of pure winter beauty. Reminiscent of a children's
storybook, this small town in Utah can provide anyone with
a rejuvenating, refreshing weekend gateway to allow you to
reconnect with nature. Along with its natural charm, there
is a lively town with entertaining nightlife not too far off
the beaten path.
5. One of the most memorable train rides, this train's
historical route from Moscow to Vladivostok is without a
doubt too stunning to put into words. The wide,
mesmerizing landscape of Siberia resembles an
impressionist scene that Cezanne himself simply missed.
The golden meadows are just a small taste of everything
that awaits you on this "centennial journey."
7. As a popular new destination, Iceland has quickly
become a nature lover's paradise, especially with a good

sculptures, I promise you won't tire of East Iceland's
pastel colors with the backdrop of the rhyolite

Titicaca still continues to be a magical
destination for many people who want to
explore ancient Peruvian history. Along with
wooden boathouses, it is absolutely incredible to

a canoe and sailing for sailing's sake. Take the
time to explore the way Peru once way, believe
me you won't regret it.
13. Apparently the inspiration of Kipling's jungle
book tales, this region of central India has awed

on cultural antiquity that has been gracing
India's landscape for centuries.

mountains for miles and ancient ruins to make

offering a fair amount of cultural activities that
would liven up any summer evening.

old square market that dates back to the 13th
century and old town that may even give Krakow
a run for its money. Pierogis anyone?

better than Ferreira.
