Hot air ballooning in Cappadocia, Turkey

One of the most Instagrammable locations on earth? 1.5 million hashtags don’t lie. The rock and cave formations in Cappadocia are unlike anywhere else on earth, and there’s no better way to experience the landscape than from floating up above it at sunrise. Pure magic.

Stay in a chateau in Champagne, France

Is there anything that screams #livingyourbestlive more than surrounded by bottles of champagne in Champagne? Grab your besties and convince them to split the cost of staying in a chateau for a night or two. You can frock up like Marie Antoinette and toast the night away with good food and wine. Santé!

Rent a Riad in Marrakech

The mystery of Marrakech entices the most discerning of travellers. Wander spice markets, be pampered in a traditional hammam spa, explore the cactus gardens of Yves Saint Laurent and fill your insta-feed with photos of the iconic Yves Klein Blue painted buildings. Then relax back at your private riad, sipping mint tea.

Junk Boat Cruise Halong Bay, Vietnam

When most people dream of Vietnam—they see the charming lantern lit streets of Hanoi, the bustling streets of Ho Chi Minh city, the endless bowls of fragrant pho noodle soup—and, of course, sailing on a wooden junk boat through turquoise waters along the limestone formations of Halong Bay.

Sail The Greek Islands

We’d be remiss not to include a trip to the Greek Islands. Endless blue waters, whitewashed buildings. It’s a different way of life, and one we’d happily become accustomed to.

Take a Long-Tailed Boat ride around the Phi Phi Islands

There’s nothing more ‘dream Thailand’ than sailing around Phi Phi’s stunning limestone formations and tropical islands. Stopping off for dips in turquoise waters and sunbaking on white sand beaches.

Row a boat around Plitvice Lakes, Croatia

Plitvice Lakes National Park is over 300 square kilometres with endless waterfalls connecting sixteen stunning lakes. You can hike around the park and take boat tours, but the most charming way to see even just a small section is by renting a rowboat—ah, the serenity! Just don’t fall in.

See New York City at night from the top of the Empire State Building

There’s countless amazing vistas from rooftop bars and skyscraper buildings in New York City, but arguably none more iconic than from the top of the Empire State. We think night time is the most spectacular time to experience this iconic New York moment.

Eat Hawaiian donuts in Honolulu

Never met a doughnut you didn’t like? Same. You need to try Hawaii’s Original Malasada donut from Leonard’s Bakery in Honolulu. Exclusive doughnuts in tropical paradise, need we say more?

Pose in front of the Hollywood sign in LA

Did you really go to LA if you didn't get a photo with the Hollywood sign in the background? Embrace the outdoors vibes LA does so well with a hike up to see the sign close up. A popular route is to start from the Griffith Observatory along the Mount Hollywood trail (pack water and snacks).

Order a cocktail at the Park Hyatt in Tokyo

Ever seen Lost in Translation? The 2003 film starring Scarlett Johansson and Bill Murray? (go watch it immediately if not). Filmed at the Park Hyatt in Tokyo, and most famously the New York Bar on the 52nd floor of the hotel. Expect to pay a small fortune for a cocktail, but the price tag is well worth it for the view and pretending you’re in a Sofia Coppola film. Live your best life tip: arrive before 8pm (and before 7pm on Sundays) to skip paying the cover charge.

A self-confessed 'food-tourist', I take hunting for the world's greatest sandwich very seriously, my quest has taken me from Berlin to Hoboken. Stopping off only for vintage shopping, craft beers and Mediterranean sunsets.
