For a bucket list-worthy vacay with scenery you’ve probably only seen on the big screen, head to Erg Chebbi in the Sahara Desert.  Located in Morocco, this erg – or large sea of wind-blown sand – has plenty of jaw dropping views to offer, all within easy reach of other vacation hotspots like Casablanca, Marrakesh, and Tangier.

What a view!  The Lost Lands Fest is a music and arts festival hosted by the Werribee Mansion near Melbourne, Australia. This stunning Italianate-style home promises to be a ‘living, breathing postcard of 19th century Australia’, but there is plenty else to take in around the property, including gardens, a spa, a nearby zoo, and of course glamping.  With so many reasons to pay a visit, this is definitely a bucket list-worthy trip.
