Vancouver is always listed as one of the best cities to live in the world and this city has it all. Thanks to its strategic location it boasts the warmest climate in Canada.

BOSTON, UNITED STATES
In 2017 I recommend visiting Boston, one of fascinating cities in the United States. The historical burden of the capital of Massachusetts is present at every step the traveler takes: from Common Park, the nation’s first public park, to its subway, the first built in America, through two of the world’s most prestigious universities, Harvard and Cambridge. Whale watching in one of the world’s most important wild marine areas or aquarium, with an impressive central tank, does not leave anyone indifferent and will delight the little ones of the house. Gastronomic lovers will enjoy the freshest products from the Atlantic, from lobsters to oysters, with 12 local varieties of the latter.
If you are a nature lover you will also be from Norway and, therefore, you should visit this destination in 2017. The country of the fjords offers landscapes of extreme beauty and impossible roads that will leave you with your mouth open. Get some mountain boots, get a good sleeping bag and find out through their paths. Preikestolen, Trolltunga, Besseggen, Rimstigen … The choices are endless. A good, nice and inexpensive way to get to know a country that does not have to be as expensive as it seems.
In 2017 I recommend traveling Japan because it is a destination that can be lived in infinite ways. To feel its millenary culture walking the streets of Gion, in Kyoto, or keeping silent before the beauty of an ancient temple, dazzle before the modernity of Tokyo, the rebirth of Hiroshima or the nature of Hida. In addition, of course, to savor its gastronomy and discover that it is much more than sushi and tempura.

My advice for 2017 is to discover Reunion Island. After visiting it recently I have realized that “the jewel of the Mascarene” is one of those few sites that are still to be discovered. An island with exceptional landscapes ideal for hiking or a good route by car, a multiculturality that exemplifies the world of coexistence of races and religions. And, in short, a claim to the wildest nature in which, if you’re lucky (I had it) you can contemplate erupting the great Piton de la Fournaise volcano or bathing with whales and dolphins. And, for more information, the gastronomy of the island, Creole cuisine, will leave you with curry and vanilla flavors in many of their dishes. Can you ask for more?
My best destination for 2017 is the Canadian West Coast as the perfect place for nature lovers. Explore Vancouver Island and reach the village of Tofino, where you can spot whales and seals from a zodiac. Rent a car and travel the route to Calgary. It is a delight to drive between the rocky mountains and find yourself among turquoise lakes and glaciers high in the mountains. And keep your eyes open, because when you enter the Jasper and Banff National Parks at any time you may encounter a bear. At that moment you will be speechless, but it will be one of the most incredible experiences of your life.

Of course, we warn you that this part of France creates addiction.
