Also known as the Tiger’s Nest, Paro Taktsang is a Buddhist monastery sitting high above Paro Valley in Bhutan.  This temple is very important to Bhutan culture.  On a cloudy day, the cliffside monastery appears to be floating in the sky.

A UNESCO world heritage site, Petra is an archaeological wonder that most people haven’t heard of.  This ancient city, located in Jordan, is carved out of the very rocks that form the surrounding landscape.

Easter Island, Chile

Easter Island, or Rapa Nui as it’s locally called, is an island located over 2,000 miles off the coast of Chile.  The main draw here, are these massive head statues called “moai”, which were built by the early Rapa Nui people.  By the time this island was discovered by Europeans, the Rapa Nui were almost extinct, making it one of the most remote inhabited lands in the world.

Whitehaven Beach, Australia

Whitehaven Beach is located on the Whitsunday Island off the coast of Australia.  This beach is something you could only dream about– pristine white sands made from 98% pure silica that doesn’t get hot from the sun.  That means a day full of long walks on the beach.
