While the Atacama Desert exposes visitors to an arid climate and scorching temperatures, the Patagonia region in the far south provides a magical spectacle of glaciers. This is the particular charm of Chile, home to poet and writer Pablo Neruda, whose verses still resonate between Valparaiso and Isla Negra, his final refuge facing the Pacific. You will long remember the magnificent Torres del Paine National Park as well as the Andes Mountains, whose peaks look down on breathtaking scenery. With its unique geological features, such as the magnificent Tara Salar salt flats or the Tatio geysers, Chile is a theatrical display of nature in motion stretching over thousands of kilometres.

What is the weather like in Australia in November? In November, we prefer the cities of Adelaide, Brisbane and Sydney. At the very south of the country, Adelaide boasts a Mediterranean climate and temperatures between 13 and 24°C. To the east, Sydney's temperatures fall between 16 and 24°C while Brisbane’s subtropical climate provides temperatures between 17 and 27°C.

This is what makes Australia so beautiful. In Brisbane, you’ll revel in the crystalline waters behind the coral reef, which harbours an amazing underwater world. A scuba divers’ paradise, Byron Bay has remained a chic hippie destination where long-haired surfers still ride the waves and whales pass by during their migration period that extends to November. Farther south, the huge metropolis of Sydney proudly showcases its internationally renowned opera house, a visionary work of architecture by Jørn Utzon. 200 kilometres from Sydney, the Blue Mountains will delight hiking enthusiasts with gorges, precipices and waterfalls. Finally, much farther to the south, you’ll find Adelaide, the country's fifth-largest city, where people enjoy a relaxed “Mediterranean” lifestyle, and vestiges of colonial construction can still be found in the city centre.

While some may delight in browsing the high-fashion shop windows along the Avenue de Montaigne, others will prefer the charm of Montmartre, with its picturesque alleyways and the Place du Tertre. But Paris is also about its abundant museums, parks and French formal gardens, where children’s laughter resonates, not to mention the typical Haussmannian architecture that stands proudly along its grand boulevards.
