Thanks to the drop in the Australian dollar and the beginning of summer in the southern hemisphere, now is the time to plan travel to the exotic islands around Australia. Here are a few of our favorites.
In the age of social media, the summer time can be a very strenuous season of the year. After all, this is your chance to show all your friends and creepy strangers the baller life that you live off of your un-tenured elementary school teacher salary. But get ready for fall!
Welcome to Happy Island, Thailand. It's the stuff screensavers are made of -- a can't-possibly-be-real limestone karst topped with peach-fuzz foliage and surrounded by luminous water.
"The water is soooo warm!" That sentence keeps popping out of Angelenos' mouths. It's practically impossible to stick a toe into the California Pacific Ocean without making some sort of immediate involuntary exclamation regarding the water temperature.

I must be a masochist, because I often listen to/watch "Above The Clouds of Pompeii" and "Elysium" on repeat. Bear's Den has the rare ability to pack a million emotions into one single lyrical phrase.

"Unspoiled." The word conjures up images of chaste fawns lapping up crystal-clear waters in a lush valley while a harpist plays n the background. Or, we might've just described Bambi. But really, here are tourist-friendly islands where civilization hasn't yet fully ruined everything.
