POSITANO


After my first semester at college, I had the amazing opportunity of traveling through Europe.  I spent the majority of my trip in Italy where I fell in love with the people, customs, food, and culture.  I can’t wait to go back someday.  When I do, I want to visit Positano.  Driving past it was gorgeous but definitely not enough.  It’s the kind of incredible city that you want to completely soak in.

Positano, Italy is a beautiful town located on the western sea shore.  Not only is it a relaxing and lovely vacation spot in it’s own right but it is located near other great and historic cities such as Naples, Pompeii, and Capri.  It is also close enough to Rome that you can easily rent a car (here) and take a day trip there if you want to.

If you are a student like I was or if you have completed school but your student loans are making it impossible to afford the trip, Earnest offers great refinancing options. Your dream trip might not be as far away as you thought.

You can stay in Positano, Italy in this private apartment for  $150-$359 a night or $1,048-$2,512 a week.

BORA BORA


Lets be honest, who doesn’t want to experience Bora Bora?  There is something about those dreamy over water villas that draws everyone in.

Those villas are in high demand however, so they are a more expensive vacation option.  Another great option at the same resort would be to stay in one of these private land villas.  They are on the beach and they include a private pool.

WHERE TO STAY

You can find great options and prices for the  St. Regis in Bora Bora (here).

If you have your heart set on staying in an over the water villa, the all-inclusive Sandals resort in Jamaica is a great option.

You get to enjoy an amazing private villa and a private infinity pool.

All inclusive is a little more expensive but it is worth it.  All of your food and activities are included which makes you feel spoiled and helps you completely relax while you are on vacation.

I love all-inclusive vacations.  They are even better than cruises.

SPOTTED LAKE


Spotted Lake is located in western Canada near Victoria and Vancouver.  Most of the year, it resembles a common, run of the mill lake but in the summer, it dries out.  This reveilles mineral deposits and separates the lake into many separate pools which creates the allusion of a spotted lake. This makes for a fantastic weekend get-a-way because it’s such a cool phenomenon and there are so many great things to do in western Canada.

WHERE TO STAY

You can stay in Victoria, BC, Canada in this private apartment for $132 – $270 a night or $924- $1,124 a week.

GLOW WORM CAVES


These caves are sooooo cool!  These worms glow but they need a certain type of environment to survive.  New Zealand has three of these magical caves in close proximity.  Plus, if you are a “Lord of the Rings” or a “Hobbit” fan,  you can sign up for the tours including the caves and the hobbits houses in the same place.
