairobi on either end of a safari trip. The city is Kenya’s capital and main area of business in the region. Aside from the few favorite restaurants in the downtown area, the city itself doesn’t offer a lot of action for tourists. The best way we found to spend a day in Nairobi is to explore the many attractions outside of the city limits. We toured the Nairobi National park, Langata Giraffe Center, and the home of one of Kenya’s most famous past resident Karen Blixen.

When I first arrived in Whitehorse, the capital of Canada’s northern Yukon Territory, I expected to find a rough-edged old mining town that had seen better days. But today’s small city has moved well beyond the cliché of the bearded old prospector squatting over a gold pan and then spending his winnings at the local saloon.

Tybee Island: Laid-Back Beach Style in Georgia

Tybee Lighthouse

Just 20 minutes from the heavy antebellum charm of Savannah, the landscape begins to change. The horizon spreads open to reveal Georgia’s low country: a coastal waterway lined with marshes, sinking landscapes and a slow, lazy river.

Off the side of the road, you may see alligators lurking in the water, or cranes standing still in marsh grass. You’ll feel the slow pull of the tide as you drive further down Hwy. 80, away from the mainland and closer to the coast.

Tagaytay Ridge Tour in the Philippines

Jeepney Ride

For many travelers, the best part about a big, hectic, twelve-million-inhabitant Southeast Asian city like Manila is leaving it. But even for those with a taste for urban chaos, a day trip to the surrounding areas can provide a breathe of fresh air and a new dose of cultural perspective.
