Description

If you love travel with your heart and soul, then it’s very likely that the road taken by most, is not the one you want to be on! When posed with the question of where to go next, passionate voyagers don’t seek answers from a brochure or magazine. Their spirit is drawn to places where few tread. Choosing a country from an atlas with eyes closed, is more their style! Nothing of value was ever found by playing it safe. We hope that once in a while wanderlust will nudge you from the routine, to the offbeat.

Here’s a list of seven offbeat countries that will ignite your interest.

1. CUBA

CubaSouth of the United States of America, lies the Caribbean jewel, Cuba. This is not a country for the faint hearted! Cuba may seem worn around the edges, but sparks of resilience and brilliance are unmistakable. Stories of fractured relations between American Presidents and the Castro brothers, are now folklore. A trade embargo of over fifty years, has taken an economic toll, and rendered the country somewhat inaccessible to tourists. But things are slowly changing.

All good reasons to visit:
Music and dance for Cubans, are as essential as breathing! A pulsating fusion of African and Spanish rhythms, will compel you to break into a salsa or rumba. A swig of rum (flows as freely as water), will help shed any inhibitions! And wherever you go, your olfactory senses will be swamped with the heady aroma of the legendary Cuban cigar.

The country is a visual treat for the eyes as well. From Trinidad’s infamous beaches, to the colonial and neo-gothic buildings of Havana; from Santiago’s trendy cultural scene, to the historic city of Santa Clara, be prepared to be blown away. Classic vintage cars throng Cuba’s streets. You can’t possibly leave without riding in one. Picture yourself in an old Chevy, lounging in the back seat, a cigar smouldering between the lips. That’s what we call, living the good life!

2. FIJI ISLANDS

FijiBula! That’s how you would be welcomed to this island country nestled in the South Pacific Ocean. The location is remote, but if far from the madding crowd is your desire, Fiji is just the place. It’s an archipelago of 332 islands, most of which are accessible by an inter-island ferry service. The country is primitive and luxurious in equal measure. A large migrant Indian population served on the island under the British, consequently most Fijians speak a smattering of what is called, Hindustani!

All good reasons to visit:
Fiji is a beach lover’s paradise. Yasawa Islands will delight scuba diving enthusiasts, for its coral reefs are renowned the world over. Windsurfing and kayaking are also extremely popular. If you have craving for the unusual, head to Sawa-i-Lau, an island made entirely of limestone. On the island is a cave formation with a labyrinth of chambers inside. The walls are covered with carvings and drawings made by early dwellers. Swim in a natural pool within the cave, that is naturally lit with sunlight from above.

When in Fiji, feast on fresh catch from the seas, and luscious tropical fruit grown on its fertile land. A holiday here is sure to nourish the mind, body and soul!

3. MOROCCO

MoroccoMountains, desert and sea; a heady cocktail for any traveller. Well, Morocco is just that. Situated in North Africa, this country is a pot-pourri of Arab and Berber culture. While Tangier has a European feel, Marrakech is a blend of traditional and contemporary, and Casablanca is a fashionable cosmopolitan seaside city. Remember the iconic movie named after this city, starring Ingrid Bergman and Humphery Bogart?

All good reasons to visit:
From the Sahara Desert to the High Atlas mountains, there’s a lot of ground to be covered in Morocco. Souks, mosques and hammams (public baths) compete for attention. Monochromatic colours are not part of Morocco’s architectural vocabulary! Buildings, monuments, bazaars, are ablaze with shades of the brightest reds, oranges and blues.

When you sit down for a meal, begin with harira, a lentil soup. Follow it up with a tagine, a spicy stew of meat and vegetables, served with a side dish of couscous or steamed semolina. A country that satiates all senses. Don’t miss it!

4. ICELAND

IcelandIceland is a smorgasbord of natural wonders. Hot spring geysers, active volcanoes, glaciers, fjords and oceans, Mother Nature’s bounty is clearly overflowing here! Iceland is the least populated country in Europe. It’s also one of the coldest, but the warmth of the Icelandic people compensates for freezing temperatures.

All good reasons to visit:
Visitors may find it bewildering to choose from the wide range of activities on offer. There’s whale watching, glacier climbing, hikes through mountains that are teeming with flora and wildlife. Hot springs in this region are known for their therapeutic value. A soak in one of these mineral laden pools is a must.

The Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis, is one o
