Many associate Nice with all the glitz and glamour of the red carpet and the neighbouring Cannes Film Festival. But for the majority of us not on a celebrity budget, Nice will glimmer just as brightly for those looking to book a low-cost holiday.

As 2011 comes to an end, I thought it would be cool to talk about my top 5 travel experiences of the year. My year was split roughly 6 months in Australia, 3 months in Southern Asia, and 3 in the US. It's hard to pick just 5, but here are my favorite travel memories from 2011, in no particular order.

Some Kind of Red Fish, Sydney Fish Market
Some kind of a red fish

If you've got more than a few days in Sydney, Australia, check out the Sydney Fish Market in the Pyrmont area. It's the third largest fish market in the world, and they've got some cool fish on display. Pretty sure they do guided tours, but we went on our own and just walked around for free. To get on the floor you'll need a bright colored vest, long pants and shoes, but you can walk around the top floor and look down on the action without proper attire.

What To Do In Bohol, Philippines – Loboc River Cruise

Posing With Ati Tribe Spitting Fire

When traveling through the Philippines, we found ourselves in Cebu for 2 days, waiting for a flight to the island of Siargao. We didn't really know what we wanted to do, and in doing a little research discovered the island of Bohol, just a couple hours away from Cebu by ferry. The island, pronounced very similar to "Butthole", is best known for the Chocolate Hills of Bohol. When we arrived, we decided to rent scooters and explore the island that way. One of our destinations, a lazy 45 minute scooter ride away from our resort in the Mactan Island area of Bohol, was the Loboc River.

Al Fresco Surfers Paradise
Al Fresco Italian Restaurant in Surfers Paradise, QLD

You've been traveling the East Coast of Australia.  You've arrived in Surfers Paradise, the most touristy city of all.  The streets are lined with kebab joints, stale pizza slices, McDonalds, and take away Chinese.  Where do you go for food?  From the heart of town, cruise down Gold Coast Highway towards the Q1 tower.  On the left hand side you'll arrive at my favorite restaurant in Surfers Paradise, Al Fresco.
