10 Bucket List Destinations You’ve Never Heard Of

Where will you go this year? We’ve selected ten destinations from all corners of the world- from the holy shrines of Bhaktapur and Nashik, the intoxicating blue waters of Koutouloufari, to the fortified cities of Albarracín and Aït Benhaddou- each unique place will bedazzle and fascinate you. Many of these destinations were mentioned on our press release; “Best Value Destinations for 2014” and many are also listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Athens’ Hidden Hotspots

I didn’t expect much from Athens. Most of my friends had either not spent much time in the city on their way to the islands (as most people do), or they just didn’t enjoy their time.

Or, as I like to think, they just didn’t find the right places. What I love about Athens is that it’s unashamedly Athens – it has no pretensions, and it doesn’t pretend to be anything it isn’t. What you see is what you get.

I hired a private guide from Athens Insiders because big cities scare the crap out of me and I felt like paying for someone to be my friend would be a good idea. I was right. My guides Daphne and Anthia showed me THEIR Athens and then made me comfortable enough with the city to do some exploring on my own.
