North of downtown Miami, Wynwood Walls is selfie paradise and it's free. What feels like hundreds of urban murals pop out in corners, on building and even the street poles are not left untouched by the creative fury that consumed the neighbourhood. Street art and graffiti have their place in the world, right here. And what better way to engage with the artistic message than to put yourself and your kinesthetic interpretation into the mix of this open air, ever-changing museum.
Looking at the size of South Africa, ten days would seem insufficient to explore its vast treasures. Fear not, you can still optimize your July vacation in this stunning country. Visit the Apartheid Museum that chronicles the healing process of the South African people from a psychological-devastating racial rift to their triumph over legalized discrimination. Stop over in Soweto which two iconic figures, Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu, once called home. Hang out with the chimpanzees saved by the Jane Goodall Institute or take a stroll near Boulder Beach, where the penguins strut their suits on the rocks. There are natural wonders like king-sized diamonds and many exciting options for the culture-loving traveler. Shall we begin? Here are ten must-see places and tours.
Vizcaya is a stunning 18th century American mansion that is home to exquisite art collections from around the world. Flanked by breathtaking, Italian-inspired gardens, this Spanish-named estate stands erect on the lips of the Biscayne Bay, seemingly unfazed by time because the love of many restored its chips and cracks. There is something truly mythical about this place that is frozen in time. It is aged, splendid and giving. Visiting the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens is no doubt one of the best things you can do in Miami.
