French Polynesia’s popular islands of Tahiti, Moorea, and Bora Bora are in the middle of the South Pacific, but they aren’t as far away as they seem. Commonly referred to as the Islands of Tahiti, they can be reached within eight hours from the western United States.
The main island of Tahiti, with its capital in Papeete, is a good place to start your journey, with a stay at one of the 5-star resorts, followed by a short ferry ride to the more rugged Moorea, whose top-notch resorts line the northern coast facing the iconic Magic Mountain. Home to the legendary Mt. Otemanu, Bora Bora is known for its glamorous, romantic accommodations that embrace the island’s coves and surrounding atolls.

Planning a trip to Canada and figuring out an itinerary may seem monumental due to the size and geographical layout of the country. Bordered by three oceans, the Canadian motto “from sea to sea to sea” becomes more relevant when you start planning a cross country tour. Most travelers with a limited amount of time tend to focus on one area of the country. This is a good idea unless you incorporate some long distance internal flights. Canada stretches more than 5,500 kilometers from east to west, and much of the remote north is all but inaccessible.

During a 50-year project in the 17th century, Amsterdam grew to four times its previous size, becoming the 3rd largest city in the world after London and Paris.
Central to that plan was the Canal Belt, a network of concentric canals that is now UNESCO listed.
Built on reclaimed land, Amsterdam is a feat of ingenuity and still crackles with the ambition, cultural tolerance, and enterprise that drove the 17th-century Golden Age when the Netherlands led the world in trade, maritime power, culture, and economic might.
This is the city of Rembrandt, Anne Frank, the Red Light District, Johan Cruyff, and the Dutch East and West India Companies; there’s a world of fascinating stories, spellbinding art and architecture that has stood the test of time.
