7 Best Places To Travel In 2014

whats up

Tired of your travel agent recommending the same places every year? Looking for something a bit different this time around? Here are some of the best and most beautiful locations for the global jet-setter in 2014.

1: Hokkaido

Located on the northernmost tip of Japan, Hokkaido is known for its beautiful snows and luxurious hot springs. The province is also cheaper than Tokyo but more interesting than Osaka, making it a nice alternative to more conventional destinations in the Land of the Rising Sun.

2: Nicaragua

Settle into a beach bungalow in Nicaragua for a tropical vacation better than any of your daydreams. Go swimming and surfing in its clear, sky-blue waters; catch up on your reading in its gently-swaying hammocks; enjoy cheap lobster and cocktails in its restaurants on the beach.

3: South Africa

2014 is a great year to visit South Africa. Between the affordable markets of Cape Town and the historical monuments of Johannesburg, it’s a great way to pay tribute to Nelson Mandela while also enjoying all the fun of a trip abroad.

4: Uruguay

Another great beach destination, Uruguay is low-key and relaxing, perfect for the office worker ready to get away from the daily grind. You’ll have your pick of everything from mud masks in local spas to horseback riding along the coast!

5: Bolivia

From the bustling streets of Sucre to the desolate salt flats of Uyuni, Bolivia is full of sights and sounds that you simply can’t get anywhere else but South America. If you’re looking for a unique, unusual vacation, contact an agency like Adventure World and start planning your trip right away.

4: Iceland

Bundle up and head to Iceland for a trip you’ll never forget. Not only can you see the Northern Lights from Reykjavik, a stunning experience in its own right, but between the friendliness of the people and the extent of the country’s restaurants, theaters and art galleries, you might just enter Iceland and never want to leave!

7: Russia

Though it recently gained widespread attention for hosting the Olympic Games, Russia has long been a favorite of travelers who enjoy good food, grand architecture and plenty of vodka. Book a flight and raise a toast to great savings and an unforgettable holiday!

If you’re ready to go off the beaten path this year, here are just seven locations worth the trip. Travel is often about timing just as much as attractions, but rest assured that these spots are perfect for 2014.

Vacation Out Of State

Well, so summer is officially here again and for those who live in the Western part of the world when summer starts in June, I bet you have have been planning to take a family get-away.  Kids are excited about summer, too.  Vacation and outdoor activities are in tow.  Everybody is figuring out where to go on a summer vacation.  Or maybe, some of you already had gone.

As for me and my family, we are planning to go to Arkansas.  My husband had been thinking of going and taking me there when I got here in the US six years ago but didn’t got the chance to do so because of work-related relocation.  From then on, we had been very busy with the immigration stuff and work.  Also I started working so we changed plans.

Now that we have moved back to the house that my husband bought before I got here and had a baby, traveling became second priority.  But we do not take it for granted because we also need some time to relax and unwind. We have been to a long vacation in the Philippines twice and presently going to weekend trips once in a while.  What we haven’t done yet is an out-of-State vacation.  Hopefully sometime this year we will be able to go to Arkansas and do some diamond digging at the Crater Of Diamonds State Park.  🙂
