Croatia

Croatia is a hot destination and Wild Women Expeditions takes you there with its Kaleidoscopic Croatian Multisport itinerary. The 13-day trip is not for those looking to explore at a leisurely pace, though. The itinerary promises up to six hours of hiking or four hours of paddling and cycling each, almost every day.

 

Guests start out in Zagreb, before checking out a nature park on the Croatian-Serbian border. Dine alongside locals and hear about Yugoslavian rule prior to the early 1990s. Explore the wild side of Croatia with visits to national and nature parks, all while admiring the country’s history and culture.

 

The itinerary starts at just more than $4,500 per person and departures take place in May, September and October.

 

France

Austin Adventures also has an active itinerary for women looking to get away. The company’s seven-day cycling and hiking vacation shows off the best of France’s Loire Valley. To fuel the adventure and the itinerary’s rapid pace, guests enjoy a wealth of French cuisine.

 

The itinerary starts at just more than $3,500 per person and takes place May 26–June 1.

 

Yellowstone National Park

There’s no need to leave the country to find yourself, along with your closest gal pals, though. Austin Adventures also has a Wyoming and Montana itinerary that takes intrepid travelers to the Northern Rockies, Yellowstone National Park and more. The itinerary includes river rafting among the Snake River rapids, hiking through Yellowstone, zip lining over cliffs and rivers and more. The itinerary departs July 24 and the eight-day trip costs $4,000.

 

There’s an additional Yellowstone-only itinerary that’s six days and starts at just less than $3,000, with a September departure.

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.

Culinary Artistry

Dining is an art, and now that applies to both on the ground and at 35,000 feet thanks to Hainan Airlines’ “Hai Chef” Inflight Artistic Chinese cuisine series, a collaboration with Dong Zhenxiang, a Chinese culinary master also known as Dadong.

Capturing a shot of ourselves in the most impressive, gorgeous places on earth can feel like an uncontrollable compulsion. 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.
