There’s no better way to explore Alaska than along the world-famous Alaska Railroad. The tracks will cover ground from Anchorage to Fairbanks along the Alaska Mountain Range, where you’ll sightsee some of the most magnificent landscape and wildlife North America has to offer.

 

The Go Alaska Tours trip begins in Anchorage, where you’ll spend your first day leisurely strolling around town. The area is home to Earthquake Park and the Coastal Trail in case you enjoy a nice hike. If you come in February or March, the city plays host to famous events like the Fur Rendezvous and the Iditarod Sled Dog Race.

 

On day two, prepare for a relaxing ride along the Alaska Railroad on your way to Fairbanks. Stopovers include Denali National Park along with views of Mt. McKinley.

 

Once you’ve arrived, you’re set to spend two days basking in heaven at Chena Hot Springs Resort. Your time here will include trips to see the Northern Lights, an exploration of the artifacts on display at the University of Alaska and a visit to a Mongolian yurt.

 

The Chena Hot Springs Resort is surrounded by 440 acres of the breathtaking wilderness Alaska is known for and there are no shortage of outdoor pursuits to explore. Hike, ski or snowmobile around and explore before hopping the train back on your final day.

Under $100: El Poble-Sec, Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona’s insane popularity and large influx of visitors as of late may have some travelers steering away from the Mediterranean coastal city, but just outside the overpopulated center of the city, known as Ciutat Vella, are quieter neighborhoods that offer more of a local feel and don’t come with exorbitant tourist prices. El Poble-Sec is one such area that rests between the towering Montjuic park and the Old Town, making it a nice escape but still close enough to access the sights.

But taking selfies can be dangerous, and even deadly without the right safety protocols in place. According to a selfies study from researchers associated with the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, more than 250 people died while taking selfies over six years. And that number only accounts for people who lost their lives to the selfie craze and doesn't account for injuries.
