3) Nice: Now, having been here myself, this is a vacation spot that I would suggest to anyone. There is a reason the French call it “Nice La Belle” (translates to ‘Nice the beautiful’). Located on the southern coast of France, right on the Mediterranean Sea, Nice is France’s 2nd most popular city to visit after the “City of Love”, Paris. Light blue waters, French culture and beautiful weather are all reasons to pay Nice a visit.

2) Paris: We will stay in France and explore Paris, the “City of Love”. As the capital of France, there is much to see and do in Paris. Visit the Eiffel Tower or come during Fashion Week, Paris never disappoints. Home to some of the most amazing revolutionary sights, Paris is truly a gem. I have heard many a person say that they have found themselves in this amazing city.

1) Maui: Switching gears, we head back to the homeland and explore our island state, Hawaii! Maui is Hawaii’s 2nd largest island. Known for snorkeling, wind surfing, surfing, kiteboarding and kitesurfing, Maui is a great place to go with the family or for a romantic couple’s getaway. Not that far from the world we live in, Hawaii makes for an affordable and close island getaway, Perfect for those of us with vacation hour balances.
