7. Queenstown, New Zealand

Looking for thrills? Try Nevis bungee jumping or luging in this mountain town.

6. Brighton, England

Get away from the hustle and bustle of London and head south to the seaside town of Brighton. Relax at the beach, play games on the pier, or cruise the shops.

5. Vang Vieng, Laos

This party town used to be known for the bar-lined Nam Song river, filled with slides and swings and drunk backpackers. After many injuries and a few deaths, the government shut down the bars that lined this river. Now you can kayak the Nam Song river, go underground river tubing, climb caves, and enjoy the beauty of the Laos countryside.

4. Versailles, France

Home of Marie Antoinette? Say no more.

3.  Logrono, Spain

Quiet town by day, party central by night. During the day, visit wineries in neighbouring Haro and at night, just go out and enjoy the street festivities. Wine costs only a euro and you can walk from bar to bar, following impromptu bands and friendly locals, all while joining in with the singing.

2. Railey, Thailand

Clean beaches, chill hang outs, and Bob Marley playing in the background.

  1. Ah, think I still have some time to sneak a trip in. Portland maybe?

  2. I left Portland, Oregon to join the Peace Corps in Nicaragua. Not only do I highly recommend Portland and the surrounding beauty of the Oregon outdoors, I can’t wait to make it to Ometepe Island at some point during this year. Great list!

  3. Heading to Thailand this summer! 🙂 I can’t wait!
