Magnificent Melbourne

If you’re looking for a city that combines the old-school Victorian style and modern, contemporary design, Melbourne will definitely be your cup of tea. This unusual combination is to be found in the heart of the city, at Federation Square, which brings together amazing galleries, restaurants, bars, and world-class events. Apart from the cultural diversity, you must know that sport plays a huge role in this city which hosts the Melbourne Cup (horse racing), the Australian Open, the Melbourne Cricket Ground, and many more. This is a city where you can get whatever you want from the best men’s massage (at Elite Male Massage TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2019) to a fabulous dinner and mind-blowing cocktails, so explore it first-hand and you won’t regret it!

Stunning Sydney

Sydney prides itself on iconic sights, waterfront attractions, outstanding food scene, and over-the-top shopping, which is exactly what makes it a perfect destination for a city break. Apart from its admiring architecture and unique buildings, there are also gorgeous stretches of golden sands such as Bondi and Palm Beach – some of the most famous places in this stunning city. It also has one of the most authentic natural harbors in the world, which is a true must-see when in Sydney. This city is also surrounded by national parks for all the nature lovers out there, including the Blue Mountains which are adventurers’ absolute favorites. You must know that private airport transfers in Sydney are available as well, so bear them in mind and have an Australian trip of your dreams!

Beautiful Brisbane

Located between the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast, where the skies are blue and the beaches are sandy white, Brisbane is undoubtedly one of the most perfect Aussie locations when it comes to beach relaxation. Apart from its breathtaking skyline, numerous museums and theatres, and the iconic Wheel of Brisbane, there are also many high-end restaurants and bars that offer fresh and delicious foods and lure tourists from all over the globe. Planetarium and Botanical Gardens are a must-see, and it gets even better when you realize that the Great Barrier Reef is just a two-hour flight away from Brisbane!

Heavenly Hobart

Hobart, the capital of Tasmania, is unquestionably one of the most beautiful and underrated Australian cities in the equally overlooked island of Tasmania. Of course, expecting a Tasmanian devil to run by and greet the tourists is completely unreasonable (even though these really exist), so make sure to bear that in mind in order to avoid disappointment. Instead, focus on the wonderful Mount Wellington that dominates the city’s coastal landscape and check out Wineglass Bay in Freycinet National Park, which is arguably one of the world’s best beaches. One thing is certain – Hobart will live up to your expectations, without a shadow of a doubt!

Astonishing Adelaide

Last but not least, Adelaide is definitely more like a huge country town than a busy metropolis. It’s actually the fifth largest city and the wine capital of Australia, with the beautiful Adelaide Hills as its most famous wine region. Besides that, this city also hosts numerous festivals including Adelaide Food and Wine Festival, which is one of the best festivals in this astonishing city. Beautiful beaches can be found in Adelaide as well, so be sure to check out Henley and Grange Beach if you’re up for romantic sunsets. On the other hand, if you want to explore a fine collection of Australian and Aboriginal art, you must visit the North Terrace Cultural Precinct. You won’t make a mistake with it!

Australia truly has a large number of amazing cities every man should visit at least once in his lifetime, and these five have found their place on our list for a good reason. Just take them into consideration once you decide to visit the Land Down Under and you’ll see what we were talking about!

Men’s Guide to Planning a Perfect Summer Vacation

Planning a winter getaway from Melbourne?

A perfect vacation is vital for every hard-working man. You want to spend those free days doing exactly what your heart desires. However, there are a few things you should solve before the flight. Therefore, here is a guide with all the crucial steps you should not forget or avoid if you want to fully enjoy your trip.

Choose the destination

Whether you are travelling solo or with your family or friends, it is essential to pick the destination carefully. Especially if you have some company, you should talk to the others, and choose the place you all love and where you will have a great time together. First, define how you want to spend most of the time (sunbathing, sightseeing, etc.), and then pick the destination that fits those wishes and needs.

Plan where to go and define the budget

Keep one thing in mind – you don’t have to plan 24 hours of each day and stick to it. On the contrary, you are going on vacation to enjoy, and a strict plan doesn’t fit that idea. However, deciding which places are crucial to visit is essential. Not only because you don’t want to find yourself lacking time, but also because you also have to define the budget and save enough money for each of these locations. Therefore, choose the places and areas you want to visit, and then, together with your companions, define the optimal amount of money for each of these visits.

Book the flight and find accommodation

Even though this seems like an obvious step in the planning process, it is important to think about both of these factors in time. Especially when it comes to accommodation. You’ll be left with only a few choices if you don’t reserve your hotel or hostel room on time. Regarding the flight, you don’t want to spend too much money on it. The only way to avoid that is to think about this step a few months earlier and buy cheap tickets for suitable flights.

Check your passport and travel insurance

Checking the expiration date in your passport might even be the first step in the planning process. Furthermore, many countries have a law that says that your passport has to be valid for six months beyond your date of stay. Also, do not forget to check if you need a specific visa for your destination. All these steps are annoying, but it is essential to think about each of them in time. Another crucial point is to minimize the risks of traveling. Do not go anywhere without travel insurance! It is just not worth the risk because you never know what could go wrong. That is the fact, unfortunately. You can always get sick or injured, your luggage and passport could be stolen, or you might have to cancel your trip unexpectedly. Again, do not underestimate this step!

You don’t need a lot of clothes

Last, but not the least relevant, packing is usually the most frustrating thing for men. You know that you won’t need much stuff, but still, it is not that easy to decide what the necessities are. Depending on your destination and the length of your trip, pack only the stuff which is irreplaceable and essential. No more than that. Also, don’t forget the gadgets – your laptop, power bank, adapters, chargers, etc.

Remember, pleasure is the primary goal of a vacation. To enjoy each day of your trip, you should think about all these steps in time. That way, you won’t have to worry about anything, and you’ll be able to rest your brain and free it from unnecessary stress.
