Venice is one of the most romantic and enchanting destinations in the world and has been bewitching visitors for thousands of years.

New Zealand is a dream destination for any traveller as it has some of the most breath-taking, natural scenery in the world. Nature lovers can swim with dusky dolphins and seals, adventure junkies can go bungee jumping, canyoning and skydiving, and if you’re lucky enough you might even get to see the Aurora Australis – the so-called southern lights.

There are also dozens of boutique lodges and mini-hotels nestled in unique and beautiful locations that will make your time in New Zealand even more memorable.

8. Drive the Wild Atlantic Way in Ireland
