Localruckus.com has taken us on a journey like we would have never imagined, from the outback of Australia to the depths of Indiana, we have been to some places we would have never had imagined.
Our first traveling experience was in Morocco, utterly by mistake we began Hillardsbeer and dedicated our time to see the world.
Morocco is a magnificent is a rich blend of Arab, Berber, European and African influences which all fuse together in the smells, sights, tastes, and people in this captivating country.
From its ancient and modern architectures to markets which will take your breath away, you can spend hours on end wandering the streets and finding delicious bakeries to indulge. This is certainly a bucket list country we urge everyone to visit.
Next up, we headed to Italy and spent some time traveling around Rome, Sicily, and Naples. If you love food and wine as much as we do then a trip to Italy is the perfect traveling escape for you.
We went to Italy on a trip around Europe, and it did not disappoint. Be prepared to part with a little more money than your regular travel excursions as Italy is pricey but it is worth it! Enjoy the glorious weather, delicious food, and gracious locals.
Another one of our very favorite travel destinations in Cambodia, a rustic corner of the earth that is a must when seeing the rest of Asia.
You’ll have never stumbled across so many glorious temples, waterfalls and jungles as you do in Cambodia. We accidentally stumbled upon this beautiful country when on a trip to Thailand, we made a split decision to explore somewhere else for a couple of days, a couple of days turned into ten days, and we just fell in love with the people, country and culture.
On this trip we also made our way to Vietnam; this was upon the recommendation of our friends who had spent a summer volunteering here in 2016. Although rich in diversity, the striking divisions between rich and poor is a little hard to swallow and something we certainly struggled to come to terms with. Make sure you explore every inch of this amazing country, drinking the local ales, eating traditional street food and taking long walks through the vast jungle, just be sure to take a guide with you.
Our latest excursion in our mission to try a native beer in every country was Iceland; usually, you may say but a trip none the less.
Iceland is a country we encourage every one of our readers to visit. It’s utterly breath-taking during daylight hours and the night. We were lucky enough to enjoy the spectacle of the Northern Lights; the multi-colored phenomenon is a sight to behold as well as the hot springs, blue lagoon, and Golden circle, you’ll need a decent little chunk of time to see everything Iceland has to offer. Not everyone experiences the Northern Lights but if you do, you’re in for a real treat.
Our journey so far has been remarkable and we hope you continue to enjoy following us on this incredible journey.
