Republic of Congo
The lungs of the world are rooted in the Republic of Congo. This African country has one of the world’s most vital rain forests, second only to the Amazon in size. Misty jungles open to glassy lakes where forest elephants gather to drink. Parrots dart through the humid air and western lowland gorillas munch on foliage in hidden clearings. Real adventure-seekers can visit the local villages to learn more about life in the depths of one of Africa’s best-kept secrets. Let Donna Salerno Travel help plan your adventure!
Montenegro is a tiny treat on the Adriatic Coast. The Balkans are a natural wonderland of rugged mountains, medieval villages, and pristine beaches. Its culture mix runs deep. Towering triangle-topped minarets and domed Orthodox churches mingle in such a small space. Often overlooked for Croatia, its neighbor to the north, Montenegro is equally as charming and not nearly as busy. Go under the radar in Europe, see other Europe suggestions on our website
Terraced rice fields and turquoise bays; it’s the beauty of Bali or Thailand without the crowds. But Vietnam’s appeal extends beyond the natural. Ho Chi Minh City, formerly Saigon, is a fast-paced city with a melange of French architecture, bustling markets, and glassy skyscrapers. Dig into Banh Mi —crispy baguettes filled with crunch pickles and meat—and sip on noodles soaked in warm broth. Vietnam will feed your desire for culture and history and your belly at the same time.
