1. Chefchaouen, Morocco
The all blue town first caught our attention when we were planning our 4-month route around Europe. In close proximity to Spain and Gibraltar, this town is only two hours away from Tangier, Morroco and five to Marrakesh. Experience real Morocco and fill your camera with blue everything.
2. Gasadalur, Faroe Islands
Talk about desktop photo potential. A hop, skip and a jump from Scotland, Iceland and Scandinavia, the Faroe Islands are an absurdly pristine natural paradise. AND, they have puffins.
3. Lencois Maranhenses National Park, Brazil
Each year the area receives nearly 47 inches rain, allowing the water to pool in between the sand dunes. Some can be as deep as 10 feet. These pools only exists for a few months out of the year before they nearly dry up.
4. Torres Del Paine National Park, Chile (Patagonia)
Patagonia is one of the most remote places in the world to visit, located at the southern-most tip of South America. It offers unfathomably beautiful scenery in every direction.
5. Dune 45, Namibia
Google the dune and you will find thousands of travelers with signature dune climbing photographs. One day, we’ll have one too.
6. Burano, Italy
Need I say more? This insanely colorful town is a photographer’s dream destination. Nearby Venice, is an excellent stop too.
7. Devil’s pool, Zambia
Soak in the Zambezi River pool, steps away from the edge of a waterfall.
8. Easter Island, Chile
887, 13ft, magical, mystical, volcanic, moai statues decorate this Chilean island, set 2,300 miles off the coast of Chile, accessed via a 5-hour flight from Santiago. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime destination.
The ultimate beach getaway. Pristine beaches, turquoise water, relatively affordable accommodations, coconuts. An added bonus: unmatched hospitality of the local people.
10. New Zealand
It’s simple. The food, wine, sheer beauty of the landscape, opposite seasons of the Northern Hemisphere, the accents.
11. Denali National Park
Why visit? The jaw-dropping, snow-capped scenery, killer wildlife (literally), and Northern Lights.
