At the start of the year, on the list of your goals or dreams, travel might just be one of your priorities. Knowing where to go, if it’s worth your dime/all the hype you see on social media can be daunting. I’m so grateful we’ve been able to travel to beautiful places for both work and pleasure and these are the places I would go back to in a heartbeat! You’ll also notice I’ve linked blogposts or travel videos we’ve done in the past (we’ve put so much work in to these to be the best resource for you). If you have any questions just comment below and I’d be happy to help with your trip planning!
Positano is a place I could probably visit yearly. Yes, I said it, I could go back here every year and never grow tired of it. From the sweetest people, to the incredible breathtaking views to the INCREDIBLE food â€” my heart felt so happy being here. Truly, I’ve never ate better in my life. We went during the end of April/beginning of May and it was perfect! Summer is extra crowded (but of course just as beautiful). I did a whole travel guide (where we stayed, how we got there etc.) and two travel vlogs you can watch here and here.
Banff & Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada
Winter or Summer, this place is truly one of the most beautiful places to visit in Canada. Winter is actually their slower season (summer gets booked up quickly) and I have a 5-Day itinerary you can check out here!
I love Maui for so many reasons â€” mainly because I feel so connected to nature and truly relaxed whenever I visit! I would save this one for an anniversary/honeymoon because it is more on the pricey side. We did an updated Maui blog from our trip last year (we’ve been twice) you can check out here for where we stayed, excursions, local food spots etc. I would recommend traveling here around May (the weather is perfect)!
Croatia is part of the Balkans (I’m Macedonian which is also) and so I felt most at home and welcomed here! It was fun to be able to understand the language, eat the same cultural food I ate growing up and swim in the beautiful adriatic sea. We went here for our anniversary trip a few years ago and I can’t wait to go back! Check out our travel blog for Croatia Part 1 and Part 2 here. I’d say the best time to go would be around July, it’s hot and even though it’s “tourist” season, it isn’t nearly as crowded as much as Italy and Greece.
Old Quebec, Canada
I would end the year off here if I were you! In December, it’s like walking into a Hallmark movie. The town is decorated beautifully, the snow is pretty much always guaranteed (hello, White Christmas) and it’s a cozy, low-key type of place you can relax in the winter. We did a little vlog from our time here back in 2017 to get some ideas of what to do, where to stay etc!
