Under $100 / North America

Grab brunch at Tupelo Honey Café, for Southern charm and breakfast less than $15. There are a few locations scattered across the South, but most serve up the same great options. Go with the shoo mercy omelet, filled with smoked ham, bacon, fried green tomatoes, pickled jalapeno and pimento cheese, for a few of the South’s best flavors in one dish.

Myrtle Beach is much like any family beach town on the East Coast, so you’ll be sure to run into a lot of the same boardwalk attractions you’d see elsewhere. If you find yourself looking for something to do after you’re finished soaking up some sun on the beach, and would prefer something more specific to the area, you’ll want to get away from the shore for a bit.


Pay a visit to Hopsewee Plantation, one of the colonies’ most important rice plantations during the mid-1700s. Take a tour of the grounds ($20), from the stately plantation home to the slave quarters. Be sure to stop by the gourmet tearoom before you leave.

Golden Circle Tour of Iceland

The small island nation of Iceland may have only one major “highway,” the 828-mile Route 1, better known as Ring Road because it navigates the entire perimeter of the country, but it can be difficult to traverse depending on weather conditions at particular times of the year. While a road trip around the island is a fantastic adventure that reveals unimaginably unique landscapes, it can be a considerable challenge for those self-identifying as anywhere from timid to even moderately adventurous in their travels. In these cases, a full-day Golden Circle tour is the perfect antidote to any FOMO experienced by foregoing the road trip.
