If you’re following Code & Quill on Instagram (If not, follow us!), you’re aware the team has been on vacation for the last week.
We've shared photos sent to us by friends and colleagues, showing us their favorite spots from around the world. Not only were those spots easy on the eyes—if you haven’t drooled over the snapshot from the coast of Montenegro, you’re missing out—but they also gave us a bite from the wanderlust bug.
As we crawled the web, pondering destinations for our next vacation, we realized many of you are searching for your next place to explore, too. So today, we’re sharing six resources to inspire your next adventure.
Something we didn’t quite understand as we searched: why so many sites seem to restrict certain destinations to certain age groups. We read those parts with a grain of salt. Since when is adventure limited to age? It isn't to us—and never will be.
So whether you’re broke or prospering, whether you're in your twenties or your fifties, whether you have a short week or a long month to waste away, use these resources to start planning your next escape.
The team at Elite Daily rounded up 50 travel destinations to fit all personalities. There are tourism-heavy cities you’ll recognize, plus some places seldom mentioned in travel brochures.
What they have in common is that you’ll take away a heck of an experience, no matter which spot you choose to visit.
There’s no reason you have to break the bank to see the world. (Unless, you know, that’s your thing.)
Buzzfeed has courteously collected 13 countries where your dollar will stretch furthest—and without sacrificing any of the culture, cuisine, or beauty.
Want to experience top-notch adventure, but without massive crowds and painful prices? Use this post from Narcity to guide your travel plans.
They break down the best places to visit and their best times for tourism and cost-savings. The common theme traveling to these locations is that it’ll cost you something to get there—but once you’re there, it’s cheap to have fun and relax.
Where was this post every other time we planned a vacation? Travel & Leisure hit the nail on the head by spelling out the best times to travel throughout the year.
What’s even better is that they give a couple ideal options for every month of the year, so you’re not restricted in your options!
Here’s another post geared towards twenty-somethings—but with almost 39k shares across the social web, you know the Daily Dose of Design must be onto something.
With suggestions running the gamut from New Orleans, Louisiana to Istanbul, Turkey, you’re bound to find a place that piques your interest.
Few things beat the experience of traveling with your partner or your friends. The memories you make, plus the stories of obstacles that inevitably popped up along the way—lost passport, language barriers, bungled accommodations, and so on—are guaranteed to stick with you for years to come.
But for some, traveling solo may be the way to go. Traveling alone builds character; it forces you to problem-solve quickly on your own, to decide how your time will best be spent to get the most out of your trip.
For those of you wanting a solo adventure, this is the post for you. HolidayIQ has rounded up these eight destinations that are budget-friendly and experience-rich. Check them out and start planning your next solo leisure.
Where in the world will you go next? Use these resources to figure it out—and drop us a line when you’re ready to take off.
