The Luxury of the Caribbean

Silky white sand beaches, rich tropical drinks and luxurious restaurants, the Caribbean has it all. Why not treat yourself to a bit of extravagance with a Caribbean cruise to help you see everything these tropical destinations have to offer. Whether you are relaxing on the beaches of Tortola or sampling the delicacies unique to the region, this destination is perfect for welcoming you back into the world. If you are looking to spend a few extra days in the sun, consider booking into one of the many all-inclusive resorts favored by the rich and famous alike. These retreats offer you the best of the Caribbean all at your fingertips. Just don’t forget your sunscreen.

Ancient History in Kyoto

When thinking of Japan, the modernity of Tokyo often takes the spotlight. However, further south lies the old capital of Kyoto. This city hosts traditional markets and restaurants that date back hundreds of years. No matter the season, Kyoto offers you the opportunity to experience the dichotomy of ancient in modern in a single afternoon. Book your stay at one of the many traditional Ryokans, where you can enjoy sleeping on a tatami bed and wake to a traditional Japanese breakfast. No trip to Kyoto is complete without a visit to the ancient temples, including the famous torii gates at Inari-jinja and the views from Kiyomizu-dera. Kyoto is the perfect city for a vacation you’ll never forget.

The Colorful Nights of Lapland

Seeing the Northern lights is a bucket list item for many. One of the best spots in the world to see them is from the snow-covered forests of Lapland. Whether from the comfort of a reindeer-drawn sled or the slopes of a local ski resort, this region provides ample opportunity for aurora viewing. If chasing the lights isn’t your speed, you can book an aurora suite, where the lights come to you in the comfort of your room. When making plans, you don’t have to rely on luck. In winter, the area regularly sees auroras almost every other night. During the day, check out some of the ice and snow structures for a truly unique experience.

Wine Tasting in Bordeaux

When La Cité Du Vin opened in Bordeaux, wine lovers from around the globe found a new mecca to enjoy a glass of this world-famous wine. However, the region is home to more than just this grown-up amusement park. Those seeking to taste from the local vineyards can book wine tastings at some of the region’s top wineries. If you are a beginner to the complexities of wine or a seasoned veteran, you can find a vineyard, chateau or estate to refine your palate and sample some of the best wines in the world. Before you go, consider making a reservation on a wine cruise to help you soak up the beauty of Bordeaux as you taste your way across the region.

The Romance of Morocco

Fans of early Hollywood films have long flocked to the city of Casablanca to relive the magic, but the beautiful country of Morocco is home to so much more for romance and adventure seekers. Start your journey in Marrakech to explore the traditional souks for local souvenirs such as pottery and taste samples of the rich cuisine found here. As you make your way around the country, take the time to relax in a hammock. Throughout the land, you can see remains of ancient societies and cultures. Whatever thrill you seek, you will find it here in Morocco. Before you return home, grab a drink at Rick’s Cafe in Casablanca to experience the romance of the Hollywood classic.

Adventures awaiting you, it’s time to get out the door.
