As I plan for my honeymoon this year I have my eye on Hoi An, an atmospheric port city in Vietnam. Home to many incredible boutique hotels, you can can find a blend of old and new whether you choose to stay in town or on the incredible picturesque beaches. - Leah Abrahams, Special Events

South Island, New Zealand

Where do I begin with New Zealand? From learning about Maori culture to adrenaline pumping adventure - you can do it all here! My dream trip includes hiking a glacier and flying over the breathtaking Milford Sound. Last, but not least, riding the TranzAlpine train across the plains of Canterbury and horseback riding in Glenorchy where you can take in the stunning scenery from Lord of the Rings. - Katie Jehenson, Wellness Travel Manager

Guanacaste Province, Costa Rica

“I don’t get an opportunity to vacation often, so when I do, I look for places that have a bit of everything to really maximize my experience. Guanacaste, Costa Rica is on my personal “must-see” list thanks to its perfect balance of relaxation and adventure all wrapped up in a beautiful, biodiverse environment.” - Chrystal Hunsberger, Graphic Designer


Matera, Italy

“A day spent wandering Matera, Italy’s limestone Sassi structures? Yes please, followed up with a food forage in the caves of Murgia National Park. Over my gourmet cave meal, I’ll toast to 2019 with local rosé.” - Ruth Beach, marketing and copywriting

Northern Territory, Australia

“Visiting Ayres Rock or Uluru, a sandstone monolith in the center of the country with ancestral ties to Mother Earth, has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember. A visit in 2019 will be extra special as artist Bruce Munro has created an epic light installation that spans seven football fields.” - Linden Schaffer, Founder and CEO
