If you’re an American who thought you’d never be able to get to Cuba, it’s time to rethink your thinking.
There are few things in the world more powerful than the connections us humans make with one another. But connecting with travel is a whole different thing entirely.
Our first photo competition of 2015 was all about wildlife. Anything with fur, feathers, scales or skin was fair game (you know, in a non-hunting way). Maybe the credit should go to all the attractive animals out there in the world, but this month saw some of the most spectacular shots we’ve ever received.
Antarctica has long been stereotyped as a bucket-list destination for retirees on what is fondly described as a ‘SKIing’ holiday (spending the kids’ inheritance). But a generation of travellers is emerging and exploring more of the world than their parents and grandparents put together, which means that the frontiers that stretch out before young travellers today are broader and more far-reaching than ever.
Happy New Year! It’s mid-January, and those awesome, make-yourself-better, this-year’s-gonna-rock resolutions could well be losing steam. But why should a resolution be hard to keep? How about instead, we set you up with just one New Year’s resolution: to challenge yourself in a city you’ve never been to.
New Year’s resolutions are like making plans to catch up with an old acquaintance. You bump into them on NYE, smile with too many teeth and say, ‘Oh my god, we should totally do coffee soon. How have we let it get this long? We’ll text. Ciao!’ Then weeks go by and that resolution just sits there gathering dust, rather like those dumbbells you bought two Januaries ago. But Intrepid is here to help. We reckon most resolutions just need a little spice, a twist of lemon or a dollop of chimichurri – and we’ve got just the continent for the job: South America.
When we sat down to create our Intrepid Food Adventures, we had a simple mission in mind: to design the most authentic, affordable and awesome ‘real food’ experiences – the kind you see in beautiful magazine spreads or envy-inspiring food documentaries.
If you’re anything like us, you leave your New Year’s Eve plans ‘til the last minute and subject yourself to a frenzy of pre-celebratory anxiety.
Why wait until the summer for your next holiday? There are countless good reasons to escape in spring – to beat the crowds, enjoy a milder climate and see some gorgeous spring scenes. The trouble is, there’s so much world to choose from, it can be impossible to know where to start. So we thought we’d lend a hand by picking some of our favourite itineraries to undertake in spring. Here’s the top five.
