    Some people are squeamish about traveling in summertime. Unless you can afford to travel only in air conditioned cars or airplanes, being on the road in the summer heat is hardly a very pleasant experience.

    And there’s another pro to autumn travel – the foliage. Taking a trip to the countryside or to small, peaceful towns surrounded by a sea of red and gold leaves doesn’t compare to anything else in the world. So here are some of the best small towns in the world for autumn travel.

    The fact that we know out planet pretty well by now (although not entirely), can be a blessing or a curse, depending on your sense of adventure. If you have the time and the money, and you know where you want to go, you can travel anywhere on the map, which is definitely a good thing. On the downside, however, some people could argue that much of the mystery is gone, and trips are no longer journeys of exploration that can lead you to unknown places.
