Travel With A Capital M – Three Worldwide Cities Worth Seeing

Sometimes,​ ​planning​ ​to​ ​​travel​​ ​isn’t​ ​as​ ​easy​ ​as​ ​it​ ​sounds.​ ​Given​ ​you​ ​want​ ​to​ ​see​ ​and​ ​do​ ​as much​ ​as​ ​possible,​ ​how​ ​can​ ​you​ ​possibly​ ​narrow​ ​down​ ​an​ ​entire​ ​world?

The​ ​best​ ​solution​ ​to​ ​this​ ​tends​ ​to​ ​be​ ​to​ ​pick​ ​a​ ​theme.​ ​You​ ​could​ ​choose​ ​to​ ​focus​ ​on​ ​finding sites​ ​of​ ​historical​ ​significance;​ ​religious​ ​temples;​ ​or​ ​countries​ ​with​ ​interesting​ ​indigenous music.​ ​This​ ​can​ ​be​ ​rather​ ​restrictive​ ​though,​ ​ensuring​ ​that​ ​one​ ​holiday​ ​is​ ​fairly​ ​similar​ ​to​ ​the rest.

So​ ​why​ ​not​ ​try​ ​something​ ​largely​ ​irrelevant,​ ​but​ ​that​ ​nevertheless​ ​helps​ ​you​ ​to​ ​establish​ ​a theme​ ​-​ ​the​ ​alphabet?​ ​You’ve​ ​got​ ​26​ ​letters​ ​to​ ​try,​ ​and​ ​the​ ​cities​ ​found​ ​in​ ​each​ ​letter​ ​will​ ​offer something​ ​diverse​ ​from​ ​the​ ​others.​ ​Below,​ ​we’ve​ ​explored​ ​the​ ​idea​ ​of​ ​travelling​ ​to​ ​cities​ ​that begin​ ​with​ ​the​ ​letter​ ​​M​,​ ​as​ ​it’s​ ​about​ ​the​ ​most​ ​suitable​ ​letter​ ​to​ ​demonstrate​ ​just​ ​how interesting​ ​a​ ​theme​ ​this​ ​can​ ​be…

Madrid

The​ ​Spanish​ ​capital​ ​is​ ​a​ ​tourist​ ​hotspot​ ​and​ ​for​ ​good​ ​reason.​ ​The​ ​weather​ ​is​ ​good,​ ​the shopping​ ​is​ ​even​ ​better.​ ​It​ ​won’t​ ​cost​ ​you​ ​a​ ​fortune​ ​to​ ​get​ ​there​ ​nor​ ​to​ ​navigate;​ ​public transport​ ​is​ ​affordable,​ ​and​ ​a​ ​​taxi​ ​in​ ​Madrid​​ ​isn’t​ ​going​ ​to​ ​break​ ​the​ ​bank​ ​either.​ ​All​ ​in​ ​all,​ ​it’s a​ ​city​ ​worth​ ​experiencing​ ​at​ ​least​ ​once.

The​ ​city​ ​is​ ​rich​ ​in​ ​history,​ ​as​ ​well​ ​as​ ​being​ ​home​ ​to​ ​some​ ​of​ ​the​ ​finest​ ​art​ ​in​ ​the​ ​world.​ ​It’s perfect​ ​if​ ​you​ ​like​ ​cultured​ ​city​ ​breaks,​ ​or​ ​want​ ​to​ ​spend​ ​longer​ ​in​ ​a​ ​location,​ ​exploring​ ​all​ ​that it​ ​has​ ​to​ ​offer.

Moscow

From​ ​the​ ​warmth​ ​of​ ​Spain​ ​to​ ​the​ ​chill​ ​of​ ​Russia​ ​now;​ ​the​ ​Russian​ ​capital​ ​is​ ​a​ ​must-see​ ​for any​ ​tourist​ ​who​ ​wants​ ​to​ ​see​ ​something​ ​different.​ ​The​ ​city​ ​is​ ​inexpensive​ ​to​ ​visit​ ​-​ ​flights aside​ ​-​ ​and​ ​features​ ​some​ ​fascinating​ ​historical​ ​insights.​ ​You​ ​can​ ​explore​ ​the​ ​lost​ ​world​ ​of the​ ​Tsars,​ ​the​ ​​fall​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Soviet​ ​Union​,​ ​and​ ​the​ ​modern-day​ ​Kremlin​ ​of​ ​Vladimir​ ​Putin.

The​ ​architecture​ ​in​ ​Moscow​ ​is​ ​delightful​ ​to​ ​western​ ​eyes,​ ​unaccustomed​ ​to​ ​seeing​ ​such​ ​color and​ ​vibrancy.​ ​The​ ​jewel​ ​in​ ​the​ ​crown​ ​is​ ​Saint​ ​Basil’s​ ​Cathedral;​ ​one​ ​of​ ​the​ ​most​ ​recognizable buildings​ ​in​ ​the​ ​world.

Muscat

Finally,​ ​cross​ ​the​ ​hemispheres​ ​and​ ​head​ ​to​ ​Oman​ ​for​ ​a​ ​visit​ ​to​ ​port​ ​capital​ ​of​ ​Muscat.​ ​Muscat is​ ​one​ ​of​ ​the​ ​oldest​ ​cities​ ​in​ ​the​ ​world,​ ​with​ ​a​ ​storied​ ​history​ ​dating​ ​back​ ​to​ a​​ntiquity​.​ ​At​ ​times, the​ ​city​ ​has​ ​been​ ​in​ ​possession​ ​of​ ​many​ ​different​ ​conquering​ ​forces,​ ​giving​ ​it​ ​a​ ​blend​ ​of cultures​ ​that​ ​any​ ​seasoned​ ​traveller​ ​will​ ​love.

As​ ​one​ ​would​ ​expect​ ​for​ ​this​ ​part​ ​of​ ​the​ ​world,​ ​the​ ​weather​ ​is​ ​hot​ ​-​ ​so​ ​it​ ​might​ ​be​ ​best​ ​to​ ​go during​ ​the​ ​cooler​ ​months​ ​of​ ​March​ ​and​ ​April.​ ​The​ ​city​ ​is​ ​relatively​ ​affordable,​ ​though​ ​the high-end​ ​shopping​ ​available​ ​could​ ​be​ ​a​ ​test​ ​for​ ​your​ ​credit​ ​card!

As​ ​the​ ​above​ ​three​ ​examples​ ​show,​ ​picking​ ​a​ ​single​ ​letter​ ​and​ ​focusing​ ​on​ ​cities​ ​-​ ​especially capital​ ​cities​ ​-​ ​that​ ​start​ ​with​ ​that​ ​letter​ ​can​ ​give​ ​you​ ​a​ ​diverse​ ​and​ ​interesting​ ​travel​ ​focus.​ ​No matter​ ​which​ ​letter​ ​you​ ​choose,​ ​you’re​ ​guaranteed​ ​to​ ​find​ ​a​ ​delightful​ ​mix​ ​of​ ​the​ ​world, ensuring​ ​you​ ​the​ ​most​ ​complete​ ​travel​ ​experience​ ​imaginable.
