01. Trips of a Lifetime Checklist
New York City
NYC boasts a diversified array of countless cuisines, artistic experiences, and adventurous excursions. The city never sleeps, so you shouldn’t either.
Los Angeles, CA
Hike, take in the views, soak up the sun at the beach, and stroll through one of the many amazing art museums that the city has to offer, or shopping at the boutiques in downtown.
It’s true what they say: Paris’ famous Baroque architecture, lush gardens, overflowing museums, rich food, and inspiring music incites an emotional response in most anyone who walks the city’s central streets.
Nothing will transport you back in time quite like a trip to Rome. There’s something magical about being among the Forum and Colosseum that you can’t help but feel small in the place of such history and magnitude.
Whether you want to explore, relax, meditate, or luxuriate, there’s a national park for you. A trip to one of the US’s many national parks will help you experience some of the most authentic wonders nature has to offer, and there’s always more to explore.
Chugach National Park, Alaska
Glacier National Park, Montana
Banff National Park, Alberta
Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah
The Grand Canyon, Arizona
Mediterranean Coastal Village
From the French and Italian Rivieras down to the Amalfi Coast, around to Croatia and the Greek Islands, these rocky hillside beaches are dotted with rows of colorful umbrellas perfectly aligned, sailboats and yachts drifting into port, and on occasion–nude beach goers.
Cinque Terre, Italy
Outdoor Adventure Trip
Experiencing the natural wonders our world has to offer can be some of the most rewarding (not to mention physically brutal — but hey, cool scar stories) trips you’ll take in your life.
Jackson Hole, Wyoming
Vancouver, British Columbia
somewhere in Costa Rica
Cape Town, South Africa
the Alps, Switzerland
You don’t know the meaning of the word “relaxed” until you’re sprawled in glowing heat, with sandy legs, salty hair, and a pina colada at the ready.
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
The best part of a road trip is coming across the unexpected twists and turns that land you somewhere off the beaten path and beyond your itinerary. It’s pulling off on the side of the road to snap photos of the sunset across the lake, or veering off into a back road that leads you to a charming town you never knew existed.

Somewhere That Gets You Out of Your Comfort Zone
At the end of the day, the best reason to travel is to push your boundaries, expand your mind, and embrace unfamiliar surroundings. Whether that means the thriving metropolis of Hong Kong or the sprawling beaches of New Zealand, the only way to truly grasp the beauty of the world is to see it from someone else’s point of view. You’ll taste food you’ve never seen on a menu, step foot in buildings you never knew existed, and meet friends you wouldn’t cross paths with anywhere else. They say that travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer, and this trip will leave you the richest of them all.
Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Hong Kong, China
St. Petersburg, Russia
