I actually plan to go to Mexico City in March 2022 (!), pending of course not only receiving my vaccinations but also making sure CDMX's hospitals are relatively back to pre-COVID occupancy by then.
Here is the itinerary I made so far: https://wanderlog.com/plan/lxqmerjkbrabbkgs/trip-to-mexico-city/shared
It includes restaurants that I've seen to be recommended many times. But note the prices of food at these establishments look to be on par to some restaurants and prices in central California. So feel free to pick and choose which ones you really want to go to in order to save money. You'll definitely save more money eating at stalls.
The three food related items I read to be most important to experience in cdmx is tacos al pastor, chilaquiles, el morro's churros, pasteleria ideal's bakery items, and puqueria.
Things to do: markets, teotihuacan, chapultepec forest and castle and museum, city center, markets and luche libre.
Disclaimer: I haven't visited yet, so feel free to take this all with a grain of salt or pick and choose what ever stand out to you.
There is a website whose name I can't recall where you can post up your route, but then it can be edited by others. This was great when someone was planning a ride across the US and left it open for "locals" to edit the route to follow interesting roads, etc. I did a search but while I didn't find it, I did find wanderlog.com. Maybe this will work for what you want to do in Europe?
I enjoy using Furkot and Kurviger for my own planning.
Here is an article showing some of ther most romantic places among with some pics. I've been to most of these and promise you can't go wrong with any on this list.
KC Romantic Restaurants
It was epic! I recommend it. I particularly enjoyed the mountain roads in Belgrade and Croatia.
Here is the path I took and my notes along the way:
That's awesome. I'm sorry I can't help you but I'm also planning something similar. I'm thinking of landing in Bangkok, doing my fifth day test there and then driving down to Phuket.
This looks like a useful article that I came across. Link
this was my itinerary in november
2 weeks in total.
iquitos, cusco, pisco, huacachina, nazca e lima
Check out Wanderlog - https://wanderlog.com/
It lets you plot points on a map AND recommends other cool stuff nearby. I'm waiting to travel again but when I do I'll go with the pro version bc it lets you export your plans onto Google maps. Oh, and they even include the hours/days open so if you say that you want to go to the Louvre on a Monday and they're closed Wanderlog will point this out. I was psyched when I found it ☺️
Hey there. If you want to see a basic sample itinerary for a 6-day summertime trip that shows you a good order to plan things in, driving times, a few different examples of stops each day check out https://wanderlog.com/plan/fjwkujkjbdonuiad/lis-6-day-summer-itinerary-
This is an itinerary from Oli from goaskalocal.com/oli. It's just the basic stops for each day, but includes: Golden Circle, a couple days out in nature in the highlands (crazy geologic formations, hiking, off-roading, ATVs, hot springs, picnics, lots of swimming - different options for every taste), a few days on the south coast, and a day up to Jokulsarlon (Zodiac boat ride to the glaciers, kayaking, glacier hike, etc.), Diamond beach, Puffins, etc. :)
You can see some activity suggestions, recommendations for where to base yourself, accommodation options and get a general idea for a good route. Oli also does Zoom trip planning consultations if you want some one-on-one help.
Ill probably do something like this. https://wanderlog.com/drive/between/58358/58417/yosemite-national-park-to-grand-canyon-national-park-drive
Now that im older, im more into nature and camping outside for variety of travels.
If it would be my first trip to the US, i would spend all 4 weeks in california + las vegas + grand canyon probably.
Get one of the stored value cards (SUICA is the regional one, but PASMO and others all interoperate), load it up with a few thousand yen, and that should let you get around all the subways, buses, and local trains.
One of my friends wrote about it in a set of recommendations - apparently there's an English app too now! Take a look https://wanderlog.com/view/byplqatuyc/dem-flyers-tokyo-recommendations
We're using https://wanderlog.com to write down our places and see them on a map. It has an app too so it works offline!
We used to just use Google Docs/Google Sheets for this, but the mapping feature of Wanderlog just makes it easier. It also has some decent guides (like Tripadvisor) to get started with too.
There definitely are still things to do, but I want to echo the other folks in the thread by saying that it's probably nicer to stay on the west coast. That being said, Toronto isn't really known for its outdoors' activities even during the best of time, and there's pretty amazing ethnic food (though you're not exactly short of those in the west coast of Canada either.)
I've written up some recommendations for Toronto on Wanderlog at https://wanderlog.com/view/falajjoeny/toronto-recommendations, but overall, the highlights in February would probably be:
That being said, I'd probably recommend heading to Mexico City: it's 20 degrees celsius, warm, and has grrreat food (and is about as long a flight from the west coast!)
I did this exact loop in a whirlwind tour 2 years ago. Driving was easy and there wasn't much traffic! I recommend the South Rim if you only have 2 days. Take a look at the itinerary!
Las Vegas to Grand Canyon and Zion in 3.5 days
Heard of Red Rock, but never Valley of Fire. Will have to check it out next time. Otherwise I'm only into the Bellagio fountains in Vegas :P
I put all these places in a doc too for my own reference -
