Portugal top country to visit in the coming year

Portugal has been elected as the top country to visit in 2013 by Globe Spots, a group which describes itself as “independent and keen travellers, who like to share with other travellers about places they like”. We are not a travel agency and we do not try to sell you guidebooks, the only thing we do is travel inspiration”.

Portugal Car Hire 2013Globe Spots is now in its fifth year, and having welcomed 2013, they have elected what destinations they “think will be hot – or at least should be”.

Portugal tops the ranking, followed by Mozambique, Kyrgyzstan, Panama, Armenia, Rwanda, Cuba, Ukraine, Malawi and Canada.
About Portugal, Globe Spots says the country “oozes old European charm. Medieval towns and historical quarters are full of squares, churches and monasteries.

 Narrow lanes are flanked by old skew houses with crooked balconies draped in drying laundry. Here, neighbours still share the latest gossip or discuss politics from their windows. Pastry shops and taverns are found in such abundance it makes you wonder whether the Portuguese eat at home at all”.

It continues to describe the way of life, saying the “pace is soothingly slow and any day seems to be a good day for a drink. Chances are that after a few days in Portugal, you’ll find yourself sitting in a small square with a glass of tawny port in your hand, no matter whether you previously liked the stuff or not. It’s just one of those things Portugal does to you.”

Globe Spots, as can be seen by the list of countries to visit in 2013 aims to expand the “travel mind” about places people might or might not have heard of, feeding readers small corners of the world that they would probably want to travel to.
