Tokyo is the perfect place to enter into Japanese culture. The city is style, commerce and culture all fused together. It might have been true in the past that it can be tricky to get around, but venturing out, we realized so much is in English that the train and subway are almost as easy as the Paris Metro or the London Tube (for less money)! The best bet is to get a Japan Rail Pass. The train circles around the middle of the city in both directions, making it hard to get lost. Even the taxis are an attraction. Picture a suit and tie, hat, white driving gloves and doily covered seats. They are that impeccable.
Set on the explosive brink of World War II, Australia is the tale of one woman's journey to a faraway continent. Starring Nicole Kidman as a buttoned up English aristocrat who comes to save the land she has inherited, and Hugh Jackman as the rough-hewn local who helps her, they embark on a trip together across hundreds of miles of the world's most beautiful, yet unforgiving terrain, only to face the bombing of the city of Darwin. In this lush telling, the landscape becomes its own character, inspiring viewers to reconnect with their spirit of romance and love of adventure in a way that only Australia can.
And there may be no more enjoyable way to experience these astonishing sites than on a Nile cruise. I took one such cruise in October: a seven-day voyage from Luxor to Aswan. The approximately 120-mile stretch between these two Nile cities is home to an amazing amount of pharaonic riches, from the legendary Valley of the Kings, where Tutankhamun's tomb was discovered in 1922, to the temples of Luxor, Kom Ombo and Philae, to name just a few.
While no longer physically split into two halves, the two cultural Berlins provide an exciting venue for those who enjoy urban life, culture, music, and a buzzing, cosmopolitan environment. Rarely have I visited a city with so much to offer - and at such a good value. Not only is Berlin one of the most inexpensive European capitals but also one of the most vibrant ones.
