  1. Brussels is nice but not a place to spend too long in, its best to have your hotel stay there and then spending some days going to nearby towns. I'd say around 3 days is a good amount of time to enjoy Brussels.

  2. Been to Brussels twice for the Tomorrowland festival and I could say it was always good times. Brussels Beer scene is the best!

  3. I disagree with Brussels. For reasons that everyone knows but won't talk about, Brussels has become one of the most dangerous cities in Europe especially for females.

  4. Great video😄😄
    I would also take in consider:😅
    Damascus Syria
    We all know why it's not visited much anymore
    But it's back and you can check many vloggers that visited recently
    Like drew bensky😄😄

    I also think eastern Europe in general is amazing and many ignores much that the country can provide
    Like all people consider visiting Budapest and very few know any other Hungarian beautiful cities and towns
    Almost the same for Germany too
    With amazing nature and a loooot of castles that most Germans well spend a life time without visiting them all😀

  5. I'm from Trieste and it's the first time ever that I see someone mentioning it on a travel related YouTube channel! And yes, I have to agree, Trieste is a little gem, definitely worth it! 😉

  6. South America has so many hidden gems … Chile/Argentina winter stations, Brazil's NorthEast and South, Punta del Leste in Uruguay, Ecuatorian islands … the list goes on and on
