Top 10 Trips of 2021

After an intense year, travel is the escape you need right now. With numerous promising vaccines now on the market, we can once again dive head first into planning trips to dreamy far-away destinations.

Have you missed the thrill of anticipation and excitement leading up to a trip? The moment you first step off a plane in a new country - full of possibility and experiences waiting to be had? The rush of new sights, smells and sounds engulfing your senses and setting your soul on fire?

We know we have. 

In honor of travel planning being back on the table, we have created our Top 10 Trips of 2021 - ten gorgeous adventures crafted for the times. You may notice more single country itineraries than in past years' selections. This is because we have adapted for the current circumstances, opting for itineraries that minimize the hassle of border crossings and additional testing requirements by staying in one country and exploring all it has to offer. These are all about a more relaxed pace of travel and diving deeper into these amazing destinations. 

 So dig those suitcases out of storage, charge your camera batteries and brush the dust off your passport because travel is BACK!
