Kyoto, Japan

Kyoto is a cultural hub, and certainly a wonderful destination for history buffs and those who love exploring temples and castles. Kyoto is also a great city for relaxingit has tons of onsens (Japanese thermal springs or baths) to help heal almost any ailment. Did we mention the food? The streets of Gijon are lined with izakayas (Japanese-style pubs) and restaurants serving the finest Kobe beef and freshest tuna. 

Be sure to catch a traditional kabuki show and see the Geishas while you are there. Extra tip: Its just a short bullet train ride away from Tokyo which is well worth taking if you have the opportunity!

Cape Town, South Africa

Wildlife, wine, gourmet food, spas, adventure. Cape Town has it all! Spend your days drinking the finest wines in Stellenbosch and the Western Cape, taking a gondola to the top of Table Mountain for stunning views or shopping and enjoying fresh seafood at the famous Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. 

From Cape Town you are just a short trip away from some of the best wildlife and nature parks in the entire world, where you might be lucky enough to see the Big FiveElephant, Rhino, Lion, Leopard and Cape Buffalo. The spring time will be South Africas fall so expect more pleasant temperatures than you would get in their summer! Extra tip: Dont forget to visit the local markets and pick up some handicrafts as souvenirs for your friends and family.

Nice, France

The French Riviera has long been one of the top tourist destinations in the world, and it is no surprise with the winding cobblestone streets, turquoise blue waters and smooth pebble beaches. With great springtime weather, you can expect lots of days of suns for exploring the French Riviera from St. Tropez to medieval zean adorable historic town perched on the cliffs just east of Nice. 

If you are into history, there is much to see and do in this region, but if relaxing is more your style, there is plenty in that department too! Extra tip: We recommend visiting the Fragonard Perfume Factory and taking a stroll along the lovely Promenade des Anglais.
