Travel Type:
Alone

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year Sightseeing & culture Sports, adventure or outdoor activities

Customer Travel Tip: make sure you have your wits about you as it can be fairly easy to get lost. Also, don't expect to be able to make it from one side to the other by car. It is much easier to walk around, although you might bump shoulders many times.

Liked: The energy of this small town was very attractive.

Disliked: the constant activity made it difficult to get a rest. also the lack of signage on the streets made it rather difficult to get around.
