We all know that racing anticipation as the second hand tick, tick, ticks its way to 5 pm on a Friday afternoon.
If you’ve been staring at the clock just a little too hard, a lot too long, however, trust me, it’s time to disconnect from the world. Think about it: sandy white beaches, the dazzling sun, an awaiting adventure…Yeah, way more fun.
Instead of leaving your dream vacation destination as just that—a dream—it’s time to make it a reality!
For a spark of inspiration to get you out of your desk chair and ready to take on the world, here are five dream vacation ideas. Go on an adventure, relax, recharge; just treat yourself to the trip you deserve!
1. Snorkel Sapphire Depths in Lanai, Hawaii
If your plan is to unplug and unwind, book a ticket to Hawaii’s Most Enchanting Island! According to The Hawaii Tourism Authority, the island of Lanai has 18 miles of beautiful, sequestered beaches so you can soak in the sun without interruption.
For the more adventurous, take a dive with the dolphins, snorkel, or explore the rest of the island by horseback.
2. Sing Opera In Sydney, Australia
Okay, so you won’t actually be singing soprano.
If you don’t get a chance to visit the Sydney Opera House, there are always aerial tours, The Blue Mountains, or shopping at Queen Victoria Building.
If flying down under is your idea of a dream vacation destination, our guide for an Australian adventure can help get you started.
3. Trek to the Hidden City of Machu Picchu, Peru
The lost Incan city is brimming with culture, untold wonders, thermal springs, and hiking trails. 7,970 ft above sea level, Machu Picchu is bound to offer a beautiful view at the top.
With these Peru vacation packages, you can uncover the mysteries of the Hidden City and then continue your travels throughout Peru’s stunning landscapes!
4. Feel Timeless in the Eternal City of Rome, Italy
Indulge in the best gelato Rome has to offer before embarking through this cosmopolitan city.
From soaking up history at St. Peter’s Basilica to making a wish at Trevi Fountain, Rome is home to a number of ancient masterpieces. Once you’ve soaked in that art, architecture, and history, feast on authentic Italian pasta.
5. Flamenco in Barcelona, Spain
A proper flamenco requires beauty, grace, and a lot of fancy footwork. Catch one of Barcelona’s intricate dances, sip wine while walking through the vines, or soak in 10th-century art at The Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya. Dale!
