    5 Places You Should Visit in 2018

    Jakiya

    Not sure what to add to your 2018 travel planning list? Let me help you out a little. After experiencing 20 countries, 45 cities and 3 continents in 2017 I think it is time to name a few of my favorite spots of the year, and hopefully it will get you inspired for your next year of wanderlust and discovery.  

     Secret Beach, Almadies, Dakar, Senegal

    1. Dakar, Senegal

    Naturally this will be the top of my list. I spent 6 months here and could not have been happier. It basically feels like home. The food, the culture, the people there is nothing not to like. Imagine spending every evening watching beautiful sunsets, eating fresh food and dancing the night away to afro beats. Not to mention there are direct flights from NYC, and DC almost daily. Senegal is just one of those places you have to feel it to understand. There is a sweet energy in the air that truly cannot be explained. If you haven’t been to the motherland make it a must in 2018.

    Try: Surfing at SeneSurf Surf Village  

     

    2. Porto, Portugal

     Porto, Portugal 

    Porto, Portugal 


    Cheap (quality) wine, water front views and trendy bars. Porto is Lisbon’s cooler sister and while it still isn’t on a lot of people’s radar get there quick. It is small and charming but with plenty to see and do. I felt like a local after staying for only a few days. Airbnb’s are super cute and cheap and did I say 2-euro wine??

    Stay: My now friend Ana’s Airbnb

     

    3. Tarifa, Spain

     Playa de los Lances, Tarifa, Spain 

    Playa de los Lances, Tarifa, Spain 

    Wind surfing paradise, Tarifa is one of the most chill and laid back places I’ve ever been. At the very southern tip of Spain in the Andalusia region, this small town provides some of the most amazing views as it sits on the ocean where the Atlantic and Mediterranean meet. You can see Morocco from the beach or take a 30 min ferry ride to experience Tangier, Morocco yourself. This place just oozes with cool vibes and chill people and all the water activities you can imagine.

    Café: Café Azul

    Hostel: La Cocotera Boutique Hostel & Coworking

     

    4. Tel Aviv, Israel

     Allenby Street, Tel Aviv, Israel

    Allenby Street, Tel Aviv, Israel

    Israel is always a controversial topic. You know one of my many mottos: forget what you heard, see for yourself. There is much concern about safety in Israel, but I felt completely fine. After getting lost in the markets, with the best dainty jewelry, beach bummin’ and turning up with the night life, I totally forgot I was in the Middle East (not that I wanted to, but I say this to say there is nothing to worry about). It is easily accessible from Europe so tack it on to your euro trip as as destination that will give you the perfect balance of culture and fun.  

    Market: Carmel Market

     

    5. Athens, Greece

     Monastiraki Flea Market, Athens, Greece

    Monastiraki Flea Market, Athens, Greece

    Athens is always overshadowed by the glory of its surreal surrounding islands. However, when taking a trip to Greece, don’t overlook this ancient city. The food is unbelievable and the cost of living is significantly cheaper than the islands, considering their economy is still on the rocks. Outside of the ruins there are other things to do and see, start by checking out Mosotnraki square and interact with the locals, next explore the nightlife and dine in the romantic outdoor restaurants.

    Bar: A for Athens rooftop bar
