1. Fiordland National Park – New Zealand

The sheer breadth and beauty of the Fiordland National Park is indescribable. It’s postcard perfect in every way. Spend the day (or several) here wandering through the trails, observing flora and fauna, hiking, biking or kayaking. Make sure to visit the Doubtful Sound and the Milford Sound, they won’t disappoint!

2. Camden, London – England

Camden, London is a very different and often unexplored section of this iconic city. The windy roads are lined with artists and boutique cafes and stores. To truly experience London, put away your map and enjoy this eclectic area.

3. Mauritius

Mauritius is a gorgeous island off the southeast coast of Africa. It is one of the top destinations in the world because of its international community, tropical climate, pristine beaches and top of the line hotels. Feel free to wander on the beaches all day, and the capital Port Louis all night!

4. Tamarindo – Costa Rica



Tamarindo is my happy place. This little surfer town in Costa Rica is simple, welcoming and a place where you will meet people from every walk of life. Mingle with the locals at the beach, meet some college kids eating the best nachos you’ve ever had or sit by yourself and enjoy the picture perfect scenery. It’s easy to immerse yourself in the culture of pura vida lifestyle of Tamarindo.

5. South Iceland



Iceland is a gorgeous country filled with lava beds, mountains and everything in between. To get the most out of your stay, I recommend going to South Iceland which is where pretty much everything is located. However, if you truly want to get lost, check out the other areas as well and I assure you, you will see the most beautiful landscapes.
