Ahh, Porto. Refreshingly smaller than Lisbon, it is still touristy but on a different scale. This city is lovely to gaze at with picturesque riversides, charming districts where hip locals outnumber visitors, and pretty good shopping.

Vibrant, romantic, overwhelming, beautiful. Not particularly peaceful, but incredibly stimulating.K-Swiss Hof IV VNZ White Navy Red After a few days of trekking Lisbon’s hills, navigating through the throngs of tourists, and eating and drinking your way through the city, you will be ready to rent a car and drive an hour to Comporta. Nine West Womens Spruce Fabric Ballet FlatNike Men's Rosherun Hyp Prm Qs Running shoesBasically Lisbon’s answer to The Hamptons (but like 30 years ago). Long stretches of empty beaches, sand dunes, long grasses. Mainly residential and quiet, quiet, quiet.

While Kyoto may be the cultural capital of Japan, it also has a serious hipster scene. The sights are overwhelming, both in numbers,Crocs Womens Women's Sanrah Circle Dress SandalSeaVees Womens Baja Slip on Standard Sneaker and in tourists.

Check out my insider’s Guide to Kyoto!
The Eternal City is just that. It has endured thousands of years, and still today is abuzz with always-tan Romans zipping around on scooters and beautiful people enjoying la Dolce Vita. Pick a few of the must-see sights in the center but then retreat into more local neighborhoods like Trastevere, Pigneto,Miz Mooz Womens Maria Ballet FlatPleaser Womens ADORE-709FS BBFS M SandalsMonti, and Testaccio. And avoid eating at restaurants near the touristy sights, they will always be overpriced and underwhelming. Find your inner Audrey and rent a motorino Roman Holiday style - as cliche as it sounds, this is the best way to view the city.

At the far end of the African continent, Capetown is not the place easiest to reach. Often coupled with a stop in Johannesburg and Kruger Park (safari) this city is actually a destination in and of itself, so plan accordingly. It’s buzzing with trendy restaurants, sophisticated hotels both grande dame and boutique, and the surrounding nature is astonishing. The nearby wine country warrants exploration whether you're a wino or not, with gorgeous scenery and first-class resorts and lodges. If you’re into adventures, aside from hiking the cliffs near the southernmost edge of the world, you can cage dive with great white sharks near Seal Island or Gansbaai.

This Mexican city is a beautiful escape. Its well-preserved colonial town has earned the status of Unesco World Heritage Site. Baroque and Neo-Classical buildings in fifty shades of marigold and terracotta stand strong against the pops of color found in blue skies, fuchsia bouganvilla vines, green cacti, and geometric azulejo tiles.
