Looking to escape the winter cold? We've seen some gorgeous beaches in our travels, but if you are looking for the best beach in the world, I think it has to be a private moto in Bora Bora, Tahiti.

When it comes to mountains, nothing is more majestic and magical than the Himalayas, so i'd have to recommend a hike to the top of the Tiger's Nest in Paro, Bhutan, the diamond in the mystical jewel that is Bhutan, the last Shangra-La.

There is not a more exotic city on the planet, than the medina in Fez, Morocco. Our favorite city in this most magical country. It is like time travel back to the middle ages and like no other place on earth. Stay in a beautiful, luxury riad like Dar Seffarine.

I love that your list comes directly from your experiences as that gives me more faith in them!

I'm still deciding where we will go this year, but you gave me some great ideas!

Love your blog!

This is probably highly biased, but if you have never been to Cape Town, South Africa - I can assure you that this one destination can secure the top spot in many of your categories including best beach, best mountain, seaside charm, european indulgence, AND best natural wonder. The island of Mauritius rivals Bora Bora easily, is much cheaper per dollar spent and an absolute gem of a place in terms of friendliness and experience. Cape Town's Table Mountain was recently named one of the new wonders of the world, and it sits in the middle of the city, seemingly completely out of place and a surreal sight. A cableway takes you to the top of the mountain where you're free to explore the entire thing free of a guide. Because settlers came from Europe to the area from ages past, there's a huge European influence, bringing luxury and that Euro feel to a great many places there. Best seaside has to be Hout Bay, where you can eat at places that have fresh catches from that morning for a fraction of the price you could spend elsewhere. There's seals that sit on the dockside completely unafraid of people, and a serene feeling of being on a secluded beach among the fishing village. (Just thought it bore mentioning, it's one of Africa's best kept secrets still I think)

Thanks so much Pat! So many wonderful places to visit, but I thought these...all wonderful are not on typical vacation lists and should be!

Jeanne @soultravelers3

Thanks Luke! I'd love to go to Cape town and have heard wonderful things about South Africa so it is on our list. Alas I have also heard much about the violence there and know MANY South Africans who love their country but left because of the violence as they did not feel safe there. Sadly High violent crime and murder rates have earned South Africa a reputation as a dangerous destination, so I think that is what keeps people away. We will go at some point!

Rebekah Voss

What an awesome list. All of these are definitely on my travel bucket list. I especially want to travel to Jordan. Great Stuff, Jeanne!
